The sun is shining on the ground.
I see that nothing makes a sound.
I move invisible as air,
And choose the time to disappear.
Ah, ah, ah - I'm in love with you.
The spirit started long ago.
They've found somewhere they couldn't go.
They spend their time just looking out
For those who never share a doubt.
Ah, ah, ah, ah - they're in love with you.
The seagull, on the seeping sand,
Can die but never understand
The oil that festers on our shore
Will cast a stain forever more.
Ah, ah, ah, ah - who's in love with that?
The gnomes are moving through the night;
They sing and fiddle with delight.
And we eat Weetabix and sing
About the joys that love can bring,
Ah, ah, ah, ah - if they ever come.
The sun is shining very hard;
It melts both margarine and lard.
But, me, I only dream of you.
I hope that you are dreaming too.
Ah, ah, ah, ah - I'm in love with you.
