Don't you know I'd work for you, I'd slave for you
If that isn't love, it will have to do

Prove my love, dear, and it's worth it for you
Until the real thing comes along
With all the words, dear, at my command
I'll always love you, baby, come what may

Tear those stars down from the sky for you
Until the real thing comes along
Walk on burning coals for you
If that ain't love, it will have to do

I'd even punch out Mr. T for you
Until the real thing comes along
There's not a thing that you can't ask of me
If you want the moon or a lavaliere

Lay my little body down and die for you
If that ain't love, it will have to do
