  • Don't write a letter when you want to leave
    Don't call me at 3 A.M. from a friend's apartment
    I'd like to choose how I hear the news
    Take me to a park that's covered with trees
    Tell me on a Sunday please

    Let me down easy, no big song and dance
    No long faces, no long looks, no deep conversation
    I know the way we should spend the day
    Take me to a zoo that's got chimpanzees
    Tell me on a Sunday please

    Don't want to know who's to blame
    it won't help knowing
    Don't want to fight day and night
    bad enough you're going

    Don't leave in silence with no words at all
    Don't get drunk and slam the door
    that's no way to end this
    I know how I want you to say goodbye
    Find a circus ring with a flying trapeze
    Tell me on a Sunday please

    I don't want to fight day and night
    bad enough you're going
    Don't leave in silence with no words at all
    Don't get drunk and slam the door
    that's no way to end this
    I know how I want you to say goodbye
    Don't run off in the pouring rain
    Don't call me as they call your plane
    Take that hurt out of all the pain
    Take me to a park that's covered with trees
    Tell me on a Sunday please Writer/s: Andrew Lloyd Webber, Donald Black
