Hush now, don't explain 
I know you ain't staying
I'm glad you're back
Don't explain 

Quiet, don't explain
You've mixed with some dame
Skip that lipstick
Don't explain 

You know that I love you
And what love endures
Nothing rates above you
When I'm so completely yours

Cry to hear folks chatter
And I know you cheat
Right and wrong don't matter
When you're with me, sweet

Hush now, don't explain
You're my joy and pain
My life's yours, love
Don't explain

You know that I love you
And what love endures
Nothing rates above you
When I'm so completely yours

Cry to hear folks chatter
And I know you cheat
but, right and wrong don't matter
When you're with me, sweet

Hush now, don't explain
You're my joy and pain
My life's yours, love
Don't explain
