"Love Is Just the Great Pretender" as written by and Declan John/brown Barclay....
When we're alone together at night
You say you love me, that's all right, i understand
Well, if i thought you were telling the truth
Like a rocket my heart would hit that roof
Life would be so grand

But the language of love is like a fine card trick
One flashy illusion which is over too quick
That is seemed second hand

Love is the great pretender
Love is the great pretender
Love is the great pretender
Love is just the great pretender
L-O-V-E


I've played this scene so many times
Sweet violins and corny lines, a hollywood remake
Being left on the shelf is not such a bore
Preferable for to being smashed on the floor
Life's only true break

And when I choose a partner now I'm a lot more wise
And don't confuse love with the colour of their eyes
My usual mistake

Love is the great pretender
Love is the great pretender
Love is the great pretender
Love is just the great pretender
L-O-V-E



Don't want no bone, it's Billy on that saxophone



And don't forget the animalettes

Love is the great pretender (L-O-V-E)
Love is the great pretender
Love is the great pretender
Love is the great pretender
Love is the great pretender
Love is the great pretender
Love is the great pretender
Love is just the great pretender
