The man who only lives for making money
Likewise the man who works for fame
That time won't erase his name
The fact is, the only work
Is the kind that is for girl and boy meant
That's the best work of all, if you can get it
Holding hands at midnight
Nice work if you can get it

Sighing sigh after sigh
And you can get it if you try
Just imagine someone
Where two hearts become one

And then taking that vow
And if you get it, won't you tell me how
Just imagine someone
Where two hearts become one

And then taking that vow
And if you get it, won't you tell me how
