First Impression

These are song lyrics for an original song.  Really, it's a gag song, inspired by a conversation with two friends of mine.

First Impression

Music by:  N/A yet!

The first time I saw you, I just knew the song was true
I became a believer when I saw your face
Wanted you to see me, ever so desperately
Didn't even know your name, did I lose my place?

Oh girl, I was stupid, shy, weak, and vapid
Couldn't even show you the one good side I had
And there you were so fine, so gorgeous, such a real dime
Who could ever blame you for getting sour and mad?

(Chorus)
Can I have a second chance for a first impression?
I'm talking about giving love a chance for resurrection
I've had so much time for some proper reflection
So please give me a second chance... for a first impression.

Not saying I was right, you can clearly see my plight
Everyone can be ignorant and make mistakes
Asking for forgiveness, really I am such a mess
Know it's not like movies where there are second takes

Oh girl, see my brain fart, pierces like a dart
Was too astounded by you to even think straight
Can't you see I'm better, I tell folks that I met her
The girl who can make me a better soul and mate

(Background vocals)
So I'm asking again, I just want a chance...

(Chorus)
Can I have a second chance for a first impression?
I'm talking about giving love a chance for resurrection
I've had so much time for some proper reflection
So please give me a second chance... for a first impression.

(Rap Bridge)
So you and me, were in the bathroom you see
Didn't even know it was a girl's room, it was an emergency, zoom!
Not trying to excuse what my muse is discussing
Even though you found the whole situation disgusting
But you were so fine, sublime, woulda been a crime
If I didn't ask for your name, number, and dinner on my dime
And you just stared at me incredulous, atmosphere just nebulous
Swear I shrunk ten sizes that day, now in a funk that I cannot slay
But I only regret it because I can't forget your piercing gaze

(Chorus)
Can I have a second chance for a first impression?
I'm talking about giving love a chance for resurrection
I've had so much time for some proper reflection
So please give me a second chance... for a first impression.

(Background vocals)
So I'm asking again, I just want a chance...

(Chorus)
Can I have a second chance for a first impression?
I'm talking about giving love a chance for resurrection
I've had so much time for some proper reflection
So please give me a second chance... for a first impression.
