Love Words

(parody of "Love Hurts" by Nazareth)
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story: the three Greek words for "love" in the New Testament aren't what you'd call the ideal theme for a rock song. But the parody leaped into my mind, so I had to do it. This was the second song I ever recorded, and it is not a showcase for my singing voice.


First word, eros, in Greek it was.
It means romance stuff. It's real enough,
But it will not remain, it will not remain.
Feelings come and go, cause a lot of strain.
Love words, ooh-ooh, love words.

Next word to know is phileo,
Love the way brothers do, and close friends too.
If this is what you've got, if this is what you've got,
Thank the Lord for friends who know this word or not.
Love words, oo-ooh, love words.

Look in First Corinthians;
A word is in chapter thirteen.
That's the love that God has given.
The word is agape.

His love for me and you, His love for me and you
Sent His Son to die, sent the Spirit too.
Love words, oo-ooh, love words.

Solo: like 1st 2 lines of verse

I know God's word is true, I know God's word is true.
Let these words apply, you'll be glad you knew
Love words, oo-ooh, love words.
Oo-ooh, love words.
Oo-ooh...
