I'm promised to John, promised to John
Can't you see that I'm promised to John.

I saw her on the square and I fell in love right there
Though I was told she was promised to John
I followed her in a store and I loved her even more
Though I knew she was promised to John.

I'm promised to John promised to John
Don't you know I'm promised to John
And his heart would surely break if I made this mistake
Can't you see that I'm promised to John.

I said, "Let's take a walk someplace where we can talk.
Yes, I know that you're promised to John.
It won't hurt anyone, we'll just have a little fun
'Cause I know that you're promised to John."

We walked behind a tree and she gave her lips to me
Even though she was promised to John
And I guess she's with him now, she should be anyhow
'Cause she said she was promised to John.

"I'm promised to John, promised to John.
Don't you know I'm promised to John?
And his heart would surely break if I made this mistake
Can't you see that I'm promised to John?''

"Can't you see I'm promised to John
Don't you know I'm just promised to John?..."
