Songtekst:

It started way back in third grade
I used to sit beside Emmy Lou Hayes
A pink dress, a matching bow in her ponytail
She kissed me on the school bus, but told me not to tell
Next day I chased her around the playground
Across the monkey bars to the merry-go-round
And Emmy Lou got caught passing me a note, before the teacher took it, I read what she wrote:

Do you love me, do you wanna be my friend?
And if you do, well then don’t be afraid to take me by the hand, if you want to.
I think this is how love goes, check yes or no

Now we’re grown up and she’s my wife
Still like two kids with stars in our eyes
Ain’t much changed I still chase Emmy Lou
Up and down the hall, around the bed in our room
Last night I took her out in a white limousine
Twenty years together she still gets to me
Can’t believe it’s been that long ago
When we got started with just a little note

Do you love me, do you wanna be my friend?
And if you do, well then don’t be afraid to take me by the hand, if you want to.
I think this is how love goes, check yes or no.

Do you love me, do you wanna be my friend?
And if you do, well then don’t be afraid to take me by the hand, if you want to.
I think this is how love goes, check yes or no.

Check yes or no
Check yes or no
Check yes or no
