Be wise. Be fair. Be sure. Be there. Behave. Beware.

Be wise, be smart, behave, my heart
Don't upset your cart when she's so close
Be soft, be sweet, but be discreet
Don't go off your feet, she's to close for comfort

Too close, too close for comfort, no, not again
Too close, too close to know just when to say "when"

Be firm, be fair, be sure, beware
On your guard, take care, while there's such temptation

One thing leads to another
Too late to run for cover
She's much too close for comfort




Be wise. Be fair. Be sure. Be there.

Put on your old thinking cap boy
 Cause if you don't look out you 
Will find out that you are much too
You're too close for comfort.
You're heading for a mishap boy
The first thing that you know she
Will have you up that old tree.
She's too close for comfort 


Too close, so close 
Too close 

Be firm and be fair, be absolutely sure, beware 
On your guard, take care, when there's such temptation 

One thing leads to another 
Too late to run for cover 
Much too, too close for comfort now

One thing leads to another 
Too late to run for cover 
Much too, too close for comfort now

One thing 
One thing leads to another 
Much too, too close for comfort now

Be wise. Be fair. Be sure. Be there. Behave. Beware.
She's too close, too close for comfort now
