Bobbie Gentry - 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
Don't you know that I'll never fall in love again

Don't tell me what's it 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 a life of pain and sorrow
So for at least until tomorrow
I'll never fall in love again
No, no, I'll never fall in love again

I'm 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 for at least until tomorrow
I'll never fall in love again
Don't you know that I'll never fall in love again
I'll never fall in love again

  6. George John Patey

  10. Brandon Pine

    Love this song

  11. Darren L

    Only charted in the UK and Australia according to wiki. Shame. Great song!

  12. Wilss

    'After you do, he'll never bone ya'.

  13. tricky dick

    Lorenzo Carcaterra's Gangster brought me here. I don't think much of this version because it is too raw. i think this should be sung with delicacy, like Dionne Warwick does, at least in the verse otherwise there cannot be the contrast with the middle third. And those drums are mixed too upfront.

  14. Candence Mars

    I’ve always loved Bobby Gentry since I heard her as a little girl.

  15. stacyblue1980

    Dont tell me what it's all about...

  16. takamisaka

    La mejor versión para mi, 🧐

  17. Francis McMenamin

    Kate Bush eat your heart out!

  18. aliccolo

    I first heard this version in the mid 90s when I was in middle school. I’ve tried to track it down ever since. Thank you for solving a 20+ year old mystery for me.

  19. X G

    her worst work..she's a genius..I guess the label demanded this..

  20. Michael McNulty

    Talent & looks!

  21. derpty dumb

    Austin Powers brought me here baby!!!

  22. Kim Tamm

    I was 5 when this came out. One of my favourites 😍

  23. Martin Lee

    This lovely arrangement saw off rival versions and climbed steadily to No.1 in the UK: 37, 32, 19, 9, 4, 3, 2, 1.

  24. krakatoa1200

    Love the song love Bobbie

  25. Reactions

    0:45 "...after you do, he'll never bone ya."

  26. dcwtl

    Best version by far

  27. Ursa Minor

    Just love the arrangement and orchestration

  28. Stuggy Pren


  29. Matthew Gales

    are we just gonna ignore the background vocal and organ harmonization happening at 0:36? whew that was beautiful

  30. jennas bb

    Hal David is an all time great songwriter and way underrated, but Bobbie Gentry's is the only version that shows this song at it's best, and I think it hit #1 in the UK.

    Moya Walker

    Spot on mate

  31. ImYour Hero

    Better than tom jones version

  32. Colin Goodes

    Bloody brilliant song and sang so well :)

    Cockney Rebel

    The lyrics alone are heartbreaking enough, but the sadness that she sings the song with tears ya to bloody pieces. It's like ya can actually feel the pain she's in, and it's a pain that most of us have probably gone through at one time or another.

    Cockney Rebel

    I know I definitely have- (a lot more times than what I care to remember, thank you very much!)

  33. Brian Carnival

    "What do you get when you kiss a guy
    you get enough germs to catch pneumonia
    after you do he'll never phone ya" One of the best rhymes ever in a song !

    Max Hall

    "What do you get when you kiss a guy
    you get enough germs to catch pneumonia
    after you do he'll never bone ya" - Heard that on a "misheard lyrics video. I worked out it was "phone" but I can still hear bone ya.

    Aussie/ Thai Lifestyle with David & Noi

    I always thought she sings “after you do He’ll never Bone ya” 😂😂😂

  34. Elmore van dodewaard

    The perfect song.

  35. taddyd1

  36. Don Howson

    Good gritty voice remember in 1969 great year & sorrow

  37. Rob M

    Bacharach and David were such great song writers and this is by far the best version of this one , such a voice , great memories.

  38. Imelda Ennis

    I was 9... My parents would say shush when I'd sing it... Great song... Gorgeous voice ☺️🎤❤️

  39. Malc The talc

    Have always loved this record since I first heard it as a child. Iconic 60s number.

  40. blachubear

    First time I heard this version I thought it was Dusty Springfield singing this. To my surprise the DJ said the name Bobbie Gentry.


    To stiff for Dusty. Bobbie can't swing.

    Meann Recio

    Same! I can't get enough of this version because she sounded so much like Dusty here.

  41. Dean Leech

    ulverston victoria music lessons. with Mr. Dean. Paul Leech

  42. Ian Watkins

    Bobbie,s version is the best.

    michi veritas

    Dunno... Really like this too but Deacon Blue's version is truly beautiful.

    Ian Watkins

    Thats a fair point, good call!

  43. Yer Dar

    Here from Peter Kay 😂

    john graham

  44. mike sull

    I'm sorry Elvis Costello take on this is no were as good as Bobby there

  45. mike sull

    all the words to this lovely song are true .love it and I'm a man .love boby

  46. MotherFuckerJones

    What do you get when you fall in love?
    A great mess of shit with a rubber glove.

  47. Jamie Valentine

    After you do he will never born yur

  48. Rod Craven

    Heard it first via a Music For Pleasure compilation done by a studio cover artist and then found the original on an LP from Australia called 20 Explosive Hits. Prefer this version to the Dionne Warwick one, especially with the piano backing and drums.

  49. Alan Bean

    BEST VERSION IN EXISTENCE. Also, that sweet bass.

  50. 666MikeRochip


  51. SwiSS Octogon Templars

    Beautiful song 🎵🇬🇧 better than the satanic 😈 LGBT chart music industry ⭐

  52. Bruce Scott

    Heard it first on Armed Forces Radio in Svn 1969.


    j adore cette chanson .quelle voix !!

  54. brian goodwin

    48 secs in A bit naughty when she says " after you do he'll never bone ya"

    Janet Chandler

    brian goodwin ‘phone ya’


    @Janet Chandler its a Peter Kay reference


    after i saw Peter kay,,I swear she says 'bone ya' its something you cant 'unhear'.

  55. Ezer Radcliffe

    superb voice and one hot girl

  56. funkmasterjee

    I remember hearing this on TV or the radio  in 1969 when I was 4 yrs old !!

  57. Ann Jacobs

    I was born in 1969 and don't remember this version. Then one Saturday night around 1992 or 1993 I heard it on a random AM station
    while washing the car and never forgot it. This is a really nice version. Steve J.

  58. TheKodiakbare

    I like her voice, but she looks as if she's been on the Razzle.

  59. Paul Vinall


  60. Twaddles McGee

    This is a much prettier softer version that Dionne Warwick's the backing vocals lush arrangement and THAT VOICE! Perfect

  61. Niall Murtagh

    Only a a few thousand clicked onto this.. I guess there are not so many of us now who remember 1969 -- one of the best years for pop music.


    ... or

    Douglas Coates

    I remember it, and still here.


    I was born in 1992 and I love this song, if that means anything. :)

    Leon Erin

    Im here with you bro and remember the year well .I was still at school and this song is very much part of my childhood and the memorys of that time to . Appreciate that im still here to talk about it .Bless you


    Niall Murtagh I wasn’t born for another 31 years so certainly don’t remember it, just love good music!!

  62. aandy51x

    was always a favourite song of mine brings back so many memories of my teenage years great times

  63. shmuli9

    I could do without the fake eyelashes (they are SO obvious), but she is a gifted singer and looker, eh.


    The beauty of the song was a given. I know false eyelashes were in style then (I WAS alive, after all), but I'm sure even then the idea was to make them LOOK real. This is sort of like having blonde hair and wearing a brown "fall" (a sort of fake ponytail).

    micheline tilton

    shmuli9 I'm sure she could do without you, too


    @Twaddles McGee
    It was not the style for people her age. She was waaay to Vegas for the youth market. Joan Baez meets Tammy Wynette didn't really fly in the 60s or 70s, hence a very limited career.

    Twaddles McGee

    @taddyd1 youth market has always had lousy taste look at the shit they make popular

    Don Howson

    Good old songs never die memorys dont die just get better when you think about em the past is history but hey the future is a mystery yeah

  64. john e Lawler

    lovely song & lady
