The Gentleman Obviously Doesn't Believe (In Love)

The gentleman obviously doesn't believe in making love
He shrinks if you mention a bench in a park for two
It's hard to conceive that he doesn't believe in stealing a kiss
Like me and you and you
 
The gentleman obviously doesn't believe in alcohol
Whenever he lunches, rum punches are all taboo
It seems he's not cursed with that heavenly thirst for bottle delights
Like me and you and you
 
He's never been known to gamble
He doesn't take weekend trips
In lover's lane he won't ramble
And a cigarette has never caressed his lips
 
He frowns on the latest dances
Says jazz is his favourite bore
He doesn't seek life's romances
So I wonder what on Earth he is living for
 
The gentleman obviously doesn't believe in moonlight walks
Alone with a girl and he'd faint
Yes, that's just what he'd do
He's one of those gents who just hasn't the sense to thrill to a kiss
Like me and you and you
 
The gentleman obviously doesn't believe in making love
He shrinks if you mention a bench in a park for two
It's hard to conceive that he doesn't believe in stealing a kiss
Like me and you and this'un and that'un and which'un and what'un and it
