We thought that love was over, That we were really through, I said I didn't love him, That we'd begin anew And you can all believe me, We sure intended to, But we just couldn't say goodbye. The chair and then the sofa, They broke right down and cried, The curtains started waving For me to come inside. I tell you confidentially, The tears were hard to hide, And we just couldn't say goodbye. The clock was striking twelve o'clock It smiled on us below, With folded hands it seemed to say, "We'll miss you if you go." So I went back and kissed him, And when I looked around, The room was singing love songs, And dancing up and down. And now we're both so happy, Because at last we've found. That we just couldn't say goodbye. People in love are funny They’re mighty hard to explain One minute they quarrel Then they’re back together again Take my case for instance We had a little fuss Now listen, ladies and gentlemen Here’s what happened to us (Instrumental break) I said I didn't love him, That we'd begin anew (Instrumental l break) But we just couldn’t say goodbye. The chair and then the sofa, They broke right down and cried, (Instrumental break) I tell you confidentially, The tears were hard to hide, And we just couldn't say goodbye. (Piano break) So I went back and kissed him, And when I looked around, The room was singing love songs, And dancing up and down. And now we're both so happy, Because at last we've found. That we just couldn't say goodbye. (Transcribed by Bill Huntley - November 2004)
