Can We Talk Lyrics

Verse 1

Last night I, I saw you standing
And I started, started pretending
That I knew you, and you knew me, too
And just like a Roni, you were too shy
But you weren’t the only ’cause so was I
And I dreamed of you ever since
Now I build up my confidence
Girl, next, next time you come my way
I’ll know just what to say

Chorus

Can we talk for a minute?
Girl, I want to know your name
Can we talk for a minute?
Girl, I want to know your name

Verse 2

I started to write you letters
But I wanted to be more clever
I wanted to get down and sweet talk you
Hey, baby
But just like a baby, I could not talk
And I tried to come closer, but could not walk
And I think of it every night
How I just could not get it right, oh
If we ever come close again
I’ll know what I’ll say then, yeah

Chorus

Can we talk for a minute?
Girl, I want to know your name
Can we talk for a minute?
Girl, I want to know your name

Bridge

Oh, girl
One more chance with you again
I will not let it go!
Oh, please give me just one more chance for love, love, love, love

Chorus

Can we talk for a minute?
Girl, I want to know your name
Can we talk for a minute?
Girl, I want to know your name
Can we talk?
I wanna talk to my baby
Come on and talk to me, baby
Girl, I want to know your name
Can we talk for a minute?
Girl, I want to know your name
Can we talk?
Come on and talk to me, baby
See, I wanna know
You better tell me your name, baby
Can we talk for a minute?
I wanna know, I wanna know
I want to know your name
Can we talk for a minute?
