Blacker
The Ballistic Brothers Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

We hold hands in the movie show, so they say that we′re old fashioned
Or we stroll beneath the silvery moon
And we carve our initials in the old oak tree
That's old fashioned, that′s the way love should be
We enjoy sitting side by side, in the booth in the ice cream parlor
Where we play the nickelodeon
And we dance when we hear our favorite melody
That's old fashioned, that's the way love should be
It′s a modern changing world, everything is moving fast
But when it comes to love I like what they did in the past
I′m the kind who loves only one, so the boys say I'm old fashioned
Let them laugh, honey I don′t mind




I've made plans for a wedding day for you and me
That′s old fashioned, that's the way love should be
