Orleans Tongue Tied

Well, I might not be able to say it out loud

I been watching you from across the crowd, baby

Just as soon as I get the chance

I’ll happen to be there when you want to dance

Got to tell you how I feel

Words won’t say it but my body will

I get so shy when I’m standing still

I get tongue tied when I have to speak

I said, I get tongue tied, I can’t move my feet

Well, some other guys might hand you a line

If you like sweet talk I guess that, that’s fine

I won’t deceive you with grandiose plans

I put it to you, you’ll know I’m your man

Got to tell you how I feel

Words won’t say it but my body will

I get so shy when I’m standing still

I get tongue tied when I have to speak

I said that I get tongue tied, I can’t move my feet

Tell me why it should be

That you have this effect on me

Why should I be shy with you?

I guess body English will just have to do

Some people sit and talk for days

They say funky music’s a passing craze

Once we start to shake it on out

We’ll give them something to talk about, yeah

Got to tell you how I feel

Words won’t say it but my body will

I get so shy when I’m standing still

I get tongue tied when I have to speak

I said that I get tongue tied, I can’t move my feet

Tongue tied when I have to speak

Baby, baby, baby

I get tongue tied and I can’t move my feet
