It's A Gas The sun's already rising
I guess that's not surprising
Because I find you mesmerizing
We're moving fast
But kissing and caressing
And watching you undressing
Shouldn't be depressing
I know at last

That it's a gas, but my best friend's waiting
So I'm going to pass, but it's so frustrating

I know how you're feeling
Oh sure, you're most appealing
But I'm not double dealing
We're moving fast
You've given me a fever
But I will not deceive her
I'm never going to leave her
I know at last

That it's a gas, but my best friend's waiting
So I'm going to pass, but it's so frustrating

The answer's no, I've got to go, well I told you so,
You won't use me
I couldn't do what you want me to, because I don't love you
You just amuse me

I hope you're not offended
Because I never pretended
I guess this night just ended
I know at last

That it's a gas, I'm not hesitating
I'm just going to pass, it's so frustrating
Because it's such a gas, but my best friend's waiting for me now.

Bubbles I don't like this any more than you
But there is something I really have to do
I've stayed much longer than I should
You want me to ring? Well did I say I would?

OK I did, but I'm not

Don't you think at least that we've
Shared one great night whatever you believe?
I'll go, while we're still feeling good
I don't want to write, there's no reason why I should

Well there is, but I'm not

Watch the bubbles floating away
I've got to get out
Got to do it this way
And nothing you can do is going to make me stay

Watch the bubbles floating away
I've got to get out
Got to do it this way
And nothing you can do is going to make me stay

And please don't think that just 'cos I'm
Here in your bed I do this all the time
Last night I already knew
I should be sorry I said some of the things I said to you

I should but I'm not

Watch the bubbles floating away
I've got to get out
Got to do it this way
And nothing you can do is going to make me stay

Watch the bubbles floating away
I've got to get out
Got to do it this way
And nothing you can do is going to make me stay
