Lyrics

Some folks say before they die

They want to run with the bulls

Some want to ride the eye of a hurricane

Some want to live like there’s no tomorrow

Then they’re strappin’ on a ‘chute

And jumpin’ out of a plane

 

Well, I’m not lookin’ to push my luck or tempt my fate

To get there early just to

Stand in line at those Pearly Gates

And besides having a few more vodka tonics

My bucket list only has one small item upon it

   CHORUS

   Before I die, I, I, I, I, I

   Just want to get one straight answer from you

Some folks say what keeps this old world turnin’ around

Is everybody having something to look forward to

Like a meal, like a show, like something fantastic

For me,that something is you

 

Well, I’m not lookin’ to clip your wings

Or cramp your style

I’m not asking you to buy the cow

Just a simple yes or no, are you coming to dinner?

Instead of “Do I have to tell you now?”

   CHORUS

You love to tell me you love me

That’s so easy for you to say

But when I ask, “When will you be here?”

You won’t give me the time of day

 

If Scarlett Johansson asked you to take her to coffee

Would you give her the same runaround you give me?

I’m cursed ‘cuz you know you’ve already got me

So you see no need for common courtesy

 

Well, I’m not lookin’ to change human nature

Beauty can bring the best of us to our knees

But if you’re not scoring tonight with Scarlett Johansson

You might wanna give an ETA to me

   CHORUS

   Just wanna get one straight answer from you
