I never thought I'd see the day
That you would come to me and say
I am sorry that we had ever met
I guess it all just goes to show
How little one can really know
Somebody that's my darling you can bet

I'll never again risk all my chips
On laughing eyes and lying lips
I may risk some but I'll hold back a part
At burnt child always fears the fire
Though you may fill me with desire
I'll do my loving with half a heart

Half a love is better than none
I may miss out on half the fun
But it won't hurt me half as much if we should part
I may just feel just half the bliss
If we share just half a kiss
But I'll always be left with just half a heart

I only wished that I could be
Sure that the next gal that loved me
Would love completely with her heart and soul
But I'm afraid she'll let me down
And laugh at me all over town
So I'm gonna keep my self-control

He who loves and runs away will love again another day
Will be my motto from the very start
I'll never again be taken in by twinkle
And a dimple chin
I'll do my lovin' with half a heart

Half a love is better than none...
