Put On Your Big Boy Pants
 
Lyrics
VERSE
I've been watchin' you -- watchin' me
But just lookin' won't do you no good; just makes you a wannabe
Now I'm thinkin' you look pretty fine, and if I wanted to make you mine
I'd do what I had to do

CHORUS
(So I know you need to) (Now I know you need to) (Yeah, you gotta)
Put on your big-boy pants if you wanta have a chance
You can't go slinkin' around if you wanta go downtown
Then after the dance for a chance at romance
You gotta put on your big-boy pants

VERSE
Looks like you comin' over here; did you get your courage up?
Desire has a funny way of helpin' you fall in love
Just a few more steps; I'm right here, but you look a bit paralyzed with fear
Just do what you need to do

Repeat CHORUS

BRIDGE
Well, right now, it's lookin' like you were overcome with doubt
So I guess I'll just have to show you how to ask me out

RIDE

Repeat CHORUS (2x)/TAG
Yeah, you gotta put on your big-boy pants
