You act like you don't know me
When you see me on the street
You're makin' like I turn you off
When I know you think I'm sweet

It don't have to be like that
I guess you're insecure
If you say what's on your mind
I might answer 'sure'

So walk a little slower
And I try to catch your eye
Sometimes, it's hard to see
The good things passing by

There may never be a sign
No flashing neon light
Telling you to make your move
Or when the time is right

CHORUS:
Why not
Take a crazy chance
Why not
Do a crazy dance
If you lose moment
You might lose a lot
So... why not
Why not

You always dress in yellow
When you want to dress in gold
Instead of listening to your heart
You do just what you're told

You keep waiting where you are
For what, you'll never know
Let's just get into your car
And go, baby, go

CHORUS

Oh... oh
I could be the one
For you
Oh... yeah
Maybe yes,
Maybe no
Oh... oh

It could be the thing to do
What I'm saying is
You gotta let me know

You'll never get to heaven or even to L.A.
If you don't believe there's a way
Why not
Take a star from the sky
Why not
Spread your wings and fly
It might take a little
And it might take a lot
But... why not
Why not

CHORUS
