Lyrics

You say you love him, but I don't know
He doesn't fulfill your every goal
Too fat, too thin, not a lot on top
Can't show him to mom or pop

He wants to marry you, but you say no
He's romantic, but not for show
Your checking out his every trait.
Will he, or won't he, be the perfect mate
You've got your “checklist”, oh yeah
Looking at that “checklist, oh yeah

('Cause) not enough of the list applies to him
Can't fall in love, no, can't marry him
Can't take a chance, don't want to hit or miss
You're taking your shot at instant wedding bliss

Oh, with that “checklist”, (I said) Oh, yeah
You've got your “checklist”, oh yeah

His educations not quite up to par
He spends too much time hanging around the bar
He has lots of friends, but some can't win
Your friends will wonder what you see in him

He's kind and gentle, but his wallets not fat
Your best friend insists “he's gotta have that”
He's good with kids and he'll love you forever
but that's not enough says the local newspaper
or, your 'checklist”, oh yeah
You've got your “checklist”, oh yeah

('Cause) not enough of the list applies to him
Can't fall in love, no, can't marry him
Can't take a chance, don't want to hit or miss
You're taking your shot at instant wedding bliss

Oh, with that “checklist”, (I said) Oh, yeah
You've got your “checklist”, oh yeah

(You know), time's running out as the years fly by
“Checklist” turns yellow, shrivels and dies
Another night at home, turn on the T.V.
Staring out the window, feeling lonely

With your “checklist”, (I said), oh yeah
You had a “checklist”, oh yeah
A foolish “checklist”, oh yeah
Can't hug that “checklist”, oh yeah
Can't kiss that “checklist, oh yeah
Can't love that “checklist”, oh yeah, yeah, yeah...
THAT DARN CHECKLIST!
