lyrics

I didn't want to speak with you
It's driving time for the things you do
I fell in love, but so what?
Now I feel down in the dumps

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, that is love

Algernon
I was writing on the company wall
I was searching for the truth of it all
Algernon

I couldn't stand to wait for you
I hung up and you did, too
Now I wish you were here
Just one thing I'd tell you dear:

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, that is love

Algernon
You're killing me with all your carrying on
You can't expect that we would always be young
Algernon

I tell you pretty baby
Come back to me my lady

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
That is love

Algernon
I was writing on the company wall
I was searching for the truth of it all
Algernon

Algernon
You're killing me with all your carrying on
You can't expect that we would always be young
Algernon
