I'm looking for information about a song. I can't find lyrics, videos, or anything else about it online. Its a bit of an up-tempo song that goes something like this:

They say that love is pleasin'
But loving is so teasin'
So here's the rhyme and reason for me love for you
Everyday I think about you
Couldn't live my life without you
I tell the whole world all about you
You're the world to me

Here's a clip of the only version of the song I've ever heard: Click here

Thanks!

I believe that the correct title is "Love is Teasing". I think it is Irish.

I first heard it sung by Isla Cameron:

For love is teasing and love is pleasing
Love is a pleasure when first it's new
But as you grow older then love grows colder
Then fades away like the morning dew

I wish I wish but all in vain
I wish I was a maid again
But maid again I never can be
'til apples grow on an orange tree
Etc etc
Can't recall the rest

BTW, I lucked into finding that and here's how--it might be helpful to some people in future.

1) Opened the link provided by the OP
2) Right clicked and then right clicked 'View page info'
3) Saw   eddiedelahunt.com    and figured maybe he had something to do with it all
4) Googled    Eddie Delahunt, " Love is pleasin' "   just as is and
5) Voila

@manners

Ok, was that reply really worse than giving a wrong answer because you didn't read the question properly and didn't process the information provided by the OP?

Jean Ritchie introduced "O Love Is Pleasin'" (learned from "an Irish girl in New York") to the USA as Side 1 Band 1 of her first Elektra (10") LP album in 1952—the opening song of her recording career.

1952 was the first time I heard the song, thanks to that record.

But I don't know whether Jean's version predated Isla Cameron's UK rendition or not.

Love is Pleasin, the traditional song, is really a fragment or perhaps better described as a commonplace or floater in other lament/love songs of the type. It gained its own recognition as a song mainly in the folk revival since WWII. Similar pieces are 'I wish, I wish, but it's all in vain' which is often coupled with the 'LIP' stanza.

However the fragments have made such an impact that the late great Roy Palmer chose it for the title as one of his many folk song anthologies. The song inside the book at p22 with this title is again just a collection of 4 floaters with the LIP stanza as the chorus. The text is from Mrs Gulliver of Combe Florey, Somerset and collected by Hammond in 1905. His tune source simply says 'popular in folk clubs which is where he first heard it. And that goes for me as well.

I can post the lyrics if you wish but they will be easily found on the Full English website. Roud 1049. The manuscript calls it 'Love is Teasing'

Ok, thanks all. So I still don't feel like my mystery has been solved. I already know of the version by Eddie Delahunt, after all, I provided it.

I suppose my question was is his version an original, or is the song 'Love is Pleasin' a traditional song (seems like most of Eddie's stuff is traditional). And, if it is a traditional song, I was hoping to find some information about it: background, lyrics, etc.

I'm having a hard time making the connection to the Jean Richie 'O Love is Pleasin' song... I think they are two different songs entirely. Any more help would be much appreciated. Thanks! I'm one step away from reaching out to Mr. Eddie Delahunt himself.

Allmusic.com which is usually pretty accurate, says "Love Is Pleasin'" is an original song by Eddie Delahunt. Here's his allmusic.com biography:
    Originally from Dublin, Ireland, singer/songwriter Eddie Delahunt immigrated to the United States in 1989 and settled in Missouri. He established a musical career by playing gigs in Kansas City and released his first CD, Travelin', in 2003. While he initially gained popularity by performing traditional Irish songs, Delahunt began writing original pieces and working them into his act; Original Sing!, his first album of original solo works, was released in 2006. It was followed in 2007 by Triur.

"Love Is Pleasin'" is on his 2006 Original Sing album.

But my guess is that his first line was inspired by the Dubliners recording of "Love Is Pleasing," which was recorded as "Love Is Teasing" by many others.

Here's Delahunt's recording: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tp6ySqGWlWE

Dolly McMahon recorded this song on Claddagh Reords, 'Dolly' CC3 1966, tho' the title is 'Love is teasing'. I checked Claddagh today but they have no results for this fine traditonal singer. Near time Ceirníní Cladaigh produced her songs on cd.
