Love is the ritual

(Hey) little sister
She got a lot of time she got a lot of money
Don't you know that aint enough
(Hey) pretty thing
All dressed up for the main attraction
Like a baby doll looking for love

And she doesn't need a reason
She just hears a calling to the wild
(Hey) yeah

God gave man the breath of life
To grow up strong to take a wife
To change the world and love is the ritual
You learn to walk & talk & laugh & cry
Work your fingers to the bone 'til the day you die
And above it all love is the ritual

Na na na-na, na na na-na
Na na


There's a method to this madness
And a message calling to the wild
(Hey) huh

God gave man the breath of live
To grow up strong to take a wife
To change the world and love is the ritual
You learn to walk & talk & laugh & cry
(He) gave you heart and soul till the day you die
And above it all love is the ritual

Come on, dance, little sister, little sister wants to dance
All night looking for a true romance
When in a black leather jacket walks little brother
To rock her world, to be her lover

So signal all the children
Send a message calling to the wild


Na na na-na, na na na-na
Na na, love is the ritual
Na na na-na, na na na-na
Na na, love is the ritual (love is the ritual)
Na na na-na, na na na-na
Na na, love is the ritual (love is the ritual)
