There oughta be a law against breaking peoples' hearts.
There oughta be a law against tearin' them apart.
There oughta be a law against makin' people cry.
There ought be some kind of law and I will tell you why.
Take my heart and run away
Leave me longin' all the day
I do the work, you do the play
And that's just not the way.
There oughta be a law against cruelty to love.
Then you would have to change your ways,
Or you'd get thirty days.
I want to introduce a new law.
Just what kind of new law?
Well, I think...
There oughta be a law against driving me insane.
There oughta be a law against loving you in vain.
Then I'd be guilty, and you'd be too.
They'd lock us up together, just us two.
There oughta be a law to say that I must be with you.
