LyricsEdit

Ain't no big thing
To wait for the bell to ring
Ain't no big thing
The toll of the bell
Aggravated - spare for days
I troll downtown the red light place
Jump up bubble up - what's in store
Love is the drug and I need to score
Showing out, showing out, hit and run
Boy meets girl as beat goes on
Stitched up tight, can't break free
Love is the drug for me

Oh love is the drug

Late that night I park my car
Stake my place in the singles' bar
Face to face, toe to toe
Heart to heart as we hit the floor
Lumber up, limbo down
The locked embrace, the stumble round
I say go, and I say yes
Dim the lights, you can guess the rest

Oh love is the drug (backup vocals [repeated once with Blue & Vera singing as well])
Oh love is love, is the drug
love is the drug
Is the drug
Is the drug
Is the drug is the drug

Love is the drug
The drug is love

Oh oh catch that buzz
Love is the drug I'm thinking of
Oh oh can't you see
Love is the drug, got a hook in me
Oh oh catch that buzz
Love is the drug I'm thinking of
Oh oh can't you see
Love is the drug for me

Ain't no big thing
Ain't no big thing

Can't you see
Love is the drug for me

Oh love is the drug
Oh love is, love is, love is the drug

Drug, drug

The Drug is love
