It ain't so much a question of not knowing what to do. 
I knowed whut's right and wrong since I been ten. 
I heared a lot of stories and I reckon they are true 
About how girls're put upon by men. 
I know I mustn't fall into the pit, 
But when I'm with a feller, I fergit! 
I'm jist a girl who cain't say no, 
I'm in a turrible fix I always say "come on, le's go" 
Jist when I orta say nix! 
When a person tries to kiss a girl, 
I know she orta give his face a smack. 
But as soon as someone kisses me, 
I somehow, sorta, wanta kiss him back! 
I'm jist a fool when lights are low 
I cain't be prissy and quaint 
I ain't the type that can faint 
How c'n I be whut I ain't? 
I cain't say no! 
Whut you goin' to do when a feller gits flirty, and starts to talk purty? 
Whut you goin' to do? 
S'posin' 'at he says 'at yer lips're like cherries, er roses, er berries? 
Whut you goin' to do? 
S'posin' 'at he says 'at you're sweeter 'n cream, 
And he's gotta have cream er die? 
Whut you goin' to do when he talks that way, 
Spit in his eye? 
I'm jist a girl who cain't say no, 
Cain't seem to say it at all 
I hate to disserpoint a beau 
When he is payin' a call! 
Fer a while I ack refined and cool, 
A settin on the velveteen setee 
Nen I think of thet ol' golden rule, 
And do fer him what he would do fer me! 
I cain't resist a Romeo 
In a sombrero and chaps 
Soon as I sit on their laps 
Somethin' inside of me snaps 
I cain't say no!
