Don't blame me for falling in love with you.

I'm under your spell but how can I help it,

Don't blame me.

Can't you see when you do the things you do,

And I can't conceal the thrill that I'm feeling,

Don't blame me.

I can't help it if that doggone moon above

Makes me need someone like you to love.

Blame your kiss, as sweet as a kiss can be,

And blame all your charms that melt in my arms,

But don't blame me.
