    Get It Right The First Time

    I don't believe in first impressions
    For just this once I hope that looks don't deceive
    I ain't got time for true confessions
    I've got to make the move right now
    Got to meet that girl somehow

    I've gotta get it right the first time
    That's the main thing
    I can't afford to let it pass
    You get it right the next time that's not the same thing
    Gonna have to make the first time last.

    I'm not much good at conversation
    I never was too smooth at comin' on real strong
    If all it takes is inspiration
    Then I might have just what it takes
    If I don't make no bad mistakes and I

    I've gotta get it right the first time
    That's the main thing
    I can't afford to let it pass
    You get it right the next time that's not the same thing
    Gonna have to make the first time last.

    I might find the courage
    Yeah I might get up the nerve
    But if my timing ain't just right what purpose would it serve?
    I don't know, I don't know, I don't know how
    To say those first few words

    If I want to put myself in touch
    The first few moments mean so much
    So I suppose it's now or never
    Before that woman walks right out of my life
    Just let me pull myself together
    I've got to give it one good try
    Gotta take my chance tonight

    I've gotta get it right the first time
    That's the main thing
    I can't afford to let it pass
    You get it right the next time that's not the same thing
    Gonna have to make the first time last.
