Next time, it won’t be the same
Next time, It won’t be a crying shame.
I will research the man and find out what I can
Because before I fall I want to know it all.
Next time, it won’t be the same.
Next time, I’m asking Jane and Sue
My girlfriends will know just what to do
They’re gonna check him out and if the guy’s a lout
And then at least I’ll know
Next time I’m asking Jane and Sue
Next time I’m gonna take it slow
Nobody will say “I told you so.”
Before I leave the ground I’m gonna ask around
I won’t stick out my neck until the credit check.
Next time I’m gonna take it slow.
Next time, It won’t be the same
Next time I won’t be to blame
I’m asking Mom or Dad if he is good or bad
I”ll call the FBI maybe they’ll know the guy.
Next time it won’t be the same.
