"Love Is Strange" as written by and Winfred Lovett....
Love
Love is strange
Lot of people
Take it for a game
Once you get it
You never want to quit, no no
After you've had it
You're in an awful fix

Many people
Don't understand, no no
They think loving
Is money in the hand
Your sweet loving
Is better than a kiss
When you leave me
Sweet kisses I miss

Sylvia
Yes, Mickey
How do you call your lover boy
Come here, lover boy
And if he doesn't answer
Oh lover boy
And if he still doesn't answer
I simply say
Baby, oh baby
My sweet baby, you're the one
Baby, oh baby
My sweet baby, you're the one

    General CommentI think the song's about how people get into love for different reasons: the feeling is addictive, some like the game of it, and others do it for security (lovin is money in the hand). The singer is saying look people get into love for all sorts of reasons but I love you for love's sake and as being the "one."

    General CommentI think this song is basically saying how difficult love is. I mean think about it? There are players in the game, there are lovers, people addicted to love and people who don't have any love. I think this is talking about how once you've had love, you dont ever want to loose it. Love IS strange!
