PEOPLE WILL SAY WE’RE IN LOVE

(Performed with musical accompaniment to ‘People will say we’re in love’ by Rogers & Hammerstein, 1943, but in a minor key)

Don’t praise my work so much

Don’t stand quite so near

Don’t laugh at my jokes too much

People will guess that we’re Queer

 

Don’t sigh and gaze at me

Your love is far too clear

Your eyes mustn’t glow like mine

People will know that we’re Queer

 

Don’t risk being truthful

Honesty would cost us both dear

Our families shamed, us prosecuted

Just because we are Queer
