Melanie… what can the problem be?
Sweet Melanie… why won’t you go out with me?

She lived across the street on the fifteenth floor of the Gailmore building
I saw her in the shower reaching for some soap
I knew she had to be the girl for me and to think I probably never would have found her
If I hadn’t bought that telescope

Oh, Melanie… what can the problem be?
Sweet Melanie… why won’t you go out with me?

I just can’t understand it, why won’t you return my phone calls?
Are you still mad I gave a mohawk to your cat?
If you’d just say the word I’m certain that our love would last forever and ever
Or are you too dumb to realize that?

Melanie… what can the problem be?
Sweet Melanie… why won’t you go out with me?

How can you ignore me when you know that I can’t live without you?
I have to go through your garbage just to learn more about you
Melanie
Oh sweet Melanie… why won’t you go out with me?

You weren’t impressed when I tattooed your name across my forehead
You wouldn’t listen when I promised to be true
I couldn’t stand it so I jumped out from the sixteenth story window right above you
Now I may be dead but I still love you

Melanie… what can the problem be?
Sweet Melanie… why won’t you go out with me?

Melanie… what can the problem be?
Sweet Melanie… why won’t you go out with me?

I’m singin' Melanie… what can the problem be?
Sweet, sweet Melanie… why won’t you go out with me?

I’m singin' Melanie… what can the problem be?
Sweet Melanie… Why won’t you go out with me?

I’m singin' Melanie… what can the problem be?
Sweet Melanie… Why won’t you go out with me?
