  • Lyrics
  • This song covers the entire history of a generic romance in two minutes and forty-one seconds. There's the meeting, the initial conversation, the falling in love, and the proposal. Life is often much more complicated, but not when sung by a smooth Doo-Wop group like The Five Satins. >>
