  • Tongue-tied or short of breath, don't even try
    Try a little harder
    Something's wrong, you're not naive, you must must be strong
    Ooh, baby, try

    Hey girl
    Move a little closer

    You're too shy shy, hush-hush, eye to eye
    Too shy shy, hush-hush, eye to eye
    Too shy shy, hush-hush, eye to eye
    Too shy shy, hush-hush

    Modern medicine falls short of your complaint
    Ooh, try a little harder
    You're moving in circles, won't you dilate?
    Ooh, baby try

    Hey girl
    Move a little closer

    You're too shy shy, hush-hush, eye to eye
    Too shy shy, hush-hush, eye to eye
    Too shy shy, hush-hush, eye to eye
    Too shy shy, hush-hush

    You're too shy shy, hush-hush, eye to eye
    Too shy shy, hush-hush, eye to eye
    Too shy shy, hush-hush, eye to eye
    Too shy shy, hush-hush
    You're too shy shy, hush-hush, eye to eye
    Too shy shy, hush-hush, eye to eye
    Too shy shy, hush-hush, eye to eye
    Too shy shy, hush-hush
    Too shy shy, hush-hush, eye to eye
    Too shy shy, hush-hush, eye to eye
    Too shy shy, hush-hush, eye to eye Writer/s: Christopher Hamill, Jeremy Strode, Nick Beggs, Stephen Askew, Stuart John Neale

  • Josh from Champaign, IlI would call this more of a bass driven song really. Such a unique use of the instrument that underlies so much of the signature sound!
  • George from Vancouver, CanadaIt's pretty crappy that the band made this song, but Limahl gets all the credit in Google lyrics searches. . .
  • Michael from Modesto, CaAs I understand it, the original band performed live for the 2010 UK Rewind festival, which I saw on the Palladia cable channel. I only vaguely recalled the song from living through the 80's but they did a fantastic live version for the festival. The bass-line is fantastic and ageless. Good job, Nick.
