“You’re A Lady” Lyrics

Now the evening has come to a close
And I’ve had my last dance with you
On to the empty streets we go
And it might be my last chance with you
So I might as well get it over
The things I have to say
Won’t wait until another day

You’re a lady
I’m a man
You’re supposed to understand
How these things are often planned
To be

You’re romantic
I’m a fool
You’re the teacher
I’ve come to school
Here I sit and hope that you love me

You’re pure magic
Unlock my chain
Nothing ventured
And nothing gained
And so I say with no restraint
Be mine, be mine

Hard to answer
Yes, I’ll agree
But then, I’ve got to know
I’m not asking you to marry me
Just a little love to show
Oh, I know I could make you happy
The things I have to say
Won’t wait until another day

You’re a lady
I’m a man
You’re supposed to understand
How these things are often planned
To be

You’re romantic
And I’m a fool
You’re the teacher
I’ve come to school
Here I sit and hope that you love me

You’re pure magic
Unlock my chain
Nothing ventured
And nothing gained
And so I say with no restraint
Be mine
