The Lyrics

The book of love—
just who did write
this book? You’ll find,
it’s not light!

The book of love
is filled with many more
words than the old King James.
It has chapter and verse
all about what guys and dames
when they’re really enraptured do.
Love with all their hearts, too.
How strongly they’re mated,
mated so one is two…
never an unwound crew.

But from the book of love:
If two should break
up; look: in time, up they’ll make.

It’s fine to write
of matters of the heart
and romance that brings us bliss.
So make a lover’s vow—
let it not be ex libris.

Hold on to that tome as you woo
Try not to break up, you
be strong and stay mated.
Make up if you should do
something that breaks up two.

Wonder who wrote,
wonder who wrote
that tome you tote.
