May I? lyrics

I just came in off the street
Looking for somewhere to eat
I find a small cafe
I see a girl and then I say

'May I sit and stare at you for a while?
I'd like the company of your smile'

You don't have to say a thing
You're the song without the sing
The sunlight in your hair
You look so good just sitting there

'May I sit and stare at you for a while?
I'd like the company of your smile'
