There’s something about the way she moves
That makes me feel like a fool
For thinking I would have nothing to lose
Trying to be the coolest cool
I want to walk right up and seize the day
But that’s not a thing I could do
Unless I had the perfect thing to say
And make all my dreams come true
But knowing just what to say will require a little help
Some people call it “liquid courage”
I call it “drinkin’ up the nerve”
That way, I don’t have to worry
Makes me know I’m ahead of the curve
So no need to be in such a hurry
I’ll just be drinkin’ up the nerve
One drink down; still no speech
Another gone; can I now be clear?
Three down, it’s still beyond my reach
Maybe need a few bottles of beer
You know, on second thought
I’d better come back tomorrow
Yes, tonight I’m just gonna keep on
Drinkin’ up the nerve
