Written By: sam west

Verse 1:
Thinkin about you goes and gets my head all twisted and that.
It's all so looped up that it's got me singin scat, (scat)
And If you got a question why, I'll tell you know the best that I.
It's your beautiful eyes, right back at mine oh mine.
Oh it's got me thinking strange cos we didn't even so much as kiss
One night that's right in the pool alcoholic sips, (margarita, cold beer, what you have deer)
If you got a question why, I'll tell you now the best that I.
It's your beautiful eyes, right back at mine oh mine.

Bridge:
1,2,3,4,5, I caught a fish alive.
6,7,8,9,10, I caught that fish,I seen, if she could

Chorus:
Dance, oh dance, would you dance with me.
Common dance, oh dance, with you beautiful eyes,
Right back at mine oh mine.

Verse 2:
We had a little jam there and now we're up to chapter two.
With my riffs and my rhymes, by now I should be you woooooooo!
I'll lay it out straight right now, I'm tranced it's because of how
Your beautiful eyes stare right back at mine oh mine.
Ive got a feeling that I can't explain,
It's a good so good it's almost pain,
And Ive got a stirrin in my soul, I think I'm gonna loose control
With your beautiful eye's, right back at mine oh mine.

Bridge:
Chorus x 2:
