Lyrics I Cain't Say No

It ain't so much a question of not knowin' what to do
I knowed what's right and wrong since I been ten
I heared a lot of stories and I reckon they are true
About how girls are put upon by men
I know I mustn't fall into the pit
But when I'm with a feller
I fergit
I'm just a girl who cain't say no
I'm in a terrible fix
I always say come on let's go just when I oughta say nix
When a person tries to kiss a girl
I know she oughta give his face a smack
But as soon as someone kisses me
I somehow sorta wanna kiss him back
I'm just a fool when lights are low
I cain't be prissy and quaint
I ain't the type that can faint
How can I be what I ain't?
I cain't say no
Whatcha gonna do when a feller gets flirty
And starts to talk purty whatcha gonna do?
Supposin' that he says that your lips are like cherries
Or roses or berries? whatcha gonna do?
Supposin' that he says that yer sweeter and cream
And he's gotta have cream or die?
Whatcha gonna do when he talks that way? spit in his eye?
I'm just a girl who cain't say no cain't seem to say it at all
I hate to disserpoint a beau when he is payin' a call
Fer a while I ack refined and cool
A settin' on the velveteen setee
Nen I think of that ol' golden Rule
And do fer him what he would do fer me
I cain't resist a Romeo in a sombrero and chaps
As soon as I sit on their laps somethin' inside of me snaps
I cain't say no
