(by Elvis Presley)

Wise men say only fools rush in,

But I can’t help falling in love with you.

Shall I stay? Would it be a sin?

Like a river flows gently to the sea

Darling so it goes, some things were meant to be.

Take my hand. Take my whole life, too.

For I can’t help falling in love with you.

No, I can’t help falling in love with you.
