I, I went off to the right Without saying good goodbye Where does it go from here? Is it down to the lake I fear? Ay ay ay ay ay ah Ay ay ay ay ay ah
Then I call Ring, ring, ring, ring La la love plus one Ring, ring, ring, ring When I call love
Give love some soul If I may be quite so bold Where does it go from here? Is it down to the lake I fear? Ay ay ay ay ay ah Ay ay ay ay ay ah
Then I call Ring, ring, ring, ring La la love plus one Ring, ring, ring, ring When I call love Love plus one

Edward Taylor from Dorset, UkSome time ago, Nick Heyward was interviewed on British TV and said that the "down to the lake I fear" line referred to the Falklands War (the South Atlantic was allegedly the "lake" in question). However, given that that conflict was in 1982 and I believe Love Plus One was recorded in 1981, I have my doubts about that!
Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn June 26th 1982, Haircut 100 performed "Love Plus One" on the ABC-TV program 'American Bandstand'... One month earlier on May 6th, 1982 it entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #89; and on August 1st it peaked at #37 (for 1 week) and spent 17 weeks on the Top 100... On the day of the sextet's appearance on 'Bandstand' the song was at #49 on the Top 100... This was their only record to make the Top 100 in the U.S.A.; but in their native England they had four Top 10 records between 1981 and 1982.
Kayla from Winnipeg, MbI love this song! It's super catchy, I love Nick's song writing! I just love Nick in general, seriously, how adorable was he??! He's still really good looking nowadays, too! The whole "Pelican West" album is amazing! <3
Dirk from Nashville, TnWhere does it go from here, indeed.... This song is crazy catchy. The sax is irresistable. The vocals draw you in. That voice-in-a-can that pops up before the refrain is one of those things you wait for when the song comes on. ...But honestly -- what in the world were these lads trying to communicate here? Down to the lake I fear? Nick, baby -- give us a noun or something to work with.
Alma from Laredo, TxI have always loved this song. Takes me back when you could turn on MTV and it be playing. i wish I could see the lyrics and continue to reminese.
