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
