Well it was just two years ago,
Met a girl in San Fransisco
Took her by the hand and I trapped her love.
And it was then that I could see.
Just her reflection of natural beauty.
Never would've thought she'd become my own.

Oh, you got my heartbeatin' like a drum.
"I need you or sadly I'll be done." (?)
I swear my hands start shaking and my heart beats racing,
Like bum, bum, rupapabum, oh, bum, bum, hearts beating like drums.
Oh bum, bum, rupapabum, oh,
My hand starts shaking and my heart beats racing,
Like bum, bum, rupapabum, oh, bum, bum, hearts beating like drums.
Oh bum, bum, rupapabum, oh,
My hand starts shaking and my heart beats racing like...

Well now two years have passed,
And we've had our ups and downs.
"Please I'll be sad if your up and gone." (?)
But you're still by my side,
Said everything would be alright.
I guess I'm tryin' to say would you be my wife?

Oh, you got my heartbeatin' like a drum.
"I need you or sadly I'll be done." (?)
I swear my hands start shaking and my heart beats racing,
Like bum, bum, rupapabum, oh, bum, bum, hearts beating like drums.
Oh bum, bum, rupapabum, oh,
My hand starts shaking and my heart beats racing,
Like bum, bum, rupapabum, oh, bum, bum, hearts beating like drums.
Oh bum, bum, rupapabum, oh,
My hand starts shaking and my heart beats racing like...

My hearts beating like a drum,
"?"
If you know what I'm talkin' about,
Let me hear you holla.
Me hearts beating like a drum,
"?"
If you know what I'm talkin' about,
Then let me hear you holla.

Bum, bum, rupapabum, oh bum, bum, my hearts beating like drums,
Oh bum, bum, rupapabum, oh
My hand starts shaking and my heartbeats racing like
Like bum, rupapabum, bum, bum, rupapabum,
Oh bum, bum, my hearts beating like drums,
My hand starts shaking and my heartbeats racing like
Like bum, rupapabum, bum, bum, rupapabum,
Oh bum, bum, my hearts beating like drums,
Oh bum, bum, rupapabum, oh,
My hands start shakin' and my heartbeats racin' like
