I Hope That I Don't Fall in Love with You
Well, I hope that I don't fall in love with you
'Cause falling in love just makes me blue
Well, the music plays and you display your heart for me to see
I had a beer and now I hear you calling out for me
And I hope that I don't fall in love with you

Well, the room is crowded, people everywhere
And I wonder should I offer you a chair
Well, if you sit down with this old clown
Take that frown and break it
Before the evening's gone away
I think that we could make it
And I hope that you don't fall in love with me

Well, the night does funny things inside a man
These old tomcat feelings you don't understand
Well, I turn around and look at you
You light a cigarette
I wish I had the guts to bum one
But we've never met
And I hope that I don't fall in love with you

I can see that you are lonesome just like me
And it being late, you'd like some some company
Well, I turn around and look at you
You look back at me
The guy you're with, he's up and split
The chair next to you is free
And I hope that you don't fall in love with me

Now it's closing time
And the music's fading out
Last call for drinks
I'll have another stout
Well, I turn around to look for you
You're nowhere to be found
I search the place for your lost face
Guess I'll have another round
And I think that I just fell in love with you
