Sittin' in front of your house,
Like rain in early dawn
Workin' on a love letter
Got my radio on.

Got my eye on your window pane
And I smoked a lot of cigarettes.
Mercy, mercy but love is strange
And you haven't even kissed me yet.

Look comes to push,
Push comes to shove,
Shove comes to touch,
Touch will come to love.

Workin' on a love letter,
Listenin' to a love song,
I'm writing you a love letter, love letter,
Got my radio on...radio, radio

Hope you get the message baby.
I know that you're gonna let me in.
It's real in your neighborhood
And this is more than I'm gonna bend.

Look comes to push,
Push comes to shove,
Shove comes to touch,
Touch will come to love.

Why don't sit waitin'
Why don't behavin'
Love's waiting in the car,
In the car and rain now.

Workin' on a love letter,
Listenin' to a love song,
I'm writing you a love letter, love letter,
Got my radio on...radio, radio

Guitar solo

Look comes to push,
Push comes to shove,
Shove comes to touch,
Touch will come to love.

(3 times with adlibs)
Workin' on a love letter,
Listenin' to a love song,
I'm writing you a love letter, love letter,
Got my radio on...radio, radio
