(Verse:)
The men of science are a brilliant clan.
Just think, just think,
They can tell how far it is
From here to a star above.
And yet they cannot measure the safest distance
Between a woman and a man in love.
Since i cannot consult a book of knowledge
That may be lying on the shelf,
I guess i`ll have a confidential discussion
With myself.

(Chorus:) 
Be wise, be smart, behave, my heart
Don't upset your cart when she's so close
Be soft, be sweet, but be discreet
Don't go off your feet, she's so close for comfort
 
Too close, too close for comfort, please, not again
Too close, too close to know just when to say "When"
 
Be firm, be fair, be sure, beware
On your guard, take care, while there's such temptation
 
One thing leads to another
Too late to run for cover
She's much too close for comfort now
 
(Instrumental)
 
Too close, too close for comfort, please, not again
Too close, too close to know just when to say "When"
 
Be firm and be fair, be sure, beware
On your guard, take care, while there's such temptation
 
One thing leads to another
Too late to run for cover
She's much too close for comfort now
 
Too close, much too close
She's much too close for comfort now
