Celebrate

amid the sound and lights
on a table with friends
everybody’s fine
they’re all drinking wine, yeah

’was there you fell in love
in a crowded room
not for the first
but for the thousandth time, yeah

and so you celebrate, you celebrate
you celebrate your love {-u-u-u-uv}
with a little house just made for two
with all the lovely things you can buy brand new
you gonna settle down just the both of you

you gonna be a good soul from now on, yeah

and when the sap first rose
back in the days
you thought you’d play it smart
the trail of broken hearts, yeah

you said they won’t find you
they won’t find you
they won’t find you
just living in a box for two

and now you celebrate, you celebrate
you celebrate your love {-u-u-u-uv}
with a little house just made for two
with all the lovely things you can buy brand new
you gonna settle down just the both of you

so when you catch an eye
and your dancing heart starts telling you the lies
you doin’ it to survive
what else could hurt so much it makes you cry

yes, you celebrate, you celebrate
you celebrate your love {-u-u-uv}
with a little house just made for two
with all the lovely things you can buy brand new
you gonna settle down just the both of you

you gonna be a good soul from now on, yeah


{oh, yeah, yeah, yeah}
