One Upon A Mattress-Shy

This song is by Unknown Artist.

Someone's being bashful
That's no way to be
Not with me, can't you see
That I am just as embarrassed as you?
And I can understand your point of view
I've always been...

I confess it, I'm shy!
Can't you guess that this confident air
Is a mask that I wear
'Cause I'm shy?
And you may be sure
Way down deep I'm demure
Though some people I know might deny it
At bottom I'm quiet and pure!

I'm aware that it's wrong
To be meek as I am
My chances may pass me by
I pretend to be strong
But as weak as I am
All I can do is try

God knows I try
Though I'm frightened and shy
And despite the impression I give
I confess that I'm living a lie...
Because I'm actually terribly timid
And horribly shy...

Though a lady may be dripping with glamor
As often as not she'll stumble and stammer
When suddenly confronted with romance
And she's likely to fall on her face
When she's finally face to face
With a pair of pants

Quite often the lady's not
As hard to please as she seems
Quite often she'll settle for something less
Than the man of her dreams...

I'm going fishing for a mate!

She's going fishing for a mate!

I'm going to look in every brook!

She's going to look in every brook!

But how much longer must I wait
With baited breath and hook?

And that is why
Though I'm painfully shy
I'm insane to know which Sir...
You, sir?

Not I, sir!

Then who, sir?
Where, sir, and when, sir?
I couldn't be tenser
So let's get this done, man
Get on with the fun, man
I am one man...

The lady is one man...
