The chance I took so long to take
Can burn out just as sure
As ones I scooped up with both hands can shine.
All that time I took to wonder
Things I might find out . . . .
Best trust my ears and eyes.

Some guys you just tell yourself,
Aw—it’s one of them,
And some make you stop and say, Look—it’s him!
So I go for broke and get there—
Least I tried my best.
(Sometimes I’m right, I guess.)

Handsome and kind, handsome and kind.
He never says one thing that’s just what people say.
Handsome and kind, handsome and kind.
I know I’m supposed to like him.
I’m gonna like him anyway.

You might not know what train to catch
Or how to skip a stone.
I hear you’ve been known to wear stripes and plaid.
But din’t you dogsit twice for me?
And when it looked like rain
Took my chair inside in time.

Handsome and kind, handsome and kind,
Though you’d wish that weren’t the first thing people say.
Handsome and kind, handsome and kind.
I know I’m supposed to like you.
I’m gonna like you.
