Charlie drives a brand new Mercedes Benz.
He's got another one just like it, just like all his friends.
His wife is playing tennis and his kids are off at school.
He drives home to his empty house, sits by his empty swimmin' pool.

But he's got power windows.
He's got power brakes.
He's got a power bed; push a button and it shakes.
He's got no one to talk to, tears rollin' down his face...
He ain't got the power... the power of love.

Lewis drives a beat up '69 Dodge.
Swears it's a statue of Mary keeps his car from fallin' apart.
Gracie right beside him sittin' closer than a smile.
She's got her head on his shoulder.
Oh how he loves to drive and hold her.

He's got no power windows.
Got no power breaks.
He ain't got no power nothin' but he's got what it takes.
He's got Gracie's arm around him and a smile upon his face....
He's got the power...the power of love.

No air conditioning no cellular telephone.
He goes rumblin' down the highway, listenin' to his AM radio.
One arm out the window and a smile upon his face...
Makes you wonder how he got there, 'till you see him look at Grace. (see him look at Grace)

He's got the power (ain't that the power of love)
He's got the power (aint that the power of love)

He's got no power windows.
Got no power brakes.
He aint got no power nothin' but he's got what it takes......
He's got Gracie's arm around him and a smile upon his face...
He's got the power.......of love.

Power of love (ain't that the power of love)
Power of love (ain't that the power of love)
Power of love (ain't that the power of love)
