There's the wonderful love of a beautiful maid,
And the love of a staunch true man,
and the love of a baby that's unafraid---
All have existed since time began.
But the most wonderful love, the Love of all loves,
Even greater than the love of a Mother,
Is the infinite, tenderest, passionate love
Of one drunken bum for another.
One other love
'twould be of note
and then I'll cease to bother,
merciful and nurturing,
the healing love
of the FATHER.
