When you asked me out and I turned you down,
Never thought that'd stop you from askin' now
Why'd you go and give up so easily?
I thought you'd see...

[Chorus]
When I say no I mean maybe
Baby don't you know me yet?
Nothin's worth havin' if it ain't a little hard to get
So let me clarify so you won't have to try to guess
When I say no I mean maybe, or maybe I mean yes

Ever since woman has talked to man, Every man's been tryin'
to understand. What's the harm in a little mystery?
That's how it should be

[Chorus]

It seems like a crazy way to be,
But it makes perfect sense to me

[Chorus]
