Will Shirley ever notice Sam? Will they fall in love?

"Surely, Shirley" is an upbeat and sweet, catchy, love song.

If you're like me and have some word nerd in you, you will enjoy the homonyms, internal rhymes and expressions. And with the handy onscreen lyrics, you can sing along .

lyrics

SURELY, SHIRLEY ©M. Martin

He’s going crazy
slowly but surely and
Shirley’s the reason why
He wants to tell that girl
with the curls how he feels
oh but he’s way too shy

Surely Shirley, Surely Shirley
Surely Shirley will love him truly someday

He gets kind of swirly,
like a hurly burley
every time he sees her walk by
He can’t say a word
to that bird he adores
because his tongue is tied

Surely Shirley, Surely Shirley
Surely Shirley will love him truly someday

Instrumental break

He’s going crazy
slowly but surely and
Shirley’s the reason why
But maybe today he will say ”Hey, babe!”
and Shirley will stop and say “Hi”

Surely Shirley, Surely Shirley
Surely Shirley will love him truly someday repeat

Surely Shirley, Surely Shirley
