"I Hope That I Don't Fall In Love With You" as written by and Tom Waits....
Well I hope that I don't fall in love with you.
'cause falling in love just makes me blue.
Well the music plays and you display your heart for me to see,
I had a beer and now I hear you calling out for me.
And I hope that I don't fall in love with you.
Well the room is crowded, people everywhere
And I wonder should I offer you a chair?
Well if you sit down with this old clown,
Take that frown and break it, before the evening's gone away,
I think that we could make it,
And I hope that I don't fall in love with you.
Well the night does funny things inside a man.
These old tomcat feelings you don't understand,
Well I turn around to look at you; you light a cigarette,
I wish I had the guts to bum one, but we've never met.
And I hope that I don't fall in love with you.
I can see that you are lonesome just like me,
And it being late, you'd like some some company.
Well I turn around to look at you, and you look back at me,
The guy you're with has up and split the chair next to you's free.
And I hope that you don't fall in love with me.
Now it's closing time, the music's fading out.
Last call for drinks, I'll have another stout.
Well I turn around to look at you; you're nowhere to be found,
I search the place for your lost face,
Guess I'll have another round.
And I think that I just fell in love with you

    General CommentYou're an idiot oofus, I swear every single song you submit has some sort of error. This song is called Closing Time and was originally by Tom Waits. I know this for a fact because I have the original version downloaded, as well as this version, were Hootie specifically says this was originally by Tom Waits. Get your shit together oofus.

    General CommentIt's actually written on Scattered, Smothered, and Covered case "I Hope That I Don't Fall In Love With You." Hootie and the Blowfish had played on tv, and that did this song. They put it on Scattered, Smothered, and Covered, but, even though they'd said in the show that it was called "Closing Time", the cd reads "I Hope that I Don't Fall in Love with You".
