Standing on the corner watching all the pretty girls go by.
And I'm trying to play it so cool as I'm tryin to catch their eyes.
And I know sometimes my wandering eye has brought some rain
Ooo baby
So I'm standing out here on this corner trying to find the words to explain

A pretty girl's like a flower, you just gotta stay close to
They come and go like the hour
What's a guy to do
But when it comes to forever, you know my heart is true
Of all the pretty flowers
Baby I picked you

Many blossoms line the streets a thousand colors that I could choose
And I'm trying to imagine the taste of all the petals I must refuse
And I know there's nothing I can say to ease your mind, but I'll try
The days I spend here on this corner are all just passin time

A pretty girl's like a flower you just gotta stay close to
They come and go like the hour
What's a guy to do
But when it comes to forever, you know my heart is true
Of all the pretty flowers, baby I picked you.

And I know there's nothing I can say to ease your mind
But I'll try
The days I stand here on this corner are all just passin time

A pretty girl's like a flower you just gotta stay close to
They come and go like the hour, what's a guy to do
But when it comes to forever you know my heart is true
Of all the pretty flowers, baby I picked you.

Standing on the corner watchin all the pretty girls go by.
