"Swell" as written by Charles Strouse and Richard Maltby....
Take it or leave it, she said
Leave it at best
I don't believe in no coincidences
She talks so quiet, can't even tell
She moves those hips, those lips,
It makes me swell with love
She moves those hips, those lips,
It makes me swell
With love, with love
Oh hell, with love

Supposed centre of intellectualism
If one can call it that
I'm sure it isn't
Quiet spread across the grounds
Death dirties the pulpit now
Side with right
Wrong we'll be
Take a knife and please
Take a seat I'd say

Take it or leave it, she said
Leave it at best
I don't believe in no coincidences
She talks so quiet, can't even tell
She moves those hips, those lips,
It makes me swell with love
She moves those hips, those lips,
It makes me swell
With love, with love

Take that all from me, oh and
Try to call me free oh and
Strip me all I know and
Then turn to let me go
False ripples in all the intellectual pools
Fathom the facts that turn talking heads on their stools
Schools corrupt the mind
And waste my precious time, oh
Where's the value, value when you just don't need that kind
I'd say
Where's the value, value when you just don't need that kind?

Take it or leave it, she said
Leave it at best
I don't believe in no coincidences
She talks so quiet, can't even tell
She moves those hips, those lips,
It makes me swell with love
She moves those hips, those lips,
It makes me swell
With love, with love

Carry my kindness, everywhere
Carry my strength in its success we'll share
Bode to carry only one son
Sworn to follow
And his will be done
Amen, amen, amen
He said all men

    General Commenti thought i ought to comment because, well, i fancy this song :) its otherwise ordinary, heavily repeated chorus is nicely complimented with unique vocals and a poppy rhythm guitar to create a lovely sound. oh, and i savvy the disbelief in coincidences. and yeah, to hell with love.
