WE JUST COULDN'T SAY GOODBYE LYRICS
(Woods, additional lyrics by Stookey)

People in love are funny
Mighty hard to explain
One minute they quarrel
Then they're back together again

Now take my case for instance
We were breaking up I swear
I had just stopped by to tell her
That I no longer cared

We thought that love was over
That we were really through
I said I didn't love her
That we'd begin anew
You can all believe me
We sure intended to
We just couldn't say goodbye

The chair and then the sofa
They both broke down and cried
The curtains started waving
For me to come inside
I tell you confidentially
The tears were hard to hide
We just couldn't say goodbye

The clock was striking twelve o'clock
It smiled on us below
With folded hands it seemed to say
We'll miss you if you go

So I went back and kissed her
When I looked around
The room was singing love songs
Dancing up and down
Now we're both so happy
Because at last we've found
We just couldn't say goodbye
