Why Talk About Love?

    (Pollack, Mitchell)

Transcribed from vocals by the Andrews Sisters, recorded October, 1937,
From The Andrews Sisters, ProArte Digital, CDD 506.

Why talk about love when there's so much to be done?
Words can't reveal the way I feel; they never ring true.
Why talk about love when a kiss is so much fun?
Why waste the time on words when I'm with you?

The wisest men will always recommend
That actions speak louder than words,
But what's the use? We've no excuse
Let's say no more, nothing more.
Night has just begun; the moon is high above;
When there's so much to be done, why should we talk about love?

Why talk about love when there's so much to be done?
Why should we talk about love, when a kiss is much more fun?
Why talk about love?

Why should we waste time, when we know that you are mine?
Why should we always waste time, when a kiss is so sublime?
La-la-la-la-la-la-do-do-do, la-la-la-la-la-la-do-do-do.

The wisest men will always recommend
That actions speak louder than words,
So what's the use? We've no excuse
Let's say no more, la-la-la-da-da nothing more.
Night has just begun; the moon is high up above,
When there's so much to be done, why should we, should we, should we talk about love?

The moon is oh, so bright,
The stars are out tonight,
Come on, honey, don't you take your time;
La-da-do-da, la-da-do-da, tell me you're mine!

The wisest men will always recommend
That actions speak louder than words,
Oh, but what's the use? We've no excuse;
Let's say no more, nothing more.
Night has just begun;
And we're having our fun,
Come on, honey,
The moon's above,
Why should we always, always talk about love?
La-da-do-de-dang
Talk about love?
