Lyrics

Laurey:
Why do they think up stories that link my name with yours?

Curly:
Why do the neighbors gossip all day, behind their doors?

Laurey:
I know a way to prove what they say is quite untrue
Here is the gist, a practical list of "don't's" for you

Don't throw bouquets at me
Don't please my folks too much
Don't laugh at my jokes too much
People will say we're in love

Don't sigh and gaze at me
Your sighs are so like mine
Your eyes mustn't glow like mine
People will say we're in love

Don't start collecting things
Give me my rose and my glove

Sweetheart, they're suspecting things
People will say we're in love

Curly:
Some people claim that you are to blame, as much as I
Why do you take the trouble to bake my fav'rite pie?
Grantin' your wish, I carved our initials on that tree
Jus' keep a slice of all the advice ya give so free

Don't praise my charm too much
Don't look so vain with me
Don't stand in the rain with me
People will say we're in love

Don't take my arm too much
Don't keep your hand in mine
Your hand feels so grand in mine
People will say we're in love

Don't dance all night with me
'Til the stars fade from above
They'll see it's alright with me
People will say we're in love
