Tonight it's love by the fire; my mind goes out on the prowl.

If I didn't love you I'd hate you. I'm playing your stereogram.
Singles remind me of kisses, albums remind me of plans.
Tonight it's love by the fire. The wind plays over the coals.
Passionate looks are my fancy. But you turn the look into stone.

If I didn't love you I'd hate you; cocoa mugs sit side by side.
It's time to poke at the fire. But it's not tonight, looks I find
Taking a bite on a biscuit, the record jumps on a scratch.
Tonight it's love by the fire, the door of your love's on the latch.
If I, if I, if I, didn't, didn't, didn't, Love you, love you, love you...
