Here are the lyrics to “I Think We’re Alone Now” by Tommy James and The Shondells:

“Children behave
That’s what they say when we’re together
And watch how you play
They don’t understand

And so we’re running just as fast as we can
Holdin’ onto one another’s hand
Tryin’ to get away into the night
And then you put your arms around me
And we tumble to the ground and then you say

I think we’re alone now
There doesn’t seem to be anyone around
I think we’re alone now
The beating of our hearts is the only sound

Look at the way
We gotta hide what we’re doin’
‘Cause what would they say
If they ever knew

And so we’re running just as fast as we can
Holdin’ onto one another’s hand
Tryin’ to get away into the night
And then you put your arms around me
And we tumble to the ground and then you say

I think we’re alone now
There doesn’t seem to be anyone around
I think we’re alone now
The beating of our hearts is the only sound

I think we’re alone now
(Alone now)
There doesn’t seem to be anyone around
I think we’re alone now
(Alone now)
The beating of our hearts is the only sound

I think we’re alone now
(Alone now)
There doesn’t seem to be anyone around
I think we’re alone now
(Alone now)
The beating of our hearts is the only sound”
