This is not the love, my dear, I've dreamed of all my life,
Friendship, love, and forever man and wife.
Don't waste time regretting what is surely not our fault,
Fate won't be our undoing, if we are worth our salt.

Let's be fools, let's take a chance.
If we decide to wait, or hesitate, we'll lose romance.
With no flowers, with no music, with no band,
We go waltzing down the rainbow,
Just because we're holding hands.

Let's be fools, let's skip the ring.
What if our hearts should ache,
Our love will take away the sting.
We're unhappy being sensible and sticking to the rules.
Reprehensible, but...
Let's be fools.
