Someone told someone
And someone told you
I hope you don't believe
What they say

Do nothin' till you hear from me
Pay no attention to what's said
Why people tear the seam from anyone's dream?
And it's over my head

Do nothin' till you hear from me
At least consider our romance
If you take the word from others you heard
I haven't a chance

But I've been seen with someone new
What does it mean? And I'm untrue?
When we're apart, the words in my heart
Reveal how I feel, I feel about you

Some kiss may cloud my memory
And other arms may hold a thrill
But please, please do nothin', do nothin', babe
Oh, don't do a thing till you hear, hear from me
You never will

And it's true, babe, I've been seen with someone new
But what does it mean, I'm untrue?
When we're apart, the words in my heart
Reveal how I feel about you

Some kiss may cloud my memory
And other arms may hold a thrill
But please do nothin'
Do nothin' till you hear from me
Oh baby, and you never will

Some kiss may cloud my memory
But please, please do nothin'
Please do nothin' till you hear from me
Do nothin', baby, no
Till you hear from me, don't try
