  • Lyrics
  • What do you get when you fall in love?
    A guy with a pin to burst your bubble
    That's what you get for all your trouble
    I'll never fall in love again
    I'll never fall in love again

    What do you get when you kiss a guy?
    You get enough germs to catch pneumonia
    After you do, he'll never phone ya
    I'll never fall in love again
    Dontcha know that I'll never fall in love again?

    Don't tell me what it's all about
    'Cause I've been there and I'm glad I'm out
    Out of those chains, those chains that bind you
    That is why I'm here to remind you

    What do you get when you fall in love?
    You only get lies and pain and sorrow
    So far at least until tomorrow
    I'll never fall in love again
    No, no, I'll never fall in love again

    Ahh, out of those chains, those chains that bind you
    That is why I'm here to remind you

    What do you get when you fall in love?
    You only get lies and pain and sorrow
    So far at least until tomorrow
    I'll never fall in love again
    Dontcha know that I'll never fall in love again
    I'll never fall in love againWriter/s: HAL DAVID, BURT BACHARACH

  • Dave from Wheaton, IlActually, there was more than just guitar on it, at the end, there was flute accompaniment.
  • Camille from Toronto, OhDionne Warwick's voice is flawless when she sing this song. A classic.
  • Sara from Silver Spring, MdThe show starred the late Jerry Orbach of Law and Order fame. He was a good singer and joined Jill O'Hara who played his girlfriend in the show in singing it.
    Warwick also recorded the title song during tryouts. I'm not sure who the song was originally intended for but Jerry Orbach's character (the nerd played by Jack Lemmon in the film who gives his boss his apartment key only to find out it is the washroom one!) ended up singing it as his 11:00 number.
    The other two songs recorded by Warwick were Jill O'Hara's two solos.
