Lyrics LOVE IS THE REASON
YOU WERE BORN.
LOVE WAS THE GLEAM
IN POPPA'S EYE.
PEOPLE SUDDENLY MEET,
PEOPLE SUDDENLY FIT,
PEOPLE SUDDENLY HIT,
AND BROTHER,
THAT'S IT!
PERSONALLY...
LOVE IS A KICK
RIGHT IN THE PANTS.
LOVE IS THE ASPIRIN
YOU BUY.
IF YOURE FLAPPING
YOUR FINS,
IF YOU'RE CLIMBING
A WALL,
THERE MUST BE A REASON
FOR IT,
WHAT IS THE REASON
FOR IT?
LOVE IS THE REASON
FOR IT ALL.

LOVE IS THE NIGHT
YOU CAN'T RECALL.
LOVE IS THE EXTRA DRINK
YOU DRANK.
LOVE'S A SHOT
IN THE ARM,
LOVE'S A POKE
IN THE RIBS,
BUYIN' BOTTLES
AND BIBS,
AND FILLIN' UP
CRIBS.
OBVIOUSLY...
LOVE IS
AN OLD ESTABLISHED TRAP,
TEN MILLION SUCKERS
WALK THE PLANK,
IF YOU LAND
ON YOUR TAIL
EVERY TIME
THAT YOU FALL,
I CAN'T SEE A REASON
FOR IT,
WHO NEEDS A REASON
FOR IT?
LOVE IS THE REASON
FOR IT ALL.

ALL NIGHT A-TEASING
IN THE HALL,
HALLWAYS ARE LOVELY
FOR A BRAWL,
CALL IT THE SEASON,
I SAY LOVE IS THE REASON
FOR IT ALL.
