Lyrics

Girl afraid
Where do his intentions lay?
Or does he even have any?

She says:
 "He never really looks at me
  I give him every opportunity!
  In the room downstairs he sat and stared...
  In the room downstairs he sat and stared...
  I'll never make that mistake again!"

I'll never make that mistake again...
I'll never make that mistake again...

Boy afraid
Prudence never pays
And everything she wants costs money

 "But she doesn't even like me
  And I know because she said so!
  In the room downstairs she sat and stared...
  In the room downstairs she sat and stared...
  I'll never make that mistake again!"
