Lyrics

His name was David Stein
he was her Valentine
or so she dreamed he'd be
if he would only see

She told her diary
that she'd cross the China Sea
to be with David Stein
how could she send a sign

that she was more than the girl next door
the one his mother wished he'd go for
She wanted to be the one who would never say no
that he could always count on to show love

The truth was that David Stein
was someone else's Valentine
He hung out with the prom queen
who was more than seventeen

But he knew she was alive
they were in class to learn to drive
One day after a parallel park
she felt a special spark

like she was more than the girl next door
the one his mother wished he'd go for
He knew she was one of those who would never say no
that he could always count on to show love

On her knees she felt she had won a prize
He said please, you know that you're the only one
It didn't sound like a lie

Then one day David Stein
took a step across the line
He whispered to the baseball team
that she was every guy's easy dream

And they all spread the word
that she goes right to third
David Stein went on his way
and she was all alone on Valentine's Day

More than the girl next door
not the one your mother wishes you'd go for
They all say that she’s the one who will never say no
that you can always count on to show love
