The Wages Of Love

Muriel Day

(Ireland 1969)

Look before you leap right into love, my friend 
It cannot be bought so very cheap, my friend 
Love that makes you laugh, love that makes you cry 
Before you really understand it
It can make you live, it can make you die 

There will be bridges to be crossed
And there'll be teardrops to be lost 
Or you will have to pay the cost
Just wait and see, oh yeah 
There are many rainbows on the way
Days are maybe bright or maybe grey 
So when you fall in love you pay the wages of love 
The wages of love, the wages of love 

Just take my advice, don't be a fool my friend 
When you fall in love, you go to school my friend 
Lessons must get learned, fingers must get burned 
Before you really understand it
Love is very nice if you pay the price 

There will be bridges to be crossed
And there'll be teardrops to be lost 
Or you will have to pay the cost
Just wait and see, oh yeah 
There are many rainbows on the way
Days are maybe bright or maybe grey 
So when you fall in love you pay the wages of love 
The wages of love, the wages of love 

There will be bridges to be crossed
And there'll be teardrops to be lost 
Or you will have to pay the cost
Just wait and see 
There are many rainbows on the way
Days are maybe bright or maybe grey 
So when you fall in love you pay the wages of love 
The wages of love, the wages of love
