First Date
Blink 182

 

Intro:

C  D  F  G

 

C

In the car I just can't wait,

G                              F

to pick you up on our very first date

C

Is it cool if I hold your hand?

G                     F

Is it wrong if I think it's lame to dance?

C

Do you like my stupid hair?

G                                   F

Would you guess that I didn't know what to wear?

C

I'm too scared of what you think

G                                        F

You make me nervous so I really can't eat

 

CHORUS:

C         C/B          Am                F        G

Let's go, don't wait, this night's almost over

C          C/B           Am         F     G

Honest, let's make this night last forever

C         C/B           Am                 F    G

Forever and ever, let's make this last forever

C         C/B           Am                 F    G

Forever and ever, let's make this last forever

 

C  D  F  G x2

 

C

When you smile, I melt inside

G                            F

I'm not worthy for a minute of your time

C

I really wish it was only me and you

G                            F

I'm jealous of everybody in the room

C

Please don't look at me with those eyes

G                                        F

Please don't hint that you're capable of lies

C

I dread the thought of our very first kiss

G                        F

A target that I'm probably gonna miss

 

Chorus
