Please help me I’m falling
In love with you
Close the door to tentation
Don’t let me walk through
Turn away from me Darling
I beg gin you to
Please help me I’m falling
In love with you

-2-

I belong to an other
Who’s arm dre for’d
But I promised for ever
To have and to haul
So I can never be free dear
But when I’m with you
Oh I know I’m loosing
The strength to be through
Please help me I’m falling
(………) will be a sin
Close the door to tentation
Don’t let me walk in
For I must’nt want you
But Darling I do
Please help me I’m falling
In love with you
Please help me I’m falling
In love with you.
