Once Bitten Twice Shy

This song is actually based on something that really happened to me when I was around 16. I did fall in love with a fellow, who told me he was going to marry me… but he ran off with a model who was living nearby, and I was crushed. I found out later that their marriage broke up, but in the meantime, it made me somewhat afraid about falling in love again…..”Once Bitten, Twice Shy.”

ONCE BITTEN TWICE SHY

When I was sweet sixteen, the boy next door fit all my dreams
He promised me a wedding ring, but he was gone before the Spring

Maybe you’re different from other men, see a sparkle in your smile
I can’t afford to get my heart broken, the way I feel, it’s been awhile

YOU’RE MOVIN’ TO CATCH MY EYE, I WATCH FROM THE SIDE
YOU SEEM LIKE A REAL NICE GUY, ONCE BITTEN TWICE SHY

I go inside to meet my friends, and there you are so cool dancin’
You’re all alone when they close the floor, I know cause one eye’s on the door

Maybe you’re different from other men, see a sparkle in your smile

YOU’RE MOVIN’ TO CATCH MY EYE, I WATCH FROM THE SIDE
YOU SEEM LIKE A REAL NICE GUY, ONCE BITTEN TWICE SHY

Bridge: When it’s real you just know, no easy come easy go,
Let’s just take it real nice and slow…..whoa

Maybe you’re different from other men, the way I feel it’s been awhile

YOU’RE MOVIN’ TO CATCH MY EYE, I WATCH FROM THE SIDE
YOU SEEM LIKE A REAL NICE GUY, ONCE BITTEN TWICE SHY
YOU’RE HAVIN’ A REAL GOOD TIME, A PARTY-LOVIN’ TYPE GUY
I’D LOVE TO GIVE YOU A TRY BUT, ONCE BITTEN TWICE SHY
