We thought that love was over
that we were really through
I said I didn't love him
that we'd begin anew
and you can all believe me
we sure intended to
but we just couldn't say good-bye

The chair and then the sofa
broke right down and cry
the curtains started waving for him to come inside
I tell you confidentially
the tears were hard to hide
and we just couldn't say good-bye

The clock was striking 12 o' clock
it smiled on us below
with folded hands it seemed to say
we're gonna miss you if you go

So he came back and kissed me
and when I looked around
the room was singing love songs
and dancing up and down
and now we are both so happy
because at last we found
that we just couldn't say good-bye

People in love are funny
mighty hard to explain
one minute they quarrel
then they're back together again

Take my case for instance
we had a little fuss
listen ladies and gentleman
Here's what happened to us

The clock was striking 12 o' clock
it smiled on us below
with folded hands it seemed to say
we're gonna miss you if you go

So he came back and kissed me
and when I looked around
the room was singing love songs
and dancing up and down
and now we are both so happy
because at last we found
that we just couldn't say good-bye
