I’m shaking in my boots
Lord I gotta do better
All I’m thinking’s really what’s the use
In talking work and the weather
And trying to seem cool
In a cable knit sweater?
She’s gonna dig it or she’ll cut me loose
What did I say that upset her?

You keep your chin up kid
You let them know that you’re a winner
You gotta tell it like it is
You gotta earn it like a sinner
You gotta earn it with your heart
You’re not a beginner, no
And when you feel it like you feel your art
That’s when you know you’re gonna win her

It’s time to ante up
Time to ante up
Time to ante up
Time to ante up
Time to move

I love the things that you say
The impossible way that you move
I even dig the way you push away
I gotta say I’ve got a lot to lose
And if there’s any chance that you’ll stay
I’ve got a lot I wanna say to you

It’s time to ante up
Time to ante up
Time to ante up
Time to ante up
Time to move
