Lyrics verse: male:
THO IT'S A FICKLE AGE
WITH FLIRTING
ALL THE RAGE,
HERE IS ONE BIRD
WITH SELF-CONTROL
HAPPY INSIDE MY CAGE.
I KNOW I LOVE BEST,
THUMBS DOWN
FOR ALL THE REST,
MY LOVE WAS GIVEN,
HEART AND SOUL
SO IT CAN
STAND THE TEST.

female:
YOUR TYPE OF MAN
IS RARE,
I KNOW YOU
REALLY CARE,
THAT'S WHY
MY CONSCIENCE
NEVER SLEEPS
WHEN YOU'RE AWAY
SOMEWHERE.
SURE WAS A LUCKY DAY,
WHEN FATE SENT YOU
MY WAY,
AND MADE YOU
MINE ALONE
FOR KEEPS,
DITTO TO ALL
YOU SAY.

Chorus:
NO ONE TO TALK WITH,
ALL BY MYSELF,
NO ONE TO WALK WITH,
BUT I'M HAPPY
ON THE SHELF,
AIN'T MISBEHAVIN',
I'M SAVIN'
MY LOVE FOR YOU.
I KNOW FOR CERTAIN
THE ONE I LOVE,
I'M THRU WITH FLIRTIN',
IT'S JUST YOU
I'M THINKIN' OF,
AIN'T MISBEHAVIN',
I'M SAVIN'
MY LOVE FOR YOU.

LIKE JACK HORNER
IN THE CORNER,
DON'T GO NOWHERE,
WHAT DO I CARE,
YOUR KISSES
ARE WORTH WAITIN' FOR,
BELIEVE ME.

I DON'T STAY OUT LATE,
DON'T CARE TO GO,
I'M HOME ABOUT EIGHT,
JUST ME AND MY RADIO,
AIN'T MISBEHAVIN,
I'M SAVIN'
MY LOVE FOR YOU.

Lyrics verse:
SOMETHING MUST HAVE HAPPENED
TO MY HEART JUST NOW,
SUDDENLY,
MY LIFE'S COMPLETE.
AND YOU BECAME
THE MOST IMPORTANT PART
JUST NOW
I KNOW
AND YOU KNOW,
WE TWO KNOW.

Chorus:
THIS IS IT,
MY GREAT ROMANCE,
I WANT TO HANG ON
TO THIS ONE BIG CHANCE.
YOU'RE MINE,
MY LONELINESS DIES,
I FEEL FINE
WITH STARS IN MY EYES.
OH, IT BUILDS ME UP
TO SUCH A HEIGHT
TO KNOW
THIS IS SO VERY REAL
AND RIGHT,
AND I THOUGHT LOVE
PASSED ME BY.
BUT I MUST ADMIT
THIS IS IT!

Lyrics THIS NIGHT HAS MUSIC,
THE SWEETEST MUSIC,
IT ECHOES SOMETHING
WITHIN MY HEART.
I HOLD YOU
NEAR ME,
OH DARLING,
HEAR ME,
I HAVE A MESSAGE
I MUST IMPART.
THE CLOAK OF EVENING
IS WRAPPED AROUND US,
THERE IS A SPELLING
IN ITS MYSTIC BLUE.
THIS WONDROUS EVENING,
THE MOON HAS FOUND US,
IT HEARS ME
OFFER MY ALL
TO YOU:

YOURS
TILL THE STARS
LOSE THEIR GLORY,
YOURS
TILL THE BIRDS
FAIL TO SING.
YOURS
TO THE END
OF LIFE'S STORY,
THIS PLEDGE
TO YOU, DEAR,
I BRING.
YOURS
IN THE GRAY
OF DECEMBER,
HERE
OR ON FAR
DISTANT SHORES
I'VE NEVER
LOVED ANYONE
THE WAY
I LOVE YOU.
HOW COULD I?
WHEN I WAS BORN
TO BE
JUST YOURS.

Spanish Lyric
QUIEREME MUCHO,
DULCE AMOR MIO,
QUE AMANTE SIEMPRE
TE ADORARE!
YO CONTUS BESOS,
CONTUS CARICIAS,
MIS SUFRIMIENTOS
ACALLARE.

CUANDO
SE QUIERE DEVERAS!
COMO
TO QUIERO YO
A TI!
ES IMPOSIBLE
ME CIELO,
TAN SEPARADOS
VI VIR!
CUANDO
SE QUIERE
DEVERAS
COMO
TO QUIERO
YO A TI!
ES IMPOSIBLE
MI CIELO
TAN SEPARADOS
VI VAR?
TAN SEPARDOS
VI VIR.
