And darling I resent it slightly
So hold that kiss, remember this

Don't sweetheart me if you don't mean it
Don't talk sweet words if they're not true
Don't tear my heart like it was paper
Because my heart loves only you

You can't go round sweethearting others
And then pretend that I'm yours exclusively
Love must be true, mean what you're saying
Unless you do, don't sweetheart me

You can't go round sweethearting others
And then pretend that I'm yours exclusively
Love must be true, mean what you're saying
Unless you do, don't you ever sweetheart me
