you give me something to live for
when you say “maybe i will”
what can i promise or give for
such a thrill?
you make the sweetest addition
when you say “maybe i do”
you rouse my only ambition–
i’m like the old tortoise who raced the hare
i’m slow but i’ll win
i’m starting and i’ll get there
you have to give in
i’ll make a “yes” out of “maybe”
i’ve got to do it somehow
that gives me something to live for now
