Elaine Stritch – I Never Know When To Say When lyrics

I knew on the day I met him he wasn't the man for me
I knew I should just forget him, but I had to wait and see

Oh, I've been sad before
And I've been had before
But, oh, my friend, I won't pretend, it was as bad before
I should have told my heart to stop and count ten
But then I never know when to say when

I know my way around
I never play around
Each time I fall I bet my all
He's gonna stay around
It seems that everything is rosy and then
Somehow I never know when to say when

But now I've learned my lesson
And it's an easy one
If I could keep them guessing' (You've got to keep 'em guessin')
Keep it fun, kiss and run

The skies are stormy now
My dreams all bore me now
No candle lights the lonely nights that lie before me now
I say it's done, it's done, it's over – Amen!
But then again, and again, and again
I find I never know when, I never know when to say when

But now I've learned my lesson
And it's an easy one
If I could keep them guessing' (You've got to keep 'em guessin')
Keep it fun, kiss and run

The skies are stormy now
My dreams all bore me now
No candle lights the lonely nights that lie before me now
I say it's done, it's done, it's over – Amen!
But then again, and again, and again
I find I never know when, I never know when to say when
