What is this thing called love?
This funny thing called love?
Just who can solve its mystery?
Why should it make a fool of me?

I saw you there, one wonderful day,
You took my heart, and threw it away;
That's why I ask the Lord, in heaven above,
What is this thing called love?

I saw you there, one wonderful day,
You took my heart, and threw it away;
That's why I ask the Lord, in heaven above,
What is this thing called love?
