Margarita (Great Big Sea)

I see you in the front row, dancing up and down,
You're ripped and ready for a night downtown;
And all the pretty boys are chasing you around,
'Cause they all want to win your affection.

And you spent three hours
getting ready for the show,
Nothing on underneath and everybody knows;
Mama said to wear a coat,
you'll catch your death of cold,
What's wrong with a little flirtation?

And then you smile at me,
Is that a wink I see?
Did I catch your eye?
Should I even try?

Oh, my Margarita, (Margarita)
I'd like to meet ya; (Margarita)
Margarita, (Margarita)
I think I need ya. (Margarita)

Take your time and dance real slow,
Remember that song from the radio?
Got your old man's car, got a place to go,
'Cause we all need a little temptation.

Those two big fellas, looking for a fight,
It's what they like to do on a Saturday night;
Maybe it's the alcohol, maybe it's the lights,
They just want to get your attention.

And then you smile at me,
Is that a wink I see?
Did I catch your eye?
Should I even try?

Oh, my Margarita, (Margarita)
I'd like to meet ya; (Margarita)
Margarita, (Margarita)
I think I need ya. (Margarita)

Talk to me, baby, it's all right,
I might look strange, but I don't bite;
And if you let me hold your hand,
I can find a way to make you understand...

Called last call, now it's time to go,
But I'm not the guy who gets to walk you home;
We could have made history,
I guess we'll never know,
I'll see you in my dreams.....

Oh, my Margarita, (Margarita)
I'd like to meet ya; (Margarita)
Margarita, (Margarita)
I think I need ya. (Margarita)

Oh, my Margarita, (Margarita)
I'd like to meet ya; (Margarita)
Margarita, (Margarita)
I think I need ya. (Margarita)
