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 so close for comfort

 

Too close, too close for comfort, please, 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 now

Too late to run for cover

She's much too close for comfort now

 

 

Too close, much too close

She's much too close for comfort now
