Royal Shyness

Author: Charlie Crane
i met a girl by a pinball game
she blushes when you say her name
and she was dressed from head to toe in grey
i thought i'd try and catch her eye
but she just avoids my glance and sighs
you know it's hard to court someone so shy

a girl so fine and fair
face covered by her hair
i have plans of being loyal
i do believe she's royal

oh my good lady
i bow down on one knee for you
don't think i'm crazy
your subject now is being true
your royal shyness
i boldly bow before your grace
your humble servant
wants you to come back to his place

i'll sit by her and i'll make small talk
i'll watch her but try not to stalk
hope my sudden attention will not shock
i'll be polite, oh i'll be so kind
i'll drop a hint that i've taken a shine
god save the queen repeating in my mind

a girl pale and demure
i think i've found a cure
i think her purity
can beat insecurity

oh my good lady
i bow down on one knee for you
don't think i'm crazy
your subject now is being true
your royal shyness
i boldly bow before your grace
your humble servant
wants you to come back to his place

she doesn't want to dance
she doesn't want to walk
and now that i've come up to her
she doesn't want to talk
and so i must break through her shell
and i can not back down
i'll honor and present her with a crown

oh my good lady
i bow down on one knee for you
don't think i'm crazy
your subject now is being true
your royal shyness
i boldly bow before your grace
your humble servant
wants you to come back to his place
