"Something Stupid" as written by and Carson Parks....
I know I stand in line
Until you think
You have the time
To spend an evening with me
And if we go
Someplace to dance
I know that
There's a chance
You won't be
Leaving with me
Then afterwards
We drop into
A quiet little place
And have a drink or two
And then I go
And spoil it all
By saying something stupid
Like I love you

I can see it in your eyes
That you despise
The same old lines
You heard the night before
And though it's

Just a line to you
For me it's true
And never seemed
So right before

I practice every day
To find some
Clever lines to say
To make the meaning
Come through
But then I think
I'll wait until the
Evening gets late

And I'm alone with you
The time is right
Your perfume
Fills my head
The stars get red
And oh the night's so blue
And then I go
And spoil it all
By saying something stupid
Like I love you

    General CommentActually Frank Sinatra is the one who COVERED this song. It was written by C. Carson Parks and originally recorded in 1966 by Parks and his wife Gaile Foote, as "Carson and Gaile".

    General CommentI dig this song. The video is super fun. Nicole & Robbie's voices work really well together. I believe this was originally done by Frank and Nancy Sinatra...I may be wrong. I love the words, too; this song is just fun.

    General CommentThe lyrics for this romantic, soft and delightful song were not so classic when Frank Sinatra first sang them. But with Robbie Williams and Nicole Kidman's own version, they strike the modern ears and are without a doubt one of the most romantic ones ever heard by people since it got released.

    Basically, it says: "Oh no, I did it again: I love you!"

    General CommentThis is a really beautiful song. The fact that it was sung by both a male and a female really makes it work all the better. Its about true love of two lovers declaring their love for one another without taking their lover for granted. Its about treasuring each moment of their lives together as each other thinks that they are better than they deserve and for that reason they treasure each other a lot in light of this, afriad to lose each other. The song is so beautiful that it was sung by both male and the female counterpart, as it is like both of them declaring their equally strong love for each other.

    General CommentGood song, but it's a little strange that Robin Williams sings it. It's not precisely his style.

    General CommentYeah, I like this song really much but however I don't adore Nicole Kidman very much, she's an actress, not a singer, duh. Robbie's too good for her :D
