First, you have to get to know her.
Then, get her a present.
Don’t forget, girls like flowers.
Then tell her all about you
and then ask her,
“Do you want to be my girlfriend?”
If she says “No,” don’t say anything,
just walk away.
If she says “Yes,”
don’t act silly
because she may think you’re stupid
and leave you for another boy.
Don’t try to kiss her right away,
and don’t talk bad to her.
If you follow my instructions,
you may just get one.
