It's the wonder of the world,
It's a rocket to the moon;
It gets you high, it gets you low,
But once you get that glow!

Here's to my best romance,
Here's to my worst romance,
Here's to my first romance,
Ages ago!

Here's to the boys I've kissed,
And to complete the list,
Here's to the boys who said,

Love, love, hooray for love!
Who was ever too proud, say, for love?
Make this a night for love,
If we have to fight, let's fight for love!

Some sigh and cry for love,
Ah, but in Paree they die for love!
Some waste away for love;
Just the same, hooray for love!

It's a rocket to the moon,
With a touch of "Clare De Lune"!
It gets you high, it gets you low,
But once you get that glow, oh!

Some trust to fate for love,
Others have to take off weight for love!
Some go berserk for love,
Lovers even go to work for love!

Sad songs are sobbed for love,
People have their noses bobbed for love!
some say we pay for love,
Just the same, hooray for love!
