"I Won't Say (I'm in Love)" is the romantic love song from the 1997 film Hercules. It was performed by Susan Egan as Megara, featuring Lillias White, Vanéese Y. Thomas, Cheryl Freeman, LaChanze, and Roz Ryan as the Muses, who serve as backup vocalists. The song was composed by Alan Menken with lyrics by David Zippel.

The song is mainly about Meg trying to deny her growing romantic feelings toward Hercules and is trying to remind herself why falling in love is a bad idea. However, the Muses are trying to convince her that no matter how many times she tries to deny it, they know that that she is indeed falling in love with Hercules and are trying to get her to confess her feelings.

A pop version of the song was recorded by singer, Belinda Carlisle, in 1997, for international releases only. In 2005, The Cheetah Girls recorded the song for DisneyMania 3.

This song was included on the VHS tapes Disney Sing Along Songs: Honor to Us All and Disney Princess Sing Along Songs - Once Upon a Dream.

Lyrics

Megara:
If there's a prize for rotten judgment,
I guess I've already won that
No man is worth the aggravation
That's ancient history
Been there, done that

Muses:
Who d'you think you're kiddin'?
He's the earth and heaven to ya
Try to keep it hidden
Honey, we can see right through ya
Girl, you can't conceal it
We know how you feel
And who you're thinking of

Meg:
No chance, no way
I won't say it, no, no

Muses:
You swoon, you sigh,
Why deny it? Uh-oh

Meg:
It's too cliché
I won't say I'm in love

I thought my heart had learned its lesson
It feels so good when you start out
My head is screaming "Get a grip, girl!"
Unless you're dying to cry your heart out
(Ohhh...)

Muses:
You keep on denying
Who you are and how you're feeling
Baby, we're not buying
Hon, we saw you hit the ceiling
Face it like a grown-up
When you gonna own up
That you got, got, got it bad?

Meg:
No chance, no way
I won't say it, no, no

Muses:
Give up, give in
Check the grin; you're in love

Meg:
This scene won't play
I won't say I'm in love

Muses:
You're doin' flips, read our lips:
You're in love!

Meg:
You're way off base, I won't say it
Get off my case, I won't say it

Muses:
Girl, don't be proud
It's okay, you're in love

Meg:
Ohhh…
At least out loud,
I won't say I'm in love

(Muses: Sha-la-la-la la la, awee)

No chance, no way, I won't say it, no, no

If there's a prize for rotten judgement,
I guess I've already won that
No man is worth the aggravation
That's ancient history,
Been there
Done that

Who'd ya think you're kidding?
He's the earth and heaven to ya
Try to keep it hidden, honey, we can see right through ya
Girl, ya can't conceal it
We know how you're feelin, who you're thinking of

No chance, no way, I won't say it, no, no
You swoon, you sigh
Why deny it, uh oh
It's too... cliché
I won't say I'm in love
(Oooooh ooooh oooh)

I thought my heart had learned its lesson
It feels so good when ya start out
My head is screaming, "Get a grip, girl!
"Unless you're dying to cry your heart out!"
Ooooh oooh

You keep on denying
Who you are and how you're feelin
Baby, we're not lying, hon, we saw ya hit the ceiling
Face it like a grown up
When ya gonna own up that ya got, got, got it bad?

Whoa
No chance, no way, I won't say it, no, no
Give up, give in
Check the grin, you're in love!

You're doing flips, read our lips you're in love
You're way off base
I won't say it
Get off my case
I won't say I'm in love

I won't say I'm in love
I won't say I'm in love

No chance, no way, I won't say it, no, no
Give up, give in
Check the grin, you're in love!
The scene won't play
I won't say I'm in love

You're doing flips read our lips you're in love
You're way off base
I won't say it
Girl, don't be proud, it's OK, you're in love

No chance, no way, I won't say it, no, no
Give up, give in
Check the grin, you're in love!
The scene won't play
I won't say I'm in love

Ooooooh
At least out loud
I won't say I'm in... love

Sha la la la la la, awee
