Love Attack

from by John Lester



I see you running from across the playground
I better brace myself or I’m gonna go down
You’re arms are raised, there’s a big smile on your face
I’m getting ready for the impact of your embrace

Love attack
Ohhh, love attack
I better watch my back
When you hit me with your love attack

You’re staring at me when I wake in the morning
My eyes just open but you give me no warning
I just can’t do this without my cup of coffee
But to get it gotta first get you off of me

Love attack
Ohhh it’s a love attack
I can’t even get out of the sack
Before you hit me with a love attack

I always thought of love was warm and gentle
Now I know it can also be mental
A kiddy cuddle would be so sweet and so nice
All you parents better listen to my advice

Get ready for the love attack
Ohhhh love attack
Your little darlings are all maniacs
They’re gonna get ya with a love attack

You ain’t lyin’ when you call me your old man
I try and stay in shape but what chance do I stand
‘gainst 50 pounds of pure grit and muscle
Just tryin’ to prove himself and get in a tussle

Love attack
Ohhh it’s a love attack
Did I hear somethin’ crack
When you hit me with your love attack

Aaaaay love attack
I’m still reeling from a love attack
And now you’re comin’ back
For another love attack
