MELISSA

Written by: Jim Senderhauf
=============================

I knew that girls adored me, when I was just 15.
They called me Pretty Boy, I was a sex machine.
There was a girl in shop class, She sat across from me.
Her name was Melissa, sometimes she'd look at me... Melissa.

Melissa, won't you please... sit by me
Melissa, won't you please - take - my
Gumball machine that I made for you
If you don't, I know I'll die... Melissa.

As the winter slowly slipped by
At the sander and the lathe
Oh sweet, sweet... sweet Melissa
Her heart began to cave... Melissa.

Springtime came, That was my chance.
To ask Melissa to the dance...
When it ended, then she'd see.
Her dream was only me... Melissa

Melissa, won't you please take me home tonight?
Take me inside, no, I won't bite.
I know your mama's home, your daddy too.
I just want, I just want you - Melissa...

That night slipped by without... a word.
I lost my spine and... my nerve.
I will always regret... That day we never met...
Cause I could not say these words to you...

Melissa, won't you please take me home tonight?
Take me inside, no, I won't bite.
I know your mama's home, your daddy too.
I just want, I just want you - Melissa...
