Shall I tell her you're not here
Shall I tell her?
Shall I tell her you're not here
Shall I tell her you're not, you're not here?

[Incomprehensible] calling on the phone
Wants to know if I'm alone
Shall I tell her that I'm holding you
Doing all the things I've longed to do
Or shall I, shall I tell her you're not here?

Shall I tell her you're not here
Shall I tell her?
Shall I tell her you're not here
Shall I tell her?

She's asking me if you dropped by
But it's so hard for me to lie
If I tell the truth I'll lose a friend
I would hate to see our friendship end
So shall I, shall I tell her you're not here?

Shall I tell her you're not here
Shall I tell her?
Shall I tell her you're not here
Shall I tell her?

Oh, time will ease the pain, and she'll soon forget
Then she'll fall in love again, forget we ever met

[Incomprehensible] a gonna cry I know
Because she really loves you so
Shall I send you back into her arms
Spend my life just dreaming of your charms
Or shall I, shall I tell her you're not here?

Shall I tell her you're not here
Shall I tell her?
Shall I tell her you're not here
Shall I tell her you're not, you're not here?

Shall I tell her you're not here
Shall I tell her?
