"So You Think You're In Love"

Heard the below song for the first time in Marshall's last weekend. I LOVED it, embarrassingly, since it was a department-store piped-in song! I loved it so much in the store that when I got home I looked it up... turned out it was by Robyn Hitchcock, whose albums "Element of Light" (1986) and "Globe of Frogs" (1988) I'd owned and played constantly back when I was a college kid... "So You Think You're in Love" is from 1991.



So you think you're in love
Yes, you probably are
But you wanna be straight about it
Oh, you wanna be straight about it now

So you think you're in love
Yes, you probably are
But you wanna be straight about it
Oh, you wanna be straight about it now

Can you imagine what the people say? Can you?
But the silent majority is the crime of the century
You know it

Are you sure that it's wise?
No, you probably ain't
You don't wanna be faint about it
Oh, you shouldn't be faint about it now

By the look in your eyes
No, you probably ain't
But you shouldn't be faint about it
Oh, you gotta be faint about it now

What is love made of?
Nobody knows
What are you afraid of?
Everyone knows
It's love
It's love

So you think you're in love
Yes, you probably are
But you wanna be straight about it
Oh, you gotta be straight about it now

So you think you're in love
Yes, you probably are
But you wanna be straight about it
Oh, you gotta be straight about it now

So you think you're in love
Yeah
