Mama's & Papa's - For The Love Of Ivy
I never thought I'll try for the love of Ivy;
I never thought I'll cry for the love of Ivy.
Somebody hide me from the love, the love of Ivy.
It takes up all of your time to fall in love with Ivy.
(Here cometh Ivy...Ivy)

If I gathered all my means (all my means)
In a pile beside me (in a pile),
It wouldn't why help to fill my dreams (fill my dreams)
For the love of Ivy.
Money cannot buy me---
Buy for me the love of Ivy.
I'll not the kind of guy who falls in love with Ivy.

If I gathered all my means
In a pile beside me,

For the love of Ivy.
Somebody hide me,
From the love, the love, the love, the love...
It takes up all of your to fall in love with Ivy.

For the love of (Ivy)...for the love of Ivy, yeah.

    General CommentMy parents listened to this song when I was little, and I really loved it. When I was listening to it recently, it struck me how obsessive and unhappy the lyrics of this love song were, and now I think it is actually a song about addiction, and the love of "Ivy" is actually the love of IV drugs.
