JUST PARTNERS
 

Why not be just partners for awhile
I donít want to call you sweetheart now
At parting just a handshake and a smile
Then thereíll be no tears or broken vows
Itís better that we never fall in love
Weíll be partners if you do your part
Weíll be the best of friends
And partners to the end
I couldnít bear another broken heart

I must admit that you are pure as gold, dear
I know I like you better than the rest
But Iím afraid to tell the story old, dear
Iíll never take another losing guess

Why not be just partners for awhile
I donít want to call you sweetheart now
At parting just a handshake and a smile
Then thereíll be no tears or broken vows
Itís better that we never fall in love
Weíll be partners if you do your part
Weíll be the best of friends
And partners to the end
I couldnít bear another broken heart

Just be the same each time we are alone, dear
Donít let the love light shine within your eyes
Thereíll be no aching heart when you are gone, dear
Weíll never have to say a sad goodbye

Why not be just partners for awhile
I donít want to call you sweetheart now
At parting just a handshake and a smile
Then thereíll be no tears or broken vows
Itís better that we never fall in love
Weíll be partners if you do your part
Weíll be the best of friends
And partners to the end
I couldnít bear another broken heart
