Sam Cooke – When A Boy Falls In Love lyrics

I've heard them say love was a wonderful thing
Something you couldn't hide on a shelf
But to me they no longer have to explain
Because I know for myself

He awakens each morn with a smile on his face
When a boy is in love
& the world to him is a beautiful place
When a boy is in love

He's up & he's gone, there's no breakfast for him
'Cause he lives on the love of his sweet little gem
The days are through, though it's not very long
Before he must talk to his girl on the phone
That's how it is when a boy falls in love

His girl's voice on the phone brings him wondrous delight
When a boy is in love
If there's been any darkness & all face from sight
When a boy is in love

He can hardly wait till the moment they meet
For he knows when he sees her, his day will be complete
When they're finally alone & he kisses her lips
The world sings a love song & his heart turns a flip
That's how it is when a boy falls in love

At the end of the day the time comes they must part
The strains of regret tear away at his heart
& late in the night, as he sleeps in his bed
Visions of her sweet charm, how they dance in his head
& before you know, he is buying a ring
To capture forever that sweet darlin' thing
That's how it is when a boy falls in love
