I'D RATHER BE SAFE THAN BE SORRY
(Kessler - Taylor)
WARREN SMITH (SUN 239, 1956)

You wonder why I don't say I love you
When we're all alone out in the pale moonlight
You wonder why I don't hold you closer
Whenever I'm kissing you goodnight
Or why I don't say I'm lost without you
When you tell me you can't live without my charm
Well, I'd rather be safe than be sorry
When I see you cuddle in another's arms

You'll find that I'm not like all the others
I'm not wearing my heart pinned on my sleeve
I'll keep it locked up until it's over
I don't want it broken when you leave
You've left a string of broken hearts behind you
It's the talk that's going all over town
And I'd rather be safe than be sorry
Sorry, when they say you've turned me down
