Lyrics

Got introduced to you by a friend
You were cute and all that
Baby you set the trend
Yes you did!
The next thing I know
We're down at the cinema
We're sitting there
You said you love me, what's that about?

You're moving too fast, don't understand you!
I'm not ready yet, baby I can't pretend
No I can't
Best I can do is tell you to talk to me
It's possible eventual love will find a way!

Don't say you love me
You don't even know me
If you really want me
Then give me some time
Don't go there baby
Not before I'm ready
Don't say your heart's in a hurry
It's not like we're gonna get married!
Give me, give me, some time!

Here's how to play, here's how I stand!
Here what's to prove to get any further then where it's been
I'll make it clear, not gonna tell you twice
Take it slow, quit pushing me, you're pushing me away! (Pushing me away!)

Don't say you love me
You don't even know me
If you really want me
Then give me some time (Give me some time!)
Don't go there baby
Not before I'm ready
Don't say your heart's in a hurry
It's not like we're gonna get married!
Give me, give me, some time!

(Oooooooooooh)
(Na na na na, na na na, na na na na, na na na)
(Oooooooooooh)
(Na na na na, na na na, na na na na, na na na!)

Don't say you love me
You don't even know me baby
Baby don't say you love me (Don't say you love me)
(You don't even know me) Baby, baby
(If you really want me)
(Then give me some time) Give me some time!

Don't say you love me
You don't even know me!
If you really want me
Then give me some time (Won't you give me some time?)
Don't go there baby
Not before I'm ready!
Don't say your heart's in a hurry! (It's no hurry!)
It's not like we're gonna get married
Give me, give me, some time

(Baby, don't!)
Don't say you love me
You don't even know me!
If you really want me
Then give me some time (Won't you give me some time?)
Don't go there baby
Not before I'm ready!
Don't say your heart's in a hurry
It's not like we're gonna get married!
Give me, give me, some time!

Don't say you love me
You don't even know me!
If you really want me
Then give me some time
Don't go there baby
Not before I'm ready

Alternate version

There are two versions of this song. In the version that appears in the movie, the line used before "what's that about?" is "you said you love me". In non-Pokémon contexts, the line is "you start kissin' me".

Music video

The music video for this song was used to promote the movie. The video takes place at a drive-in theater where the movie is being shown. Like the song, there are two different versions of this video. In the non-Pokémon version, the scenes from the movie are replaced by additional footage of M2M and the non-Pokémon version of the lyrics is used.
