"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, Vaneese 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 feelings toward Hercules and is trying to remind herself why falling in love is bad. 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. In 2005, The Cheetah Girls recorded the song for DisneyMania 3.

This song was included on the VHS Disney Sing-Along Songs: Honor to Us All.

Lyrics Edit

Megara: 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

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


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, ahh)
