Verse 1:
W[B]ishin' and h[F#]opin' and th[E]inkin' and p[F#]rayin'
P[B]lannin' and d[F#]reamin' each n[E]ight of his charms
F# [N.C.]
That won't get you into his arms
So if you're l[Ebm]ookin' to find love [Eb]you can s[Abm]hare
Em/G [N.C.]
All you gotta do is
H[B]old him and k[F#]iss him and l[E]ove him
And s[F#]how him that you c[B]are[E] [B]
[2: You gotta] Show him that you c[F#]are just for him
Do the th[B]ings [E]he likes to [B]do
Wear your h[F#]air just for him, 'cause
(D#m) [N.C. - bass alternates D# and A#]
You won't get him
Thinkin' and a-prayin'
Wishin' and a-hopin'
Verse 2:
Just wishin' and hopin' and thinkin' and prayin'
Plannin' and dreamin' his kiss is the start
That won't get you into his heart
So if you're lookin' to find love you can share
All you gotta do is
H[B]old him and k[F#]iss him and squ[E]eeze him and l[F#]ove him
Yeah, just [B]do it and [F#]after you [E]do, you w[F#]ill be h[B]is[E] [B]
