thank u in advance lyrics – boyz ii men

excuse me, i know we just met
but may i have this dance?

sitting here with a drink in my hand
your presence i can’t ignore
i must admit i like watching you dance
but it seems like i’ve seen this before

girl, you look like my first wife
who’d never been married before
so i kiss your hand and tell you, “thank you”
you turn and ask me, “what for?”

for our first kiss on next week
for when we made love in six weeks
for the ring you wore
proudly three months from now

for when you said, “i do”, next march
and for those beautiful children of ours
yes, i know it might sound strange ’cause we just met
but i thank you in advance

shawn, help me sing it
hi, my name is shawn
tell me your name although i know the last one
it’s funny that we’re shaking hands

wait a minute, i know this hand
it’s the same hand
i’ll hold in front of a minister
same hand
when you’re havin’ my son and his sister
i don’t mean to sound so bold and forward
but i thank you in advance

for our first kiss on next week
for when we made love in six weeks
for the ring you wore
proudly three months from now

for when you said, “i do”, next march
and for those beautiful children of ours
yes, i know it might sound strange ’cause we just met
but i thank you in advance

it’s like i came back to time to tell you, “thank you”
you’re as beautiful then as you are now
look in the mirror, there is a picture
of you and the man you love

for our first kiss on next week
for when we made love in six weeks
for the ring you wore
proudly three months from now

for when you said, “i do”, next march
and for those beautiful children of ours
yes, i know it might sound strange ’cause we just met
but i thank you in advance

for our first kiss on next week
for when we made love in six weeks
for the ring you wore
proudly three months from now

for when you said, “i do”, next march
and for those beautiful children of ours
yes, i know it might sound strange ’cause we just met
but i thank you in advance

i thank you in advance
oh, ooh ooh ooh
