Lyrics by: Oscar Hammerstein II (O. Greeley Clendenning H. II)
Music by: Richard Rodgers
From the Show: Pipe Dream 1955 (M)
I leapt before I looked
And I got hooked.
I played with fire and burned,
That's how I learned.
I must admit I owe a lot to you.
>From now on I will know what not to do.
The next time it happens
I'll be wise enough to know
Not to trust my eye-sight
When my eyes begin to glow.
The next time I'm in love
With anyone like you,
My heart will sing no love song
Till I know the words are true.
"The next time it happens"
What a foolish thing to say!
Who expects a miracle to happen ev'ry day?
It isn't in the cards
As far as I can see
That a thing so beautiful and wonderful
Could happen more than once to me.
