Better Fall Out Of Love Lyrics

[Joe]

Believe me, baby, in "The Lincoln Suite"

The paths of politics and show-biz meet.

[Edie]

You'll never drag me south of 42nd Street.

Better fall out of love.

[Joe]

I need a leading lady with me neck and neck

To help me lobby for a campaign check.

[Edie]

The only lobby I know is "The Martin Beck."

[Edie & Joe]

Better fall out of love.

[Edie]

I crave the glamour of a Broadway show,

The blaze of shimmering marquees.

[Joe]

With me you'll always get a standing "o."

A national saint.

[Edie]

"The Palace" it ain't.

[Joe]

Believe me, baby, on Election Day

The White House has it on "The Great White Way."

[Edie]

But with your inauguration on a matinee-

[Edie & Joe]

There lies the rub, my dove!

[Edie]

Ciao Romeo - I'll take the Rialto.

[Edie & Joe]

Better fall out of love!

Better fall out of love!

[Edie]

I won't plant dahlias with the D.A.R.

[Joe](spoken)

Fine!

[Edie]

The cherry blossoms make me sneeze.

[Joe](spoken)

Gesundheit!

[Edie]

About your daddy and that movie star...

[Joe]

That's over and done!

[Edie]

Like father, like son?

[Joe]

Hey-!

A lasting marriage should be built on trust.

[Edie]

You can't keep secrets or the bond's a bust,

[Edie & Joe]

Although there are certain topics better un-discussed!

[Edie]

Who have you been with?

[Joe]

You to begin with!

[Edie & Joe]

Better fall out of...!

Have to fall out of...!

Got to fall out...!

Need to fall out...!

Time to fall...!

[Joe](spoken)

Goddamnit, Edie, you're impossible!

[Edie](spoken)

Don't take that tone with me-

[Joe](spoken)

What tone?

[Edie](spoken)

The way Daddy talks to Mother!

[Joe](spoken)

Would you shut up about your mother? Aren't I supposed to be the one who matters most?

[Edie](spoken)

You are. Of course you are. I don't know what's wrong with me.

[Joe](spoken)

You've just got the jitters, that's all. I get 'em, too. Sometimes I'm in the middle of a flight maneuver, and my nerves

just go. So you know what I do?

(sung)

I'm up there flyin' on a wing and prayer

With nuthin' under me but empty air

Till I remember you and then I'm halfway there...

[Edie]

What was I thinkin' of...?

[Edie & Joe]

Win, place, or show-

[Edie]

I'm bettin' on us, Joe.

[Edie & Joe]

Better stay right in love.

Better stay right in love.

Come as it may.

Be what it might,

Better stay right in love.
