NEVER NO LOVE (Tom Paxton)

Nothing unusual
Everything neat
Got my life arranged
My every thought complete
No unwelcome surprises
And make myself clear
Most of all around here
Never no love

No strong emotions here
No sermons preached
We're too civilized to show
We can be reached
We've all abandoned
The childish fears and the childish glee
And most of all we agree
Never no love

Never no more the wild excitement of discovery
Never no more my God, I love her, does she care for me
Never again the depths of misery in seconds flat
Because of a single word here's an end to all that

Now everything's tidier
Under control
Every strong emotion
In its pigeon hole
We've all been through the wringer
In the hard knocks school
And we agree to the rules
Never no love

Never no more the wild excitement of discovery
Never no more my God, I love her, does she care for me
Never again the depths of misery in seconds flat
Because of a single word here's an end to all that

Now everything's tidier
Under control
Every strong emotion
In its pigeon hole
We've all been through the wringer
In the hard knocks school
And we agree to the rules
Never no love
Never no love
