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 can make it

And I hope that I don't fall in love with you


Well, the night does funny things inside a man

These old tomcat feelings you don't understand

Well, I turn around to 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 company

Well, I turn around to look at you, and 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, the music's fading out

Last call for drinks, I'll have another stout

Well, I 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


– Tom Waits
