Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps

You won’t admit you love me
And so, how am I ever to know
You only tell me
Perhaps perhaps perhaps.

A million times I ask you, and then
I ask you over again
You only answer
Perhaps perhaps perhaps.

If you can’t make your mind up
We’ll never get started
And I don’t want to wind up
Being parted, broken hearted.

So if you really love me, say yes
But if you don’t dear, confess
And please don’t tell me
Perhaps perhaps perhaps.
