The Book of Love

After The Book of Love by The Magnetic Fields

 

The book of Love is long and boring,

No one can lift the damn thing.

It’s full of charts for meditations

And instructions for dancing.

But I love when You point out pages for me,

And You can make me read anything.

 

The book of Love has music in it,

In fact that’s where music comes from.

Some of it is quite transcendental,

Some of it is just really dumb.

But I love it when You make me sing,

And You can make me sing anything.

 

The book of Love is long and boring,

And written very long ago.

It’s full of flowers and heart-shaped boxes,

And things we’re all too young to know.

But I love it when You give me things,

And You can give me anything.

Oh I, I love it when You give me things,

When will You, when will You give me a wedding ring?
