by Jackson 5

I'm trying to get to first base with that little girl I love.
But, my technique is much too weak, the game is gettin' rough. (Strike 1)
She almost broke my heart.
(Strike 2)
Strike 2, she had the nerve. And when I wasn't looking, she struck me out with a curve.
(You're out!)
(Chorus) That's how love is! That's how love's supposed to be! That's how love
is! Hey boys, take it from me!

Mmmm...Put on the gloves, jumped in the ring, and I heard the first bell sound.
When she put her arms around me, I knew I won the first round.
The tighter she held me, I knew I was gonna last.
When I waved to a girl at ringside, she knocked me flat on my---(Woah!)
(Chorus)
Mmmm...Jermaine, you're a little older. Give me some philosophy.
How can I win the game of love and make 'em come runnin' to me?
(Jermaine)
Listen, Michael. You win a little bit, lose a little bit...It's all in the game. (Oh, I see!)
It doesn't matter if you win or lose, it all turns out the same.
That's how love is! That's how love's supposed to be! That's how love is! Well, I know they'll take it from me!
That's how love is! That's how love's supposed to be, Michael! (I see!) That's how love is! Well, I know they'll take it from me!
(Michael)
Sing it to me! Sing it to me! Sing it to me! Sing it to me!
Ow! Ow! That's how love is! Ooh! Ooh! That's how love is!
