Yeah-yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I'd never met her type, she ignored me and that's alright
Never to be friends or my body lie on her floor
Her father works, her mother works in exports
But that's of no importance at all

I don't mind
I don't mind
Just to chase her, a fool's dream
I'm a hundred and four degrees with a head full of steam
All waiting's up, I'm on that team
That says go forward with a head full of steam

She plays hard to get along with, but she might drop by
She's never had a nickname, but then, nor have I

I don't mind
I don't mind
Just to chase her, a fool's dream
I'm a hundred and four degrees with a head full of steam
All waiting's up, I'm on that team
That says go forward with a head full of steam
Steam
Steam

Oh, I just want to know
I'd never met her type, she locked the door and the key
Opened the windows for the neighbors to see her climb on my knee

And to chase her, a fool's dream
I'm a hundred and four degrees with a head full of steam
All waiting's up, I'm on that team
That says go forward with a head full of steam
Hey, yeah

Go forward
Go forward now
Go forward
Go forward now
