"Love" as written by and Bert/gabler Kaempfert....
The heart of a wife,
but she won't unlock it.
All dressed in white,
and face in the blankets

The nights with the boys,
the razor in pockets.
The drives to work that don't ever drive by.

It's a four letter word,
and who'd ever thought that,
a four letter word,
would be so hard to spell out.
and our hearts skippin' beats,
on edges of seats.
We'll take time when it's up,
but give up when it's down

Freakin' out about love, 'bout love.
About love, 'bout love.
No, not love.
But love, about love.
'But love, no

We're too cool for apologies
And we wouldn't have fell
Our emotional policies
And lookin' glass selves
It's a realization that we all need to find
It's all in our heads when we're changing our minds

About love, love.
About love, 'bout love.
'Cause its not love, love.
About love, 'bout love, no.

Or if we're not gonna mind
What's locked in our chest
Then I'll spend all my time dodging your's
I guess
'Cause life's lost anatomy is a hole in my heart
A five cent society post part

And at the blink of an eye
we'll get the courts involved
And if you don't like her eyes you just get 'em annulled.
'Cause the Justice of the Peace, losing it's power
Honeymoon sweets to hotels by the hour

We take time when its up,
But give up when its down.

And It's not love, love.
Not love, it's not love.
Not love, love.
Not love, not love.
No no
Not love, oh
Love,
Love,
Not love, 'cause it's not love.
Love, not love.
It's not love, no, it's not love.
Love, it's not love.
Not love, no, it's not love.
Love, not love.
Not love.

    General CommentFirstly, there's a bunch of wrong lyrics here.
    This is SUCH a great song though.
    Its about how people don't put as much effort into relationships anymore (the Justice of the Peace, losing it's power/ honeymoon suites* to hotels by the hour)
