"People Will Say We're in Love [From Oklahoma!]" as written by and O. Hammerstein Ii R. Rodgers....
Why do they think up stories that link my name with yours?
Why do the neighbors gossip all day behind their doors?
I know a way to prove what they say is quite untrue
Here is the gist, a practical list of dont's for you

Don't throw bouquets at me
Don't please my folks too much
Don't laugh at my jokes too much
People will say we're in love

Don't sigh and gaze at me
Your sighs are so like mine
Your eyes mustn't glow like mine
People will say we're in love

Don't start collecting things
Give me my rose and my glove
Sweetheart, they're suspecting things
People will say we're in love

Some people claim that you are to blame as much as I
Why do you take the trouble to bake my favorite pie?
Grantin' your wish I carved our initials on that tree
Just keep a slice of all the advice ya give so free

Don't praise my charm too much
Don't look so vain with me
Don't stand in the rain with me
People will say we're in love

Don't take my arm too much
Don't keep your hand in mine
Your hand feels so grand in mine
People will say we're in love

Don't dance all night with me
'Til the stars fade from above
They'll see it's all right with me
People will say we're in love

Hey! If there's anybody out and around this yard that can hear my voice
I want 'em to know that Miss Laurey Williams is my girl!

Curly!
Hah-ha! And she went and got me to ask her to marry me!
They'll hear you all the way to Catoosie!
Let 'em!
Let people say we're in love
Who cares what happens now?
Just keep your hand in mine
Your hand feels so grand in mine

Let people say we're in love
Starlight looks well on us
Let the stars beam from above
Who cares if they tell on us
Let people say we're in love
