Lyrics

I spend my life on bullet trains
And planes and boats and cars;
I've seen the wonders of the world
And gazed upon the stars;
I thought that I had seen all that
There was on earth to see;
Then you walked in and pulled the rug
Right out from under me;
Who'd have guessed I'd be so impressed;
I've seen the Pyramids of Giza
The tilty Tower in Pisa;
But, baby, they just don't do what you do
'Cause you're larger than life
Some say the blue Atlantic
Is really quite gigantic;
Well, maybe
I just don't see what they do
'Cause you're larger than life
Zeus and all his thunder
Liked to get his kicks;
With the spell I'm under
I don't need parlour tricks;
I've seen the falls of Niagara
The theorum of Pythagoras
But, baby, they just don't do what you do
'Cause you're larger than life

(instrumental bridge)
Zeus and all his thunder
Liked to get his kicks;
With the spell I'm under
I don't need parlour tricks;
Well, this worldly Nova Scotian
Will give you her devotion
So if you've got the notion
Let's cause a real commotion
Let me give you a clue
If it was just me and you
You'd see with only us two
That, baby, we could be larger than life
