Love Song (Duet)

I just called to say I love you
Don't talk to me about love

I want to know what love is
Love is the drug

Dance me to the end of love
What's love got to do with it?

Will you love me tomorrow?
I'd do anything for love (but I won't do that)

All you need is love
I'm not in love

Don't go breaking my heart
If you love someone set them free

Where is the love?
Love is all around

  1. Haha, ace! 😁🖤

    1. I was short of time…anyone notice it is only 14 lines too, I wonder?

      1. Maybe 🤔 I was too busy trying to name all the artists (only two I didn’t get straight off) 👍🖤

      2. (To my eternal shame) I had to look up ‘Will you still love me tomorrow’ – I know the song, obviously, but couldn’t recall the group. Also, I didn’t get ‘Don’t talk to me about love’ – in my defence I was only 3 on its release! 😉🖤

    2. Ace were rubbish, weren’t they?

    fun fun love song!! now someone needs to put it to music..

    1. Thank you Vidya! I set myself a challenge, thinking it would be simple. Several drafts later and I’m glad you liked it.

    Cool medley, Chris! Love that each couplet seems to contain a question or statement and a direct response to it.🍃

    1. Thank you, Romana! This wasn’t just a random list, I promise you 😊

        It didn’t seem random at all!

    This poem read like the ‘mixed tape’ I had hoped the one I had a crush on (in university) would’ve made for me:) Loved it. Cheers.

    1. Well, Arti, be my guest splice it together!

        That’s an idea–cheers:)
