You could be a sinner, you keep getting thinner
Went swimming after dinner and sank like a beginner
Don’t care what the neighbor saw, didn’t have to call the law
We were playing quick draw, pulled a chord from my jaw
You can feed the alligator
Just don’t make me sadder later

If I lose your beautiful love I’ll simply lose my mind
If I lose your beautiful love I’ll simply lose my mind

From the day I knelt we have had a mind melt
Played the cards that we were dealt, a life without a seatbelt
Smoke until our lungs are black, calling in the medevac
Popped all the bubble-wrap I knew this was a booby-trap
I’m on needles and pins
Somebody cue the violins

If I lose your beautiful love I’ll simply lose my mind
If I lose your beautiful love I’ll simply lose my mind

We’ve got a beautiful love
We’ve got a beautiful love

No pink bouquet romantic cliche
But we’ve got a beautiful love
No church bell ringing or bluebird singing
But we’ve got a beautiful love
Singing in the nightclub, swinging in a hot tub
Hey! we’ve got a beautiful love
Now I’m taking you home to our furry little pleasure dome

Back in New Amsterdam we didn’t even give a crap
Never really had a plan bigger than a subway map
Now you’re getting shampooed wearing those paper shoes
I can’t even transfuse because of bad tattoos
We had an understanding
Neither one of us would be the last one standing

If I lose your beautiful love I’ll simply lose my mind
If I lose your beautiful love I’ll simply lose my mind
If I lose your beautiful love I’ll simply lose my mind
If I lose your beautiful love I’ll simply lose my mind

We’ve got a beautiful love
We’ve got a beautiful love
