I double dare you to sit over here.
I double dare you to lend me your ear.
Take off your high hat, and let's get friendly.
Don't be a 'scare-cat,' say what do you care? Can't you take a dare?
I double dare you to kiss me and then.
I double dare you to kiss me again.
And if that look in your eyes means what I'm thinkin' of.
I double dare you to fall in love with me,
I double dare you.
