Well, I used to have the notion
I could swim the length of the ocean
If I knew that you were waiting for me
I used to have the notion
I could swim the length of the ocean

I'd plumb the depths
Of every sea for you
I'd escape from my chains
And I'll reach out for you

Maybe I'm in love with you
Maybe, maybe I'm in love with you
I had to contact you
Found out I was in love with you

I had to contact
That's it, that's the law
That's the whole of the law
The whole of the law

PERRETT, PETER ALBERT NEIL
