I won’t kiss your hand, Madam,
Crazy for you though I am.

I’ll never woo you on bended knee,
No Madam, not me.

We don’t need that flow’ry fuss,
No sir, Madam, not for us

My romance
doesn’t have to have a moon
in the sky

My romance
doesn’t need a blue lagoon 
standing by;

No mounth of May,
no twinkling stars,
no hide away,
no soft guitars.

My romance
doesn’t need a castle 
rising in Spain,

Nor a dance
to a constantly surprising refrain.

Wide awake
I can make my most fantasting dreams come true.

My romance doesn’t need a thing but you.
