Lyrics:

I've been standing on the corner all day
Tryin' to think of little things to say
'Cause she walks by ev'ry day about this time
And I don't think, I'll ever get her off of my mind.

Well I only met her 'bout a week ago
But the way she smiles let me know
That she could see that maybe we were two of a kind.
And I don't think I'll ever get her off of my mind.

Oh she's so pretty I couldn't believe
She'd ever look my way
But the way I'm feeling
I'm gonna be stealing
That little girl's heart today.

Well, I'm so happy I could almost fly
And I guess you know the reason why,
I'm walkin' down the street with her little hand in mine.
And I don't think I'll ever get her off of my mind.

Oh she's so pretty I couldn't believe
She'd ever look my way
ut the way I'm feeling
I'm gonna be stealing
That little girl's heart today.

Well, I'm so happy I could almost fly
And I guess you know the reason why,
'm walkin' down the street with her little hand in mine.
And I don't think I'll ever get her off of my mind.
And I don't think I'll ever get her off of my mind.
