(S. Tyrell / S. Tyrell / C. Townes)

Hey boy, don't be shy
Waiting all alone
Think about what you can give
Some boys never learn
That's the way to live
And it's the secret
To getting it right

Living carefully, always filled with doubt
Scared to make a move too soon
Just once, take a chance
She will take one, too
'Cause that's the secret
To getting it right

It's not who loves you as how much do you love
And what's in your heart that shows what you're made of
You're made of love, hey, boy
It's all right
Someone understands
You don't have so far to go
Reach out for her hand
Then you'll really know
The secret to getting it right

You're made of love, hey, boy
It's all right
Someone understands
You don't have so far to go
Reach out for her hand
Then you'll really know
The secret to getting it right

Reach out, take her hand
Then you'll really know
You'll know that you're getting it right
Yes, you'll know that you're getting it right
