It's just no good--
(Fall in love with him)
You know that you should
(Fall in love with him)
I wish that you would
(Fall in love with him)
If only you could
(Fall in love with him).

More than my friend he's been my brother
He's said to me he's dreamed you'd be his wife,
When I think of you it's as just another lover
It's a simple choice of how you see your life.

A singer's just another traveling salesman
Another night, another town to sell my wares,
And the times that you'd be riding the excitement
Won't make up for times when no one would be there.

He's an open book--Why don't you read him?
He's already hooked--Why don't you lead him?
Take a look--You just might need him someday
In some way.
I'm the medicine man--I've started to mumble
A tight-rope walker--I've started to stumble.
Humpty Dumpty already tumbled down

Haven't you found
It's just no good--
(Fall in love with him)
You know that you should
(Fall in love with him)
I wish that you would
(Fall in love with him)
If only you could
(Fall in love with him).

You know I never thought I'd ever hear me saying this
Turning down a chance for touching something fine,
But I'd rather have you happy and completely his
Then have you waiting for me when I find the time.

He's an open book--Why don't you read him?
He's already hooked--Why don't you lead him?
Take a look--You just might need him someday
In some way.
And I'm the medicine man--I've started to mumble
A tight-rope walker--I've started to stumble.

Humpty Dumpty already tumbled down

Haven't you found
It's just no good--
(Fall in love with him)
You know that you should
(Fall in love with him)
I wish that you would
(Fall in love with him)
If only you could
(Fall in love with him).

(Fall in love with him)
You know that you could
(Fall in love with him)
I wish that you would
(Fall in love with him)
If only you could
(Fall in love with him)
It's just no good
(Fall in love with him)
You know that you should.
