You Beat Me to the Punch - Mary Wells/Tony Jackson and The Vibrations/The Temptations/Edwin Starr/Diane Pane/Charity Brown

    
You Beat Me to the Punch
That day, I first saw you passing by
I wanted, to ask your name but I was much too shy
But I was looking at you so hard
That you must have had a hunch
So you came up to me and asked me my name.

You beat me to the punch
That time
You beat me to the punch
Yes, you did.

After, I had known you for what seems like a long, long time,
I wanted, wanted to ask you, would you please, please be mine
Whenever you came around, my heart would pound
So you must have had a hunch.
So you came up to me and asked me to be yours.

You beat me to the punch
One more time
You beat me to the punch
Yes, you did.

Since I loved you
I thought you would be true
And love me tender
So I let my heart surrender
To you, yes, I did.
But I found out
Beyond a doubt
One day, boy
You were a playboy
Who would go away and leave me,
Blue.

So I ain't gonna wait around for you to put me down
This time I'm gonna play my hunch
And walk away this very day.
And beat you to the punch
Yes, I will
I'll beat you to the punch,
This time.
