  1. Don't Tell Me

Words and music by Brookhyser, Scholz, & Butler

Lyrics

Don’t tell me, don’t tell me, don’t tell me
Don’t tell me that we’re through tonight
Don’t tell me that I just don’t fit you right
Don’t tell me I can’t make your scene
And don’t tell me that I didn’t mean a thing
Cause it won’t be fair
If you just don’t care
And I won’t be sore
I just won’t be yours
Don’t tell me that we’re through tonight
Don’t tell me that we’re through tonight
Don’t tell me that we’re through tonight
Don’t tell me that we’re through
The first week together man it was really swell
We held hands and threw coins into a wishing well
Now five weeks later you’re winking at my bros
I’m on this Greyhound headed for the Springer Show
Said I won’t be sad
And no I won’t be glad
Showing me the signs
That you won’t be mine
Don’t tell me that we’re through tonight
Don’t tell me that we’re through tonight
Don’t tell me that we’re through tonight
Don’t tell me that we’re through
(repeat)
You’re a “Jenny,” a “Michelle,” a “Peggy Sue”
My “Oh Donna,” “Jaimie’s Crying” where are you
I walk in find your tongue in some guy’s ear
Your explanation isn’t what I want to hear
So I won’t be sad
And no I won’t be mad
Showing me the signs
That you won’t be mine
Don’t tell me that we’re through tonight
Don’t tell me that we’re through tonight
Don’t tell me that we’re through tonight
So don’t tell me that we’re through
