Intro

Years of marriage
Not wedded bliss
Now I’m single
And wondering this
Have the rules changed?
What were they again?
Why do I feel new
To the dating game?

 

Verse 1

Meeting someone new
Sounds easy to do
But I have no idea
Where I would find you

In a bar or on a screen?
When you buy your morning caffeine
You might need to go drastic
What, like? Join the marines

Flirting is question two
How to say I like you
I haven’t been trained
For this hullabaloo

Play it coy and shy away
You should flirt without delay
Does she need to go drastic
Go on, become a cliche

 

Chorus

I don’t understand the rules
Of this dating game
So I’ll play by my own rules
f it’s all the same
I only have one rule
An it’s easy to do
Do whatever feels right
When it feels right to you

 

Verse 2

Next comes the first date
Being more than a mate
There is far too much
For me to contemplate

Where will you go? What will you wear?
Just be normal. No, add some flair
Does she need to go drastic?
Oh, let me Mohawk your hair

Next, the end of the night
You might be Mr Right
It’s time to make that choice
Standing in the starlight

Go with a peck on the cheek
Go with the kiss he’ll seek
She doesn’t need to go drastic
Go on, make his knees weak

 

Chorus

I don’t understand the rules
Of this dating game
So I’ll play by my own rules
f it’s all the same
I only have one rule
An it’s easy to do
Do whatever feels right
When it feels right to you
And I know, I’ll miss singing with you

 

Bridge

Share, but don’t over share
And don’t be too eager
Don’t admit to Facebook stalking
Or change your status either

Don’t call or text for three days
You’ve gotta play it cool
Wait at least three dates for nookie
Don’t make yourself nobody’s fool

 

Chorus

I don’t understand the rules
Of this dating game
So I’ll play by my own rules
f it’s all the same
I only have one rule
An it’s easy to do
Do whatever feels right
When it feels right to you
And I know, I’ll miss singing with you

You’ll know what’s right
When it feels right to you
