If I gave you pretty flowers
If I took you out to dinner
If we walked home by the river
Would you invite me here?

If we sat down on the sofa
If I told you funny stories
If I moved a little closer
Would you put your hand on mine?

If I told you you were lovely
If I put my arm around you
If I touched you on your shoulder
Would you rest your hand on mine?

If I took you out to dinner
If I moved a little closer
And I touched you on the shoulder
Would you make love to me?

Ahh...
Mmm...

Oh my darling I have loved you
Since you took me out to dinner
Since we walked down by the river
Over 30 years ago

When you told me that you loved me
I hadn't felt so lovely
Since the day I decided
That I would marry you

Oh... oh oh oh...
Ooooo...

Well I took you out to dinner
And I told you funny stories
And I moved a little closer
And you made love to me

If I gave you pretty flowers
If I took you out to dinner
If we walked down by the river
La la la la la la la

Oh oh oh oh
Ooooo...

La la la la la la la
