Tell you nine times what I’m thinking
Say it nine times to your face
Hear it nine times and ignore it
I ain’t gonna’ say it again

Asked you nine times if you love me
Begged you nine times on my knees
Cried out nine times it’s the last time
You’ll ever hear it from me

Nine times nine is eighty one
Nine times I guess we had some fun
Nine times probably do it again
Nine times you wanna’ try for ten

Kissed you nine times on a Sunday
Held you nine times in my arms
Whispered nine times on that Monday
It shouldn’t be this hard

Left you nine times and I meant it
Called you nine times from the road
Broke down nine times and quit running
And that was nine years go
