It's courtin' time

I've been holdin' back a good deal longer than I shoulda oughta
I bet U got the notion that I couldn't make up my mind
But now I'm ready 2 tell ur mama that I gots 2 get with her daughter
Put on ur good dress, baby, it's courtin' time

Every day I wait is just another day ur baby's lonely
No matter what I'm talkin' about it always comes back 2 U
I lost more friends this week because the only
The only 1 I want deserves the best, the very best that I can do
Put on ur shoppin' shoes, honey, it's courtin' time, yes it is
Yeah, keep it right there

All the friends I thought I had, found out they were not at all
With no regrets, the joy I get from knowin' that U're mine, huh
A thousand times the victor I am (Yes!)
Baby, baby, it's courtin', courtin', courtin', courtin' time
Yeah, get ready

It's courtin' time, yeah (Courtin', it's courtin' time)
Baby, now U gonna know, huh (Courtin', it's courtin' time)
What it's like when a boy truly loves a girl (It's courtin')
Yeah (It's courtin' time)
When I do that, when I do that, when I do that
I'm gonna make them heads twirl
It's courtin' time, oh...
Ah yeah
It's courtin', courtin' time
It's courtin', courtin' time
It's courtin', courtin', courtin' time, yeah!
Come on and get some, baby, it's courtin' time, yeah yeah
