Lyrics PLEASE SEND
YOUR CARDS OF SYMPATHY
ELSEWHERE,
(spoken) IT'S NOT THE END
OF LOVE --
(sung) JUST ONE AFFAIR!

I'D DO IT AGAIN,
I'D DO IT AGAIN!
IF LOVE SHOULD APPEAR
IT IS ONLY TOO CLEAR --
I'D PURSUE IT AGAIN,
AND RUE IT;
BUT THEN...
I'D DO IT AGAIN!
I'D DO IT AGAIN,
I'D DO IT AGAIN!
IF LOVE SHOULD
COME NOW,
I WOULD BREAK
EV'RY VOW,
I'D DENY IT
AGAIN,
DEFY IT,
AND THEN...
I'D TRY IT
AGAIN!

FOR THO'
I TELL MYSELF
I'VE FOUND THE CURE,
AND KNOW
THAT I'VE BEEN WEAK
AND IMMATURE,
AND STATE
MY FIRM BELIEF
THAT I AM GLAD
THAT LOVE IS BRIEF
AND WHEN IT ENDS
IT'S A RELIEF --
YOU CAN BE SURE...

I'D DO IT AGAIN,
GO THROUGH IT AGAIN!
ALTHOUGH I INSIST
THAT NEXT TIME
I'LL RESIST,
I'D SUBDUE IT;
BUT THEN...
I'D DO IT AGAIN!
THAT'S ALL
THERE IS TO IT.
WHY TRY TO
POOH POOH IT?
I'D DO IT AGAIN!
