My mom and daddy both say
I must be crazy to be this infatuated
But I know you know
We got something special never felt before
You get me going just looking at you
And the feeling's not hard to recognise so
Alright I'll come out in the open with it
Will you walk out with me.

Cos you're the first girl I've ever loved
Tell me do you feel the same way
Well I'll show you I'm not like all the rest
Cos I know who I am

Your skin is smooth as silk and your eyes like stars
You're just like a picture book standing there
But I can't go on
No, I can't go on thinking you don't feel the same way that I do

I'll be so careful I'll hold you like china
I'll promise not to hurt you I'll hold you like china
You won't feel nothing, I'll hold you like china
'Cos I know it's your first time

Your mum and dad don't like me
And they tell me every time I call around to see you
I don't know why
Cos I always straighten my tie and comb my hair
I know your brother thinks that
I'm a limp wristed wimp from the other side of town
I know he's got me wrong
Because I'm really not like that, I'll tell you why

You're the first girl I've ever loved
Tell me do you feel the same way
Well I'll show you I'm not like all the rest
'Cos I know who I am

I remember the very first time I held your hand
And that was the last time you were so close to me
But I can't go on
No, I can't go on thinking you don't feel the same way as I do

I'll be so careful I'll hold you like china
I'll promise not to hurt you I'll hold you like china
You won't feel nothing, I'll hold you like china
'Cos I know it's your first time

I know you know and now I want to, I want to tell everybody
I know you know and now I want them all to see...
