lyrics

THERE SHE IS.
IN HER CHAIR.
ON THE PHONE.
SARAH...
THERE SHE IS.
SITTING THERE,
ALL ALONE.
SARAH...

YOU SHOULD GO.
ASK HER OUT.
WHILE YOU CAN.
DO IT!
DON’T SAY, “NO.”
DON’T WIMP OUT.
BE A MAN!

SCREW IT . . .

EACH DAY I COME TO WORK
AND I SEE HER SITTING THERE.
BUT I NEVER DO
WHAT I LONG TO DO.
IF I WERE SOMEONE ELSE...
IF I HAD MORE CONFIDENCE,
I COULD FIN’LLY SAY
WHAT I LONG TO SAY . . .

Hey...

My name is Sam.
I work in payroll.
I thought I’d spruce
Myself up
And introduce
Myself.
That all right?
I mean, to better “unite,”
I thought I’d chat you up
And say I think your
Sweater is tight!

Not that it’s tight!
I didn’t mean . . .
I mean, it fits all right . . .
I wasn’t . . . looking . . . at . . .
<sigh>

(Try that again . . .)

My name is Sam.
We’ve never spoken before,
But I swore
I’d introduce myself.
You seem nice.
I mean, I’ve noticed you there --
In your chair.
You make me stop and stare . . .

(That’s stupid.)

Hello there, Sarah.
How’re you doin’ today?
I just stopped by here to say
That bein’ near you
Takes my breath away.

It’s not just your looks --
Although you’ve clearly got style --
But it’s your beautiful smile.
It’s the way that you beguile
Me while
You file
And fax and answer the phone.
Little acts of kindness you’ve shown.
Ever since I’ve met you I’ve known
I’m tired of being alone.

I wanna ask you out.
I came here to invite
You out
To dinner tonight,
In the hopes
That it might
Ignite
Something more.
I find it hard to ignore
How I adore
You girl.
You gotta know
I’ve tried to do this before,

But ev’ry time that I tried,
You know my tongue was always tied.
I had to hide
All my feelings inside.
I tried
To take it in stride . . .

But they wouldn’t subside.

So here I am.

My name is ... Sam . . .

FIVE O’CLOCK.
TIME TO GO.
HERE’S YOUR CHANCE.
ASK HER!

(Come on. Come on! Just do it . . .)

(Crap . . .)

FIVE OH-ONE.
WATCH HER GO.
LOSE YOUR CHANCE.
MISS HER . . .

Well . . .

MAYBE TOMORROW . . .
