lyrics

Be wise, Be fair, Be sure, Be there, Behave, Beware

Be wise, Be smart, Behave my heart
Don't upset your cart when she's so close

Be soft, Be sweet, But be discreet
Don't go off your feet
She's too close for comfort

Too close, too close for comfort, no, not again
Too close, too close to know just when to say when

Be firm and be fair, Be absolutely sure, Beware
Arm your guard, take care, When there's such temptation

One thing leads to another
Too late to run for cover
She's much too close for comfort now

Be wise, Be fair, Be sure, Beware

Put on your old thinking cap, boy, 'Cause if you don't look out, you,
Will find that you are much too
Too close for comfort

Your headin’ for a mishap, boy,
The first thing that you know she
Will have you up that old tree
She's too close for comfort

Too close, too-oo-oo close, Much too close
Sha dowee-ah-doo-baa-doo-wah, dowee-ah-doo-baa-doo-wah

Be firm and be fair, Be absolutely sure, Beware
Arm your guard, take care When there is such temptation

One thing leads to another
Too late to run for cover
She's much too close for comfort now

One thing leads to another
Too late to run for cover
She's much too close for comfort now

One thing leads to another
Too late to run for your mother
She's much too close for comfort now

Be wise, Be fair, Be sure, Be there, Behave, Beware
She's too close, too close, for comfort now
