Love Is Something If You Give It Away

February 12, 2018 by

For your Valentine’s Day, here are some joyous four-year-olds belting out an old Malvina Reynolds tune. If you follow this advice, there is not much more to say.

Love is something if you give it away,
Give it away, give it away.
Love is something if you give it away,
You end up having more.
It's just like a magic penny,
Hold it tight and you won't have any.
Lend it, spend it, and you'll have so many
They'll roll all over the floor.
For love is something if you give it away,
Give it away, give it away.
Love is something if you give it away,
You end up having more.
So let's go dancing till the break of day,
And if there's a piper, we can pay.
For love is something if you give it away,
You end up having more.
