  • Shyness is nice, and
    Shyness can stop you
    From doing all the things in life
    You'd like to

    Shyness is nice, and
    Shyness can stop you
    From doing all the things in life
    You'd like to

    So, if there's something you'd like to try
    If there's something you'd like to try
    Ask me - I won't say "no" - how could I?

    Coyness is nice, and
    Coyness can stop you
    From saying all the things in
    Life you'd like to

    So, if there's something you'd like to try
    If there's something you'd like to try
    Ask me - I won't say "no" - how could I?

    Spending warm summer days indoors
    Writing frightening verse
    To a buck-toothed girl in Luxembourg

    Ask me, ask me, ask me
    Ask me, ask me, ask me

    Because if it's not love
    Then it's the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb
    That will bring us together

    Nature is a language - can't you read?
    Nature is a language - can't you read?

    So...ask me, ask me, ask me
    Ask me, ask me, ask me

    Because if it's not love
    Then it's the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb
    That will bring us together

    If it's not love
    Then it's the bomb
    Then it's the bomb
    That will bring us together

    So...ask me, ask me, ask me
    Ask me, ask me, ask me
    Oh, la...
