about

The oldest kids were little when this was written so the song’s been around for a while –mostly it’s just fun to sing together, though the sentiments were always real enough

lyrics

Washed out with love for my love
What a lady
You know she knocked me off my feet
And dragged me down between the sheets
And before I could count up to ten
She’d shot me into orbit once again
Doo-doo-be-doo-doo-doo
Oh heaven’s above
Doo-doo-be-doo-doo-doo
I’m all washed out with love

Washed out with love for my love
It’s balmy weather
And there’s a lawn mower in the distance
Putt-putting across the lawn
While on the bed I rest my head
On legs that stand for all that keep me warm
Doo-doo-be-doo-doo-doo
Blue skies above
Doo-doo-be-doo-doo-doo
I’m all washed out with –
Ain’t love the sweetest thing
Makes you want to laugh out loud
Makes you everything you’re meant to be
My love’s the sweetest thing
Got to tell you it makes me proud
To think that I’m with her and she’s with me
Washed out with love for my love
Well maybe one day
I will find out just what it is
That she ever found in me
But in the meantime I’m content to lie
Beside my love and let the hours slip by

Doo-doo-be-doo-doo
All the stars up above
Doo-doo-be-doo-doo-doo
Yeah I’m all washed out with love
Doo-doo-be-doo-doo-doo
Oh heaven’s above
Doo-doo-be-doo-doo-doo
Yeah I’m all washed out with love
