Love Is Strange    (1956)

Love, love is strange (yeah, yeah)
Lot of people take it for a game

Once you get it
You'll never wanna quit (no, no)
After you've had it (yeah, yeah)
You're in an awful fix

Many people
Don't understand (no, no)
They think loving (yeah, yeah)
Is money in the hand

Your sweet loving
Is better than a kiss (yeah, yeah)
When you leave me
Sweet kisses I miss

[MICKEY:]
Sylvia...

[SYLVIA:]
Yes Mickey?

[MICKEY:]
How do you call your lover-boy?

[SYLVIA:]
Come 'ere lover-boy!!

[MICKEY:]
And if he doesn't answer?

[SYLVIA:]
Ohh lover-boy!

[MICKEY:]
And if he STILL doesn't answer?

[SYLVIA:]
I simply say
Baby,
Oohh baby
My sweet baby
You're the one

[TOGETHER:]
Baby,
Oohh baby (yeah, yeah)
My sweet baby
You're the one
