Ode to Clarissa
Lyrics
I knock on your door
I tiptoe on the floor
I hope your daddy ainít home right now
He warned me once before

You know he warned me once before

I stay up late
So we can keep our date
I love that we donít get no sleep
So to your window I creep
You know he warned me once before

Iím the one your mamma told ya Ďbout
Iím the one your pappa told ya Ďbout

Now youíre in love
And why shouldnít you be
Iím everything youíll never be
You say donít leave
Baby, I canít wait
Next stop: Michelle, my second date*

Iím the one your mamma told ya Ďbout
Iím the one your pappa told ya Ďbout

*thanks to Andreas Bottcher for fixing a mistake in this line
