Verse 1
You hold me tight, and when the time is right,
You press your smile against mine.
From the moment out eyes met,
You promised you’d never make me cry.

So don’t make me cry,
Just make me laugh or make me smile,
Make me dance with you for a while,
But please don’t go and lie.
Don’t make me cry.

Verse 2
Why? you won’t say when you push me away,
And you look the other way
When you see that tear drop forming in my eye.
What happened to your promise,
That you’d never make me cry?


Verse 3
And even though I see we’re over,
I can’t help how my heart goes after,
After all the memories,
Like the memory when our eyes first met,
And you promised you’d never make me cry…


Chorus repeated:
Don’t make me cry!
Please make me laugh, or make me smile,
Come on let’s dance for a little while,
Oh why did you go and lie,
And make me cry?

Verse 4
Ooooh, you held me tight, and when the time was right,
You pressed your smile against mine…
