    They got free speech, tourists, police in trucks
    Two men say they're Jesus one of them must be wrong

    Well I hope that I don't fall in love with you
    'Cause falling in love just makes me blue
    Well the music plays and you display
    Your heart for me to see
    I had a beer and now I hear you
    Calling out for me
    And I hope that I don't fall in love with you

    Well the room is crowded, people everywhere
    And I wonder, should I offer you a chair?
    Well if you sit down with this old clown
    Take that frown and break it
    Before the evening's gone away
    I think that we could make it
    And I hope that I don't fall in love with you

    Well the night does funny things inside a man
    These old tom-cat feelings you don't understand
    Well I turn around to look at you
    You light a cigarette
    I wish I had the guts to bum one
    But we've never met
    And I hope that I don't fall in love with you

    I can see that you are lonesome just like me
    And it being late, you'd like some some company
    Well I turn around to look at you
    And you look back at me
    The guy you're with he's up and split
    The chair next to you's free
    And I hope that you don't fall in love with me

    Now it's closing time, the music's fading out
    Last call for drinks, I'll have another stout
    Well I turn around to look at you
    You're nowhere to be found
    I search the place for your lost face
    Guess I'll have another round
    And I think that I just fell in love with you

    I wanted to cite Cyndi Lauper's She Bop, but I can't imagine that complying with the rules.

    Come down off your throne and leave your body alone
    Somebody must change
    You are the reason I've been waiting so long
    Somebody holds the key

    Well, I'm near the end and I just ain't got the time
    And I'm wasted and I can't find my way home

    Steve Winwood, Blind Faith 1969

    Two of my favorites:

    'Cause I built you a home in my heart
    With rotten wood that decayed from the start
    'Cause you can't find nothing at all
    If there was nothing there all along

    Crooked Teeth - Death Cab for Cutie

    And the sun was on the rise
    I never felt so wicked
    As when I willed our love to die

    And I was your silver lining
    As the story goes
    I was your silver lining
    But now, I'm gold

    Eventually, I transcribe the lyrics, but in the meantime, have a listen, and make your own transcription if you'd like. The whole this is superb. :bassist:

    From the pen that brought it's such classics as -
    "Isn't it awfully nice to have a penis" and -
    "I put on women's clothing and hang around in bars"
    We have...

    If life seems jolly rotten,
    There's something you've forgotten,
    And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
    When you're feeling in the dumps,
    Don't be silly chumps,
    Just purse your lips and whistle-that's the thing.
    And...

    C'mon everybody!
