“Isn’t It Kinda Fun?” LYRICS

Pat:
Maybe you’ll never be the love of my life,
Maybe I’m not the boy of your dreams,
But isn’t it kinda fun to look in each other’s eyes,
Swapping romantic gleams?

Maybe you’re not a girl to have and to hold,
Maybe I’m not a boy who would stay,
But isn’t it kinda fun carousing around the town,
Dancing the night away?

Isn’t it kinda fun holding hands,
According to a sweet and corny custom?
Isn’t it kinda fun making vows,
Admitting that we both intend to bust ’em!

Maybe we’re out for laughs, a girl and a boy,
Kidding across a table for two,
But haven’t you got a hunch that this is the real McCoy
And all the things we tell each other are true?

Margy:
I’m not a girl for sentimental tripe,
I never go for the Romeo type.

Pat:
Over a dewy-eyed Juliet
No one has seen me drool yet.

Margy:
I don’t say our hearts are tied
By love’s eternal tether.

Pat:
But using words less dignified,
Isn’t it kinda fun to be together?

Maybe we’re out for laughs, a girl and a boy,
Kidding across a table for two,

Both:
But haven’t you got a hunch that this is the real McCoy
And all the things we tell each other are true?
