Eat well, live well, and be merry!

Too Late


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, there’s 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.

I can see that you are lonesome just like me, and it being late,
You’d like some some company,
Well I’ve had two, I look at you, and you look back at me,
The guy you’re with has up and split, the chair next to you’s free,
And I hope that you don’t fall in love with me.
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.
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.

-Tom Waits, Hope I Don’t Fall in Love With You
