I'll Never Fall in Love Again Lyrics


What do you get when you fall in love?
A guy with a pin to burst your bubble
That's what you get for all your trouble
I'll Never Fall in Love Again
I'll never fall in love again

What do you get when you kiss a guy?
You get enough germs to catch pneumonia
After you do, he'll never phone ya
I'll never fall in love again
Dontcha know that I'll never fall in love again?

Don't tell me what it's all about
'Cause I've been there and I'm glad I'm out
Out of those chains, those chains that bind you
That is why I'm here to remind you

What do you get when you fall in love?
You only get lies and pain and sorrow
So far at least until tomorrow
I'll never fall in love again
No, no, I'll never fall in love again

Ahh, out of those chains, those chains that bind you
That is why I'm here to remind you

What do you get when you fall in love?
You only get lies and pain and sorrow
So far at least until tomorrow
I'll never fall in love again
Dontcha know that I'll never fall in love again
I'll never fall in love again

I'll Never Fall in Love Again
  • Burt Bacharach and Hal David wrote this for the Broadway musical Promises, Promises, Neil Simon's musical adaptation of Billy Wilder's screenplay The Apartment. Bacharach and David had added this song to the musical at the last minute at a time when Burt had the flu, which explains Hal David's little joke of rhyming "Pneumonia" with "Phone ya."
  • Though she did not appear in Promises, Promises, Warwick recorded the five songs for the musical and included three of them on her 1968 album Promises, Promises. This was not included on an album until Warwick's 1970 release I'll Never Fall In Love Again.
  • Because there was no time to write a full musical arrangement, the song was performed to a solitary guitar accompaniment, which was unusual for a Bacharach composition.
  • In the UK Bobby Gentry had the hit version, her cover topped the UK charts for a week in October 1969.
  • Burt Bacharach has said that he wrote this song faster than any other, since he was working on deadline. "Given the opportunity, I'll play with a song or an orchestration for as long as I can," he said.
  • Speaking with Record Collector magazine, Burt Bacharach said: "I had just gotten out of the hospital. I'd been on the road and gotten pneumonia. We were on the road with Promises, Promises and we'd try to get this song written and into the show the next night or two nights later. That's where Hal's line came from, 'what do you do when you kiss a girl, you get another germs to catch an ammonia, after you do she'll never phone ya.' So having been in the hospital for five days with pneumonia, I got out and struggled to write that song feeling not too great. You should take a rest after that and not go back into the Broadway show environment out on the road!"
  • This won the 1970 Grammy award for Best Contemporary Vocal Performance.
  • The Carpenters covered this song in 1970 on their second album, Close to You.
