May I Take Your Hat?
May I Take Your Hat
May I handle your clothes
I like the way the light lands on you
I like the way you move
It doesn't matter that you've been spoken for
If you knew what your fiancee was up to
May I take your pulse
May I pour you something vital
You've got to learn to trust me
I have your best intentions at heart
I could use your home phone number
I promise to be judicious about calling
Let me look into your eyes
Let me see who is home in them
I'd like to invite myself in
I promise not to force anything
May I stroke your cat?
May I comb your hair
May I have the next dance?
