Words of love, so soft and tender,
Won't win a girl's heart anymore.
If you love her,then you must send her
Somewhere where she's never been before.
Worn out phrases and longing gazes
Won't get you where you want to go. (No!)
Words of love, soft and tender,
Won't win her...

You oughta know by now (you oughta know by now).
You oughta know (you oughta know);
You oughta know by now - (you oughta know by now)
Words of love, soft and tender,
Won't win her anymore.

You oughta know by now (you oughta know by now).
You oughta know (you oughta know);
You oughta know by now - (you oughta know by now)
Words of love, soft and tender,
Won't win a girls heart anymore.

If you love her, then you must send her
Somewhere where she's never been before.
Worn out phrases and longing gazes
Won't get you where you want to go.
Words of love, soft and tender,
Won't win her anymore, anymore.
