It started way back in third grade
I used to sit beside Emilou Hayes
A pink dress, a matching bow in her ponytail
She kissed me on the schoolbus but told me not to tell

Next day I chased her round the playground
Cross the monkeybars to the merry-go round
And Emilou got caught passing me a note
Before the teacher took it I read what she wrote

CHORUS:
Do you love me, do you want me my friend
And if you do, well then don't be afraid
To take me by the hand if you want to
I think this is how love goes - check yes or no

Now we're grown up and she's my wife
Still like two kids with stars in our eyes
Ain't much changed, I still chase Emilou
Up and down the hall around the bed in our room

Last night I took her out in a white limousine
Twenty years together she still gets to me
Can't believe it's been that long ago
When we got started with just a little note

REPEAT CHORUS (2 x's)

Check yes or no
Check yes or no
Check yes or no (2 x's - fading out)
