"No one can say he's lived until he's loved"
"Then go out and love someone"
"I do, her"
"Have you told her?"
"No, you know me, I'm too shy"
"Here, I could cable her!"
""Hmmm, why not semaphore..."
"You've got to declare yourself openly, otherwise you'll stay right where you are!"

(Music)

"I am a plain, simple man, I have plain, simple feelings and I use plain, simple words
And I simply have to let you know, plainly, that I -
That I plainly, simply..."

(Music)

"I think he's rather nice"
"Then you have him"
"Oh, no, really, I think you ought to give him a chance
He seems kind of... helpless"
"Helplessness is the last thing I am looking for"

(Music)

"Oh, please, if we're going to spend the rest of our lives together, you must learn not to interrupt"
"Rest of our lives?"
"Yes"
"You mean marriage?"
"Of course"
"You've got a nerve!"
"I've got several... they all function normally"
"Do you realize what you've said?"
"I should do. It pounded my brain often enough, asleep and awake in the drowsy fantasy moment of every lonely dawn
Well, go on, what's your answer?"
"You take my breath away"
"Oh, it's just the sudden realization, you see here, of the fact that... that I love you"

    Lyric CorrectionThe first section with line is actually:

    "Here, I could cable her!"
    "Hmmm, why not semaphore? Ah, but you've got to declare yourself openly, otherwise you'll stay right where you are!"

    General CommentThis is my favorite song from Pogo. Love all the quotes from "Carrying on Cruising". It all just fits together so perfectly.
