Penny for your thoughts
I've got to know where I stand
I just for to know where I am with you
So here's penny for your thoughts, a nickel for a kiss
A dime if you tell me that you love me
Penny for your thoughts, a nickel for a kiss
A dime if you tell me that you love me
Walkin' holdin' hands, you say you're mine all mine
Then soon another face steals your eyes away
It's just a guessing game and I can't help feelin' used
Love shouldn't be so darn confused
So here's penny for your thoughts, a nickel for a kiss
A dime if you tell me that you love me
Penny for your thoughts, a nickel for a kiss
A dime if you tell me that you love me
People love to talk, they say you're usin' me
Though face to face you swear I'm the only one
If I had a crystal ball I would gaze into your mind
See what you were thinkin', if my ship was sinkin'
If you're leavin' me behind
So here's penny for your thoughts, a nickel for a kiss
A dime if you tell me that you love me
Penny for your thoughts, a nickel for a kiss
A dime if you tell me that you love me
Girl, it should be so darn easy to do
If you love me like I love you
Girl, if I had a crystal ball [A crystal ball] I would gaze into your mind
See what you were thinkin', if my ship was sinkin'
If you're leavin' me behind
So here's penny for your thoughts, a nickel for a kiss
A dime if you tell me that you love me
Penny for your thoughts, a nickel for a kiss
A dime if you tell me that you love me
Girl, it should be so darn easy to do
If you love me like I love you
So here's penny for your thoughts (Hey, baby), a nickel for a kiss
A dime if you tell me that you love me (You tell me you love me)
Penny for your thoughts, a nickel for a kiss
A dime if you tell me that you love me
So here's penny for your thoughts, a nickel for a kiss (Ooh, your thoughts, baby)
A dime if you tell me that you love me
Penny for your thoughts, a nickel for a kiss (Ooh, a kiss, baby)
A dime if you tell me that you love me
Penny for your thoughts, a nickel for a kiss
A dime if you tell me that you love me
Penny for your thoughts {Only me, only me}, a nickel for a kiss
(Just me) {Yeah, yeah, yeah} (Oh, yeah, yeah)
Penny for your thoughts (Just your thoughts), a nickel for a kiss (And a kiss, baby)
A dime if you tell me that you love me (Tell me you love me)
Penny for your thoughts {Only me}, a nickel for a kiss {Darling, can't you see}
(Oh, yeah) {Yeah, yeah} (Yeah, yeah)
Penny for your thoughts (Ooh, baby), a nickel for a kiss
A dime if you tell me that you love me
