    It's like a tap-dance
    or a new pink dress,
    a shit- naive feeling
    Saying Yes.

    Some say Good morning
    Some say God bless--
    Some say Possibly
    Some say Yes.


    Some say Never
    Some say Unless
    It's stupid and lovely
    To rush into Yes.

    What can it mean?
    It's just like life,
    One thing to you
    One to your wife.

    Some go local
    Some go express
    Some can't wait
    To answer Yes.

    Some complain
    Of strain and stress
    The answer may be
    No for Yes.

    Some like failure
    Some like Success
    Some like Yes Yes
    Yes Yes Yes.

    Open your eyes,
    Dream but dont guess.
    Your biggest surprise
    Comes after Yes.
