STRANGERS WHEN WE MEET
Lyrics: Richard Quine - Music: George Duning
Dennis Lotis with the Tony Osborne Orchestra
If we say 'Hello", they'd be sure to know,
So we play our parts discreetly -
We're strangers when we meet.
If I say "Adieu", as I long to do,
I'd display my heart completely -
There's danger when we meet.
For a moment, we loved -
It was only a star-crossed moment, and yet
Your kiss is the kiss I'll never forget.
Darling, if or when we should meet again,
Right or wrong, we must hide the longing inside,
The love that was so bittersweet -
Pretend we're merely strangers -
Pretend we're merely strangers when we meet.
