Better than finding a horseshoe, Better than losing your head, Better than anything thought of, Better than anything said. Better than singing right out loud Or being spotted in a crowd. Better than anything Except being in love! Better than cream cheese on celery, Better than, mmm, honey on bread, Better than french-fried potatoes, Better than, aah, breakfast in bed. Better than strawberry shortcake, Better than chocolate eclairs, Better than hothouse tomatoes, Better than fresh bartlett pears. Better than dining a la carte Or sampling gastronomic art. Better than anything Except being in love! Better than "April In Paris", Better than "Memphis In June", Better than "Autumn In New York", Better than "Old Avalune". Better than "Drifting And Dreaming", Better than "Castles In Spain", Better than "Smoke Rings" or "Stardust", Better than "September Rain". Better than "Dancing In The Dark" Or "Once More James Around The Park". Better than anything Except being in love! Better than anything Except being in love! Better than anything Except being in love!
