Honey I know you got a good job 
You're out there makin' all that dough
But they keep you late workin' that overtime 
And I don't ever see you no more
I guess you're not checking your message machine 
Seems like you're never in
I got a hunch if we could just do lunch 
I could get your attention again
I know you got your schedule and you're keepin', it tight
You got somethin' goin' mornin', noon, and night
But I got somethin' I know you're gonna like
Honey, can you squeeze me in

I got it circled in red on the calendar, baby 
You told me tonight's the night
Got the champagne chilled, got a gourmet meal 
Soft music and candlelight
I try to get you on the phone, I get stuck on hold 
I guess you keep getting sidetracked
I been faxin' you love notes all day long 
But you don't ever fax me back
I know you got your schedule and you're keepin' it tight
You got somethin' goin' mornin', noon, and night
But I somethin' I know you're gonna like
Honey, can you squeeze me in

Whoever said it's a man's world don't know
What he's talkin' about
You got me workin' around the clock
Honey, tryin' to figure you out
I know time is money, but there's more to life honey
Than how much you can spend
You got to make a little time for the good times 
So honey can you squeeze me in
