“Book o'Love” by Peter Gabriel from Shall We Dance Soundtrack
Thar book o'love be long an' borin'
No 'un can lift ye damn thin'
It’s full o'charts an' facts an' figures an' instructions fer dancin'
But I
I love it when ye read t'me
An' ye
Ye can read me anythin'
Yonder book o'love has music in it
In fact that’s where music hails from
Some o'it be jus' transcendental
Some o'it be jus' really dumb
But I
I love it when ye sin' t'me
An' ye
Ye can sin' me anythin'
Thar book o'love be long an' borin'
An' written very long ago
It’s full o'flowers an' heart-shaped boxes
An' thin's we’re all too young t'know
But I
I love it when ye give me thin's
An' ye
Ye ought t'give me weddin' rin's
An' I
I love it when ye give me thin's
An' ye
Ye ought t'give me weddin' rin's
An' I
I love it when ye give me thin's
An' ye
Ye ought t'give me weddin' rin's
Ye ought t'give me weddin' rin's
