How could I forget what she had on
Halter top with the capri pants on
Had a smile that would stop time
And pretty feet which is a fetish of mine
Hair down to her shoulders barely
Lip gloss with no make-up surely
I wasn't gonna let her get away
Until she heard me say

Excuse me miss
What's your name
Where are you from 
And I come and possibly 
Can I take you out tonight
To a movie, to the park
I'll have you home before it's dark 
So let me know 
Can I take you out tonight

Don't care if I get rejected
At least then I won't regret it
Regret the fact I missed the chance 
For romance at least
I walk away knowing I tried my best 
And I'm going, I'm going on with my day
Cause at least she heard me say

Excuse me miss
What's your name
Where are you from 
And I come and possibly 
Can I take you out tonight
To a movie, to the park
I'll have you home before it's dark 
So let me know 
Can I take you out tonight

Excuse me miss
What's your name
Where are you from 
And I come and possibly 
Can I take you out tonight
To a movie, to the park
I'll have you home before it's dark 
So let me know 
Can I take you out tonight

That's why I had to come over
And introduce myself to you
Cause you never gonna know 
When you're gonna find love
And hopefully I'll find it in you

Excuse me miss
What's your name
Where are you from 
And I come and possibly 
Can I take you out tonight
To a movie, to the park
I'll have you home before it's dark 
So let me know 
Can I take you out tonight
