  • Venus must have heard my plea
    She has sent someone along for me

    I have waited a long long time
    For somebody to call mine
    And at last he's come along
    Baby oh nothing can go wrong
    We meet every night at eight
    And I don't get home till late
    I say to myself each day
    Baby oh long long live love
    Mmm

    True love must be the greatest thing
    I know now why singers sing
    Of the moon and stars above
    How I love to be in love
    We meet every night at eight
    And I don't get home till late
    I say to myself each day
    Baby oh long long live love

    Now of one thing I'm more than sure
    Since love come I don't want more
    Than to kiss him every night
    Makes everything alright
    We meet every night at eight
    And I don't get home till late
    I say to myself each day
    Baby oh long long live love
    Mmm

    We meet every night at eight
    And I don't get home till late
    I say to myself each day
    Baby oh long long live love
    Mmm
