Don't tell me
About a night in June
Or a shady lane
Beneath the velvet moon

Don't tell me
Cause I wanna talk about you

Don't mention that waterfall
Or that grassy spot
Where crickets softly call

Please don't tell me
Cause, baby
I wanna talk about you

The moon and the stars
The objects on Mars
Are things that
We've talked of before

But your love for me
Was the question
And your answer
Threw back Heaven's door

So tell me
Your love will be sincere
Then, my darling
You need never fear

Cause I love you
And I wanna talk about you
About you

So don't tell me
Because I wanna talk about you
