I am dejected, I am depressed
Yet resurrected and sailing the crest
Why this elation, mixed with deflation?
What explanation, I am in love

Such conflicting questions rise
Around in my brain
Should I order cynanide or order champagne?

Oh, what is this sudden jolt?
I feel like a frightened colt
Just hit by a thunderbolt, I am in love

I knew the odds were against me before
I had no flair for flaming desire
But since the gods gave me you to adore
I may lose but I refuse to fight the fire

So come and enlighten my days and never depart
You only can brighten the blaze that burns in my heart
For I am wildly in love with you
And so in need of a stampede of love

I knew the odds were against me before
I had no flair for flaming desire
But since the gods gave me you to adore
I may lose but I refuse to fight the fire

So come and enlighten my days and never depart
You only can brighten the blaze that burns in my heart
For I am wildly in love with you
And so in need of a stampede of love
And so in need of a stampede of love
