Let’s not say I love you
Let’s not get poetic and gush
Let’s not swear to be true
Don’t give me that mush
Let’s be moody and mysterious
No pet names and if you’re serious
Cut the bill and coo
Let’s not say I love you

Let’s not be so polite
Let’s not feel we have to play nice
Let’s not hold back the spite
Live life on thin ice
Let’s be cagey and contemptuous
Keep romance rough and tempestuous
Give me a good fight
Let’s not be so polite

Don’t write me cheques that your heart cannot cash
Or promise tomorrow, it’s gone in a flash
Let’s live for today
And don’t let minor infidelities get in the way

Let’s not share everything
Let’s not feel we have to combine
Let’s not cosset or cling
What’s yours isn’t mine
Let’s be vague about our history
Hide your exes, keep some mystery
Let’s do our own thing
Let’s not share everything


Let’s be carefree, unconventional
My love is not two dimensional
Just enjoy the fling
I don’t need no ring
I’m praying to God above
Let’s not fit hand in glove
Take a rifle and shoot that turtle dove
And baby, let’s not fall in love
