This Must Be Love

(Tune: original)

Bright-eyed lady, hold on tight!
I think we're in for quite a ride.
There's bumps in store and tears to shed,
But we'll just have to see it through.
Bumps are the price for the years ahead,
And I want to spend them all with you.
So let the storm winds howl and blow,
I'm never gonna let you go!

If a lot means a little and a little means a lot,
What do you call this thing we've got?
We laugh and we giggle, we dance a lot,
The smiles are warm and the kisses are hot.
We hug each other and it feels so right,
We're out together every night.
The signs are clear and the word is out:
They say that we're in love.
Yes, I think this must be love!


Now this is not some fairy tale,
I'm telling you straight sometimes we'll wail.
But if you feel the way I do,
You'll take my hand and come along.
Well, roses are red, and violets are blue,
But we will write our daily song
With joy and sorrow, fire and rain,
Thunder and lightning all over again!

If a lot means a little and a little means a lot,
What do you call this thing we've got?
We take long walks in a gentle rain,
Then a roaring fire dries us off again.
We snuggle by the burning wood,
We cuddle and it feels so good.
The signs are clear and the word is out:
They say that we're in love.
Yes, I think this must be love!


Now I won't lead you on and I won't tell you lies,
But I'll take it hard if you say goodbye.
You're the prettiest lady that I've ever seen,
And every day I want you more.
Your lips are soft and your eyes are green,
And I love the way your keen wits soar.
You're too smart to think we'll always be glad,
But if you say no, we'll always be sad!

If a lot means a little and a little means a lot,
What do you call this thing we've got?
You saw me and just walked on by,
But I saw the twinkle in your eye.
I caught you up and I turned you round,
Your kisses made my poor heart pound.
The signs are clear and the word is out:
They say that we're in love.
Yes, I think this must be love!
