And we’ll go out on the town
Why don’t you let me call you that?
You’re acting so much like my mom
She didn’t like it when I called her name
You and her are the same

Chorus:
When we go out, you’ll know someone who’s there
You will feel someone’s staring at you
You’re on my mind, as I dream of the game
When I’m holding you,
Then I turn around to find that you were gone
Which was exactly like my mom!
And I will go hang up my sailor suit
Right face down on the lawn

When we go out, you’ll know someone is there
You will feel someone’s staring at you
You’re on my mind, as I dream of a game
When I’m holding you,
Then I turn around to find that you were gone
Which was exactly like my mom!
And I will go hang up my sailor suit
Right face down on the lawn

I see you moving towards the deck,
Cause you don’t trust me anymore
I need to find someone who’s nice to me
The way that you used to be
And then I’m gonna call her you
Cause she’ll remind me of you
I’m gonna dress her in the sailor suit
That will look very cute

Chorus
When we go out, she’ll know someone is there
You will feel someone’s staring at her
She’s on my mind, as I dream of a game
When she’s holding you,
Then she turns around to find that I am gone
Which was exactly like my mom!
And she will go hang uW her sailor suit
Right face down on the lawn
