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, there's people everywhere
And I wonder should I offer you a chair?
Well if you sit down with this old clown I'll take that frown and break it
Before the evening's gone away I think that we could make it
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 company
Well now I've had two, I look at you and you look back at me
The guy you're with has up and split, the chair next to you's free
And I hope that you don't fall in love with me

And I hope that I don't fall in love with you
Well the night does funny things inside a man
These old Tom-cat feelings you dont understand
Well I turn around to look at you, you light a cigarette
I wish I had the guts to bum one but weve never met
And I hope that I dont fall in love with you

Now it's closing time, the music's fading out
Last call for drinks, I'll have another stout
Turn around to look at 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
