Lyrics
SHE'LL SAY YES
(Papageorge)

There's a scent of apple blossom in the air tonight
I can hear the crickets chirping in the firefly light
And I'm prayin' to the Lord to help with all my might
That she'll say yes and marry me

I remember her eyes shining on the night that we first met
The way I felt with her was something I would not forget
I've heard of happy endings and I'll believe in them yet
If she'll say yes and marry me

Have I done all I can do to please her?
Is there something else I need to do or say?
Cause it means everything to have her by my side
Can't see living any other way

I wonder if the man upstairs is smiling down at me
I wonder if he's watching with a certain kind of glee
Does he know what she will answer when I'm on my knee
Will she say yes and marry me?

--Instrumental break--

Have I done all I can do to please her?
Or will she leave me hanging in mid-air?
Cause I've let her break through every wall inside of me
And found the love I have for her still there

The steps to her front door give that familiar creak
I can't let my voice choke up when it's time for me to speak
Dear Lord, don't let me fall even though my knees are weak
But now her eyes meet mine and I can see
She'll say yes and marry me
Now her eyes meet mine and I can truly see
She'll say yes and marry me
