Oscar Hammerstein – People Will Say We're In Love lyrics

Why do they think up stories that link my name with yours?
Why do the neighbors gossip all day behind their doors?
I know a way to prove what they say is quite untrue
Here is the gist
A practical list of don'ts fer you

Don't throw bouquets at me
Don't please my folks too much
Don't laugh at my jokes too much
People will say we're in love

Laughs at your jokes-

Don't sigh and gaze at me
Your sighs are so like mine
Your eyes musn't glow like mine
People will say we're in love!

Don't start collecting things
Give me my rose and my glove
Sweetheart, they're suspecting things
People will say we're in love!

Some people claim that you're to blame as much as I
Why do you take the trouble to bake my favorite pie?
Grantin' your wish, I carved our initals on that tree
Just keep a slice of all the advice you give so free

Don't praise my charm too much
Don't look so vain with me
Don't stand in the rain with me
People will say we're in love

Don't take my arm too much
Don't keep your hand in mine
Your hand feels so grand in mine
People will say we're in love!

Don't dance all night with me
'Til the stars fade from above
They'll see it's all right with me
People will say we're in love
