Pretty Woman Lyrics
'Yes, there is a difference. (Do you want to change the lyrics?)
Those lyrics are a way of saying, "I hope I'm not going overboard.'
No, I don't want to change the lyrics but what's the difference between the two 'will you pardon me' and 'won't you pardon me'?
go overboard - to do or say something that is too extreme for a particular situation: (Longman dictionary) I hope politicians will not go overboard in trying to control the press.

Thanks for the reply.
