Lyrics to Four Letter Love

Lyrics to the song Four Letter Love as recorded by Bryan Ferry.


One across you break girl
Two downs asleep
Three days a week you're laughing
Before you weep
I got your number from up above
Four letter love
Four letter love
Down to the letter
Oh you'd better count on love

Once I was so lonely
Twice as bad as blue
Three times I burnt my fingers
Still it put the shine on you
Now living's easy
Fit like a glove
Four letter love
Four letter love
Turn on the power
With your fower(sic) letter love

So listen all you lovers
Tell you what I do
Just say you will
And count the kill
And I'll put it all on you
One two three
Four letter love
Four letter love
Don't waste a minute
It was a minute
Before you fall for love
Four letter love
Four letter love

Four Letter Love
