Love is the sweetest thing
What else on earth could ever bring
Such happiness to everything
As Love's old story?

Love is the strangest thing
No song of birds upon the wing
Shall in our hearts more sweetly sing
Than Love's old story

Whate'er our hearts may desire
Whatever fate may send
This is the tale that never will tire
This is the song without end

Love is the greatest thing
The oldest yet the latest thing
I only hope that fate may bring
Love's story to you

Love is the sweetest thing
