Lyrics:

Why you've still got your looks
what's the use of books?
lock up the dorm
we'll go
I'd like to take your mind off your cares
we'll brush off their stares
I know a place
where we can be alone

Is he the one that you mean?
pretend he's not been seen
quick out the back
my bike is 'round the way
I'll give you a lift
my friend will work my shift
it's been arranged

Let me whisper in your ear
though love is too costly I fear

While I've still got some time
come on it's hardly nine
don't make me whine
or mope
I'd like to ease your mind
of your doubts
upon this couch
relax, can't you see we're all alone?

The coffee shop or the square
love, I'll meet you there
yes, quite the pair
we'll make there
strolling 'bout
throughout
all the town
in secrecy we're bound
play we're just friends

Let me whisper in your ear
though love is too costly I fear

Let me whisper in your ear...

What's there to do at this hour, I wonder?
What's there to do at this hour?
You should be home in bed
