"Elephant Love Medley" as written by Kenny Gamble, Leon Huff and Cary Grant Gilbert....
Ewan:
Love is a many splendored thing
Love lifts us up where we belong
All you need is love

Nicole:
Please don't start that again
Ewan:
All you need is love
Nicole:
A girl has got to eat
Ewan:
All you need is love
Nicole:
She'll end up on the street
Nicole:
Uhh
Ewan:
All you need is love
Nicole:
Love is just a game
Ewan:
I was made for loving you baby
You were made for loving me
Nicole:
The only way of loving me baby
Is to pay a lovely fee
Ewan:
Just one night
Just one night
Nicole:
There's no way
Cause you can't pay
Ewan:
In the name of love
One night in the name of love
Nicole:
You crazy fool
I won't give in to you
Ewan:
Don't leave me this way
I can't survive without your sweet love
Oh baby don't leave me this way
Nicole:
You think that people would have enough of silly love songs
Ewan:
I look around me and I see it isn't so, oh no
Nicole:
Some people wanna fill the world with silly love songs
Ewan:
Well what's wrong with that
I'd like to know
Cause here I go again
Ewan:
Love lifts us up where we belong
Where the eagles fly
On a mountain high
Nicole:
Love makes us act like we are fools
Throw our lives away
For one happy day
Ewan:
We can be heroes
Just for one day
Nicole:
You, you will be mean
Ewan:
No I won't
Nicole:
And I, I'll drink all the time
Ewan:
We should be lovers
Nicole:
We can't do that
Ewan:
We should be lovers
And that's a fact
Nicole:
Though nothing will keep us together
Ewan:
We could steal time
Ewan & Nicole:
Just for one day
We can be heroes
Forever and ever
We can be heroes
Forever and ever
We can be heroes
Ewan:
Just because I, and I will always love you
Nicole:
I and I
BOTH:
Can't help loving...
Ewan:
You
Nicole:
How wonderful life is now
Ewan and Nicole:
You're in the world

    General CommentThis song is beautiful. It's obviously about the first ime Christian and Satine slowly realize they love each other in that one instant. (Bohemians belive in that moment when you fall in love at first sight).
    ps. Ewan mcgregor is sooo sexy in this movie!

    General CommentThey did an awesome job mixing all of the songs. I love the movie too it is bizzarly romantic. It is so crazy to find all of these actors and actresses who sing really well like in Chicago (if you like musicals you should watch Chicago).

    General CommentPersonally, I love the song and the movie. I always thought this would be great for the Forensics team at my high school, but nooooo, they don't like it. Soup for them...

    It's blended so well, and performed so well, I wish I could just make everyone on the planet watch this movie. And love it. Right now.
