I Can't Do That

I saw you ridin' down the street in your fine car you really
Blew my mind away I waved you smiled it was a near collision
I made a quick u-turn to follow you but cops were on my tail they asked me
What's your hurry? Put my foot down, wrong decision.

I kept on lookin and I found you with your girlfriends in the
Shopping mall I said hello you smiled again my heart went thumpin.
I asked you out you were shy I persisted girlfriends wide-eyed you resisted
What's your hurry? Disappointment, girl you're somethin.

Chorus
You always say-in
I can't do that
You always waitin
'Til tomorrow
Please don't postpone it
I can't do that
I can't wait another day
You know you're drivin me insane.

Break
I showed up at your house and knocked on your door
Your mama come out and says
What are you standin there for
I said I'm just lookin for that
Sweet thing inside
She said Hey, brother
You better
Run and hide.

You always say-in
I can't do that
You always waitin
'Til tomorrow
Please don't postpone it
I can't do that
I can't wait another day
You know you're drivin me insane.

I sneaked around the house threw rocks at your wall
Your window shade went up
I started to call (Hey, baby!)
Your daddy's gun came out
And he's shootin at me!
I'm tryin to tell you girl
That's not the way it's supposed to be.

I took you walkin in the park one sunny day the birds were chirpin
Everywhere the sky was blue you smiled and then you changed your mind and
Ran away the clouds were dark the dogs were barkin crows were callin me hey
What's your hurry? Disillusioned, what's your problem?

I watched you dancin' in the front row at the rock show boys were playin
You were swingin to the beat you smiled my feet aren't so
Accomplished I tried to keep up you had eyes only for the singer I thought finally
What's my hurry? I give up girl, what's your story?

You always say-in
I can't do that
You always waitin
'Til tomorrow
Please don't postpone it
I can't do that
I can't wait another day
You know you're drivin me insane.
