So you told all the boys that you were gonna take me out

Ya even ya even had the nerve to make a bet a yes you did
That I, I would give in all of my love  you would win
But you haven't, you haven't won it yet
You took me for a pushover
Oh you thought I was a pushover
Whoa I'm not a pushover
You thought my love was easy to get

All of the girls think you're fine
They even call ya Romeo
Ya got 'em, yeah you got 'em runnin' to and fro
Yes ya have
But I don't want a one night thrill
I want a love that's for real
And I can tell by your line, your's is not the lasting kind

You took me for a pushover
Oh you thought I was a pushover
Whoa I'm not a pushover
You thought that you could change my mind
Your temptin' lips (mmm hmm) your way hair (oh yeah)
Your pretty eyes  with that (ahhh) come hither stare
It makes me weak and I, I start to bend
And then I stop and think again
No (no), no (no), no don't let yourself go

I hate to spoil your reputation
I want true love not an imitation
And I'm hip to every word in your conversation

Who took me for a pushover
Whoa I'm not a pushover
Whoa you thought I was a pushover
Whoa you can't (push me over)
Nobody is gonna (push me over)
Oh you're not man enough to (push me over)
Everybody thought you was gonna (push me over)
