Ive made up my mind to something I'm just goin to keep on asking you for dates & if I get turned down I cant help it.
Im not going to quit just cause I got turned down the last time my motto is going to be "try! try again"
Ive got a notion to resign as president of the class I just took the job because you wanted me too and now that you turned me down I guess I will. Meet me outside this afternoon maybe if you'll have a talk with me I can get rid of some of my blues
If the reason you cant go with me is that your folks don't like me please tell me. cause if I know the real real honest & true reason I might not have quite so many blues.
There is just on emore thing I ask just let me have one little date just for a try out. Maybe I'm not the kind of a guy you think I am
Most Sincerely
J Falter
