She Wrote My Name With A Pencil

(Steve Simpson)
A fun little song about a guy who doesn't have a clue!
I met a girl at the bowling alley Friday,
Bowling in the lane right next to mine,
And I could tell that it impressed her quite a bit,
When I nailed my all-time high of 59.

Well, I asked her ten times for her number,
Then I figured she must be a little deaf,
So I said my name in a loud manner ‘til she wrote it in her planner,
Then she got real excited and left.

Chorus
She wrote my name with a pencil,
Though I offered her my naked lady pen,
She wrote my name with a pencil,
And I’m sure I’ll be seeing her again,
Well, I’m sure I’ll be seeing her again.

I met a girl at the skating rink on Sunday,
Clinging to the rail right next to me,
I could feel our hearts attract when I landed on her back,
With the Pink Panther pads on my knees.

Well, I must be one heck of a teacher,
‘Cause it was all I could do to keep up,
But I followed her around ‘til she wrote my number down,
Then she played hide and seek, is that cute or what?

(Repeat Chorus)

I met a girl at the Dairy Queen on Tuesday,
Standing in line in front of me,
I could hear her heart rate climb when I bummed a dime,
For some sprinkles on my chili cheese.

She found a table and I sat down beside her,
But she was hyper, and we moved three times,
While everybody looked she finally wrote me in her book,
Then she dumped her food and left, but it tasted fine.

(Repeat Chorus)

I’m sure I’ll be seeing them, I’m sure I’ll be seeing them,
I’m sure I’ll be seeing them again.
