"Storybook Love" as written by and Willy De Ville....
Come my love, I'll tell you a tale
Of a boy and girl, and their love story
And how he loved her oh, so much
And all the charms she did possess

Now this did happen once upon a time
When things were not so complex
And how he worshiped the ground she walked
When he looked in her eyes, he became obsessed

Chorus:
My love is like a storybook story
But it's as real as the feelings I feel
My love is like a storybook story
But it's as real as the feelings I feel;
It's as real as the feelings I feel

His love was stronger than the powers so dark
A prince could have within his keeping
His spells to weave and steal a heart
Within her breast, but only sleeping

My love is like a storybook story
But it's as real as the feelings I feel
My love is like a storybook story
But it's as real as the feelings I feel;
It's as real as the feelings I feel

"Don't you know I love you oh, so much
And lay my heart at the foot of your dress?"
She said, "Don't you know that storybook loves
Always have a happy ending?"
Then he swooped her up, just like in the books
And on his stallion they rode away

My love is like a storybook story
But it's as real as the feelings I feel
My love is like a storybook story
But it's as real as the feelings I feel;
It's as real as the feelings I feel

    General CommentI can't believe there aren't any comments on the signature song from a classic movie.

    Still an excellent song a quarter century later.
