Cathy with the curly hair lyrics

Do you still remember Cathy with the curly hair?
Yeah, but I've been waiting for a return of a greetcard
"Take me away from here"
We met in December when you got snow in
Talked for twelve-fifteen hours,
I don't know where to begin
But if you'd ask me, I wouldn't care
And if you'd met me, I'd be there
But if you'd let me, I wouldn't dare
But if you'd let me, uuh uuh uhh uhh

We talked to get on Valentine's day
But you stayed away, oh
Know that you were right
And I know that you were also way behind those blue eyes,
and that long blonde hair
Oh, yeah you ???
And you told me everything I wanted to hear
But if you'd ask me, I wouldn't care
And if you'd met me, I'd be there
But if you'd let me, I wouldn't dare
But if you'd let me, uuh uuh uhh uhh

You took the bus in LA with the a buck in your back pocket
It took you a while just to say Hi, so I asked
Do you still remember Cathy with the curly hair?
Yeah, but I've been waiting for a return of a greetcard
"Take me away from here"
But if you'd ask me, I wouldn't care
And if you'd met me, I'd be there
But if you'd let me, no, I wouldn't dare
But if you'd let me, uuh uuh uhh uhh
