Hands up everyone who thought that Welshman Tom Jones had the original version be honest! The full title is "(It Looks Like) I'll Never Fall In Love Again" and should not be confused with Burt Bacharach's "I'll Never Fall In Love Again" which is a totally different number, dating from 1968. Lonnie Donegan, the great British skiffle hero, was born in Scotland in 1931. He enjoyed huge succes in the 1950s and early part of the 1960s. He died in November 2002. Although this number is credited to Lonnie Donegan and Jimmy Currie, the tune is similar to a 1950's recording by the Sammy Kaye Orchestra, called "Wanderin'" (singer Tony Alamo), which itself is based on what is described as a "traditional number." Indeed, "Wanderin'" had earlier been recorded on Columbia 1585-D by Vernon Dalhart in 1928!

I'm never gonna fall in love again

I've been in love so many times
And I thought I knew the score
But Now you've treated me so wrong
I can't take any more

And it looks like
I'm never gonna fall in love again
Fall in love, Fall in love, Fall in love,again

All those things I heard about you
I though they where only lies
When I caught you around in his arms
I just broke down and cry
And it looks like i'll never gonna fall in love again

I gave my heart so easily, and cast aside my pride
When I saw you in his arms baby
I broke up all inside

Elvis Presley



I've been in love so many times
I thought I knew the score
Now you've treated me so wrong
I can't take any more

And it looks like
I'm never gonna fall in love again
Fall in love, I'm never gonna fall in love
I mean it, I mean it, fall in love again

I gave my heart so easily, cast aside my pride
When I saw you in his arms baby
I broke up and cried

And it looks like I'm never gonna fall in love again
That's what I'm sayin' Fall in love,
No, I'm never gonna fall in love
Please don't make me fall in love again

That's why I,no, I'm never gonna fall in love
Please don't make me, don't make me, fall in love
again..........
