    It ain't so much a question of not knowin' whut to do
    I knowed what's right an' wrong since I've been teen.
    I heared a lot of stories an' I reckon they're true
    About how girls are put upon by men.
    I know I mustn't fall into the pit
    But when I'm with a feller
    I fergit!

    I'm just a girl who cain't say 'no'
    I'm in a terrible fix!
    I always say 'Come on, let's go' just when I aughta say 'Nix.'
    When a person tries to kiss a girl
    I know she oughta give his face a smack!
    But as soon as someone kisses me
    I somehow sorta want to kiss him back!
    I'm just a fool when lights are low
    I cain't be prissy an' quaint
    I ain't the type that can faint
    How can I be what I ain't?
    I cain't say 'no!'

    Whatcha gonna do when a feller gets flirty
    An' starts to talk purty
    Whatcha gonna do?
    S'pposin' that he says
    That your lips are like cherrys,
    Or roses, or berries
    Whatcha gonna do?
    S'pposin' that he says
    That yer sweeter than cream
    and he's gotta have cream or die?
    Whatcha gonna do when he talks that way?
    Spit in his eye?

    I'm jist a girl who cain't say no,
    Cain't seem to say it at all
    I hate to disserpoint a beau
    When he is payin' a call!
    Fer a while I ack refined and cool,
    A settin on the velveteen setee
    Nen I think of thet ol' golden rule,
    And do fer him what he would do fer me!
    I cain't resist a Romeo
    In a sombrero and chaps
    Soon as I sit on their laps
    Somethin' inside of me snaps
    I cain't say no!

    I'm jist a girl who cain't say 'no'
    Kissin's my favorite food!
    With or without the mistletoe
    I'm in a holiday mood!
    Other girls are coy an' hard to catch
    But other girls ain't havin' any fun!
    Ev'ry time I lose a wrastlin' match
    I have a funny feelin' that I won!
    Though I can feel the undertoe
    I never make a complaint
    'Till it's too late for restraint
    Then when I want to I cain't
    I cain't say 'no!'
