You give your hand to me
And then you say, "Hello."
And I can hardly speak,
My heart is beating so.
And anyone can tell
You think you know me well.
But you don't know me, no

No you don't know the one
Who dreams of you at night;
And longs to kiss your lips
And longs to hold you tight
To you I'm just a friend.
That's all I've ever been.
No you don't know me

I never knew the art of making love,
Though my heart aches with love for you.

Afraid and shy, I let my chance go by.
A chance that you might love me too.

You give your hand to me,
And then you say, "Goodbye."

I watched you walk away,
Beside the lucky guy
Oh, you'll never ever know
The one who loved you so.
No, you don't know me
But I never knew the art of making love,
Though my heart aches with love for you.

I'm afraid and shy, and I let my chance go by.
A chance that you might love me too.

You give your hand to me,
And then you say, "Goodbye."

I watched you walk away,
Beside the lucky guy
Oh, you'll never ever know
The one who loved you so.
No you don't know me
I say, you'll never ever know
The one who loved you so.
No you don't know me

No you don't know me
