Left one in the drizzlin' rain
Found one on the mornin' plane
Layin' out his well-known line
Bought her some gin - that did her in
Now their makin' love behind the occupied sing

Chorus:
Just a livin' example of love in decline
Lookin' so hard and so little time
Goin' ninety to nothin' and flyin' stone blind
Just a livin' example of love in decline

Miyama hotel disco bar
He asks if she's a movie star
Her eyes light up they're going far
No time for a room - it happened too soon
Now they're makin' love in her rent-a-car

Chorus:
That's just another example of love in decline
Lookin' so hard and so little time
Goin' ninety to nothin' and flyin' stone blind
Just a livin' example of love in decline

Red-eyed on a midnight flight
He's a little tired but she looks just right
He asks for dark so she hits the light
Engines whine - seats recline
They're makin' love till the mornin' light

Chorus:
Just a shinin' example of love in decline
Lookin' so hard and so little time
Goin' ninety to nothin' and flyin' stone blind
Just a livin' example of love in decline

Just a livin' example of love in decline
Just a livin' example of love in decline
