Better than cream cheese and bagels

Better than honey on bread

Better than champagne and pretzels

Better than breakfast in bed

Better than chili rellenos

Better than chocolate e'clairs

Better than hothouse tomatoes

Better than fresh Bartlett pears

Better than dining a la carte

Or simply gastronomic art

Better than anything except being in love

Better than making a million

Better than being a queen

Better than oil wells and gold mines

Better than pastures of green

Better than finding a horseshoe

Better than losing your head

Better than anything ever thought of

Better than anything ever said

Ah, ha, better than singing right out loud

Or being, ha, spotted in a crowd

Better than (better than anything) anything except being (except being) in love

(Musical Interlude)

Better than elephants, elephants are dancing

Better than clowns on parade

Better than peanuts and popcorn

Better than pink lemonade

Better than rides on the midway

Better than seals blowing horns

Better than men shot through cannons

Better than fresh ears of corn

Ah, better than balancing on a wire

Or watching tigers jump through fire

Better than anything except being in love

Better than driving 'round the park

Or watching fireflies after the dark

Better than anything except being in love

Hey, Diana?

Yeah?

Are you sure that love is even better than shopping?

Well, there's a little sale on late floor up at Barneys but it's still better

Oh, come on, come on

What about that thirty percent sale at Jimmy Chu's

And SaK's Fifth Avenue Friends and Family Day? Ha?

Still better

Well, maybe close second

Very close second

Better, more better

Better, better, better
