The Greatest Love Lyrics

Everyone stopped as she walked into the room (Isn't this the greatest thing)
Everyone own up and nobody can touch her (Isn't this the greatest thing)
Punch the clock, keep boxing clever (Isn't this the greatest thing)
You'll be young enough forever (Isn't this the greatest thing)

Isn't this the greatest,
Isn't this the greatest thing
Isn't this the greatest thing
The greatest thing

I heard some new convention said we can't afford to feel affection ('Cos it's the latest thing)
In and out of matrimony, never once removed the Sony ('Cos it's a status thing)
So girls like that above described are not to be so easily bribed (With a white frock and a ring)
Punch the clock and in time you'll get pulled apart, if you're married on paper and not in your heart

But I won't be told that life with the one you love is sordid, just because some authority says you can't afford it

And it's the greatest thing (4x)

Oh it's the greatest,
Isn't this the greatest thing
Isn't this the greatest thing
The greatest thing

Since nights were long and days were olden, woman to man has been beholden
But since then times have been changing
She sends back his tribute of a rose and says this ring is better suited for the nose he's always fingering
I punch the clock and it's OK
I know a girl who takes my breath away

And it's the greatest
Isn't this the greatest thing
Isn't this the greatest thing
The greatest thing (2x)

Isn't this the greatest
Isn't this the greatest thing
Isn't this the greatest thing
The greatest thing (3x)
