Love is funny or it’s sad or it’s quiet or it’s mad
It’s a good thing or it’s bad, but beautiful!
Beautiful to take a chance and if you fall, you fall
And I’m thinking I wouldn’t mind at all
Love is tearful or it’s gay, it’s a problem or it’s play
It’s a heartache either way, but beautiful!
And I’m thinking if you were mine, I’d never let you go
And that would be, but beautiful I know.
