The Next Time It Happens

Lyrics By Oscar Hammerstein II  Music By Richard Rodgers

Trying to share his feelings, Doc asks Suzy what she’s looking for in a partner. Somehow, things don’t go as planned, and their opportunity at romance appears lost. Still, they both resolve to be smarter the next time they fall in love.

“The Next Time It Happens” LYRICS

Suzy:
I leapt before I looked
And I got hooked.
I played with fire and burned—
That’s how I learned.
I must admit I owe a lot to you:
From now on I will know what not to do.

The next time it happens
I’ll be wise enough to know
Not to trust my eyesight when my eyes begin to glow.

The next time I’m in love
With anyone like you,
My heart will sing no love song till I know the words are true.

“The next time it happens”—
What a foolish thing to say!
Who expects a miracle to happen every day?

It isn’t in the cards
As far as I can see
That a thing so beautiful and wonderful
Could happen more than once to me.

Doc:
The next time it happens
I’ll be wise enough to know
Not to trust my eyesight when my eyes begin to glow.

The next time I’m in love
With anyone like you,
My heart will sing no love song till I know the words are true.

“The next time it happens”—
What a foolish thing to say!
Who expects a miracle to happen every day?

It isn’t in the cards
As far as I can see
That a thing so beautiful and wonderful
Could happen more than once to me.

Suzy:
It isn’t in the cards
As far as I can see
That a thing so beautiful and wonderful
Could happen more than once to me.
