Better than sailing at midnight  Better than diving for pearls  Better than skiing in Aspen  Better than feeding the squirrels  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

Do you know, being in love

 Better than four sets of Dizzy  Better than Count Basie's band
 Better than Rollins and Coltrane  Better than being on the stand  Better than Ella Fitzgerald  Better than Miles' latest news

 Better than Bill Evans' ballads  Better than Joe Williams' blues  Better than hearing Lady Day
Or checking in at Monterey  Better than anything except being in love

Do you know, being in love
It's a circus 

 Elephants dancing
 Clowns on parade  Better than peanuts and popcorn  Fresh lemonade
 Better than rides on the midway  Better than seals blowing horns  Better than men shot from cannons  Better than fresh ears of corn
 Better than balancing a wire
Or watching tigers leap through fire
 Better than anything except being in love
