A fine romance, with no kisses,
A fine romance, my friend, this is!
We should be like a couple of hot tomatos.
But you're as cold as yesterday's mashed potatoes.

A fine romance, you won't nestle,
A fine romance, you won't wrestle,
I might as well play bridge with my old maid aunts,
I haven't got a chance.
This is as fine romance!

A fine romance, my good fellow!
You take romance, I'll take jello.
You're calmer than the seals in the Arctic ocean,
At least they flap their fins to express emotion.

A fine romance, with no quarrels,
With no insults, and all morals,
I've never touched the crease in your blue serge pants,
I never get the chance.
This is a fine romance!
