Love is like a hydrant, it turns off and on Like some friendships when your money's gone Love stands in with the loan sharks when your heart's in pawn If I had some strong wings like an aeroplane Had some broad wings like some aeroplane I would fly away forever never to come again For love oh love oh loveless love Has set our hearts are gold-less gold From milk-less milk and silk-less silk We are growing used to soul-less souls Such grafting times we never saw That's why we have a pure full law In everything we find a flaw Even love oh love oh loveless love (Musical Interlude) Just to fly away from loveless love ***** Extra opening verse as recorded by Katharine Handy Lewis: Love is like a gold brick in a bunco game Like a banknote with a bogus name Both have caused many downfalls Love has done the same ****** (Contributed/Transcribed by Bill Huntley - August 2005)
