Love Is Lighter Than Air

Original version (3:54)

Summer, summer, summer
Slowly turned into fall;
Me and my baby doll
Never went to the beach.
Somewhere, somewhere, somewhere
Was a place we could run
On the sand with the sun
Always just out of reach.
Somewhere sunny summer’s
Marching to a different drummer, singing:
“Summer, summer, summer’s
Gonna turn into fall.
You and your baby doll
’D better go to the beach

’Cause love is lighter than air,
It floats away if you let go.
Love is lighter than air,
It rises through the falling snow.”

A crime, crime, crime,
Sin and illness’s time.
Neither reason nor rhyme
Can obstruct his bad dance.
The nasty little swine
Slipped us mickeys in wine
Wove his hair into twine
And then tied up our hands.
We’re forced to watch him wriggle
And endure his fulsome giggle and his
“Mime, mime, mime,
Unforgivable mime!
Our one chance is to climb
Into blimps of romance

’Cause love is lighter than air,
It floats away if you let go.
Love is lighter than air,
It rises through the falling snow.”

Love is lighter than air,
It floats away if you let go.
Love is lighter than air,
It rises through the falling snow.
Love is lighter than air,
It floats away if you let go.
Love is lighter than air,
It rises through the falling snow.
