  • Calling all cars
    Calling all cars

    I never thought that
    I could feel this way
    You came around and
    Brought about a change in me

    [Chorus]
    I was a typical guy
    You came along and blew my mind
    You were runnin' fast
    I was runnin' slow
    Everybody said that it would not work
    Love came and set me free
    You were standing there to rescue me
    Love caught it, we thought
    Why can't we be in love, well
    Why, it's no crime
    If I'm guilty of love
    Let me do my time
    Why, it's no crime
    Everybody needs love
    And baby (so do I)

    You never thought love
    Came so easily
    No doubt about it
    Never in your dreams, no way

    You were a typical girl
    You came along and changed my world
    I walk slow
    You walk fast
    Everybody said that it could not last
    Love came inside of me
    Never knew how good our love could be
    Love caught it, we thought
    Why can't we be in love, well

    [Chorus]

    I've spent half a lifetime
    Waiting for someone
    You say I know it was you
    They don't recommend it
    I don't understand it
    I've been reprimanded
    'Cause I'm in love with you

    Calling all cars
    Calling all cars

    You were a typical girl
    You came along and changed my world
    I walk slow
    You walk fast
    Everybody said that it could not last
    Love came inside of me
    Never knew how good our love could be
    Love caught it, we thought
    Why can't we be in love, well

    Why, why

    So do I, so do I
    So do I, so do I
    Oh so do I

    [Chorus]
