Hey girl
I couldn't help noticing you're all alone over there
Dark hair, dark eyes, head down, curled up
With a book, leaning back in your chair

And you're not looking up at anyone
Not even checking your phone
So as much as I'd like to introduce myself
I can tell you'd rather be alone

So I'll just
Keep it to myself
Keep me to myself
If you want to have a conversation
I'd be glad to get your invitation
'Til then I'll keep to myself

Hey girl
I'm wondering what you're reading and whether I've read it too
Is it dramatic or super philosophical
A challenging point of view
Biographical, educational
Or is it just boring you
'Cause you haven't smiled this entire while
Course, it's none of my business if you do
So I'll just

Keep it to myself
Keep me to myself
I'm sure you have a way to show me
If you ever want to get to know me
'Til then I'll keep to myself

Hey woman
I shouldn't call you girl
I didn't mean to patronize
Even though I didn't say it out loud
I sincerely apologize
I'm gonna take my mind off you now
Because it's really not fair
You should be able to
Sit in public view
With a book in front of you and
Not have some guy stare
