"I'M ALREADY TAKEN"
by: Steve Wariner
songwriters: Steve Wariner & Terry Ryan

My little third grade hand wrote
"I love you" on a note of yellow paper,
and sent it to the front of the room
to a little blonde-haired girl.

The blonde-haired girl just opened it, and
read it to herself, I was so embarrassed
when she turned around and said:

I'm already taken
you spoke up to late
I love somebody else,
so you'll just have to wait

the years flew by so quickly
and there we were in junior high
I realized that I still loved her so.
So I called her up and told her -
exactly how I felt

Then she said:
There's something that
you really ought to know:

I'm already taken
you spoke up to late
I love somebody else,
so you'll just have to wait

So wait I did, and never
changed my love for that little
blonde-haired girl- who's now the
mother of our little blonde-haired boy
- who's to our hearts so close
I hate to think how fast he's growing up.

Last night I overheard them
as she tucked him into bed
He said: mommy, will you marry me?

And this is what she said:
I'm already taken
you spoke up to late
I love your daddy, son,
so you'll just have to wait.

I'm already taken
you spoke up to late
I love your daddy, son,
so you'll just have to wait...
