You Beat Me To The Punch

Lyrics

One day I first saw you on passing by,
I wanted to know your name but I was much too shy.
I was looking at you so hard until you must have had a hunch,
So you came up to me and asked me my name.

Mary Wells beat everyone to the punch with this hit. It was unfortunate Diana Ross took her crown as Motown's biggest female star.
