Do nothing till you hear from me
Pay no attention to what's said
Why people tear the seams
Of other one's dreams, is over my head

Do nothing till you hear from me
At least consider our romance
If you should take the word
Of others you've heard, I haven't a chance

True, I've been seen with someone new
But does that mean that I'm untrue?
When we're apart the words in my heart
Reveal how I feel about you

Some kiss may cloud my memory
And other arms may hold a thrill
But please, do nothing till you hear it from me
And you never will

True, I've been seen with someone new
But does that mean that I'm untrue?
When we're apart the words in my heart
Reveal how I feel about you

Some kiss may cloud my memory
And other arms may hold a thrill
But don't do nothing till you hear it from me
And you never will
