I Might Fall Back on You lyrics

I Might Fall Back on You

FRANK
Little girl, you are safe with me:
I can protect what's mine;
I am a sturdy maple tree
And you're my clinging vine!

ELLIE
Woods are just full of maple trees,
Cedar and oak and pine;
Let me look them over, please,
And then I'll let you know
If you have a show.
After I have looked around
The world for a mate,
Then, perhaps, I might fall back on you!
When I am convinced
That there is no better fate,
Then I might decide that you will do.

FRANK
I am just an average lad,
Though no gift to womanhood,
Some girls say I'm not so bad!

ELLIE
Others say you're not so good!
But if you are patient, dear,
And willing to wait,
There's a chance I might fall back on you!

FRANK & ELLIE
After I/you have looked around
The world for a mate
Then, perhaps, I/you might fall back on you/me!
When I/you are convinced
That there is no better fate,
Then I/you might decide that you/I will do!

FRANK
I am just an average lad,
Though no gift to womanhood,
Some girls say I'm not so bad!

ELLIE
Others say you're not so good!

FRANK & ELLIE
But if you are/I am patient, dear,
And willing to wait,
There's a chance I/you might fall back on you/me!
(Two groups of GIRLS dance on)

GROUP 1
(to FRANK)
After she has looked around
The world for a mate
Then, perhaps, she might fall back on you!
When she is convinced
That there is no better fate
Then she might decide that you will do!

GROUP 2
(to ELLIE)
He is just an average lad,
Though no gift to womanhood,
Some girls say he's not so bad,
Others say he's not so good!

ALL GIRLS
(to FRANK)
But if you are patient, dear,
And willing to wait
There's a chance she might fall back on you!
(DANCE)
