A Sentimental Date with Perry Como
 
If We Can't Be
The Same Old Sweethearts
( We'll just be the Same Old Friends )
 
If we can't be the same old sweethearts,
then we'll just be the same old friends!
 
For I want someone like you 
just to tell my troubles to, 
my happiness, on you, 
it all depends!
 
For I've known you too long to forget you 
and my old dream of love never ends! 
Though I know you can't be mine, 
we will meet from time to time 
and we'll just be the same old friends!
 
< instrumental verse >
 
For I've known you too long to forget you 
and my old dream of love never ends! 
Though I know you can't be mine, 
we will meet from time to time 
and we'll just be the same old friends!
