(Ba, da-ba-da da da) I can't find the time to tell you
(Ba, da-ba-da da da) I can't find the time to tell you

So many things to say,
I could fit it in a book, fit it in a book
of a thousand pages, yeah

So many people say,
that I couldn't tell a lie, couldn't tell a lie
in a thousand ages

Maybe you're wrong, maybe you're wrong

(Ba, da-ba-da da da) I can't find the time to tell you
Oh no, yeah
(Ba, da-ba-da da da) I can't find the time to tell you

I look at your pretty face and I,
fall in love with you, fall in love with you
every time I see you, yeah

Nightgowns with real lace they are,
flowin' to the ground, flowin' to the ground
in a mist, around you

Maybe you're wrong...maybe you're wrong...maybe you're wrong!

(Ba, da-ba-da da da) I can't find the time to tell you,

and oh--- (Ba, da-ba-da da da) I can't find the time, time
baby, I can't find the time, ba da, ba da, yeah

I can't find the time to tell you, I can't find the time to tell you
No, no I can't find the time to tell you,

Oh now, ohh...Ba da, ba da...I can't find the time to tell you.

    aside from some of the lyrics listed being wrong, i.e. its baby your wrong AND NOT maybe your wrong... but essentially the song is about a guy trying to convince his girlfriend that he is in love with her and she is not sure if it is true or not because they are so young, actually just 16 at the time... he tells her how much he loves her everytime he sees her and the reference to the nightgown of regal lace was a vision in his head of what she would wear on their wedding night. the story was related between friends and from the story the came the lyrics --- ITS A TRUE STORY FROM BACK IN 1966.
