I’m trying to get to first base

With that little girl I love

But my technique is much too weak

The game is getting rough

 

Strike 1, she almost broke my heart

Strike 2, she had the nerve

And when I wasn’t looking

She struck me out with a curve

 

REFRAIN: That’s how love is

That’s how love’s supposed to be

That’s how love is

Hey boys, take it from me

That’s how love is

That’s how love’s supposed to be

That’s how love is

Hey boys, take it from me

 

Put on the gloves, jumped in the ring

And I heard the first bell sound

When she put her arms around me

I knew I won the first round

 

The tighter she held me

I knew I was gonna last

When I waved at a girl at ringside

She knocked me flat on my ….  (ooooh)

 

REFRAIN: That’s how love is

That’s how love’s supposed to be

That’s how love is

Hey boys, take it from me

That’s how love is

That’s how love’s supposed to be

That’s how love is

Hey boys, take it from me

 

Ooh, Jermaine, you’re a little order

Give me some philosophy

How can I win the game of love

And make ‘em come running to me?

 

Listen Michael, you win a little bit, lose a little bit

It’s all in the game, [I see]

It doesn’t matter, if you win or lose

It all turns out the same

 

REFRAIN: That’s how love is

That’s how love’s supposed to be

That’s how love is

Hey boys, take it from me

That’s how love is

That’s how love’s supposed to be

That’s how love is

Hey boys, take it from me

 

Sing it to me, sing it to me

Sing it to me, sing it to me

 

REFRAIN: That’s how love is

That’s how love’s supposed to be

That’s how love is, Michael [I see]

That’s how love is

That’s how love’s supposed to be

That’s how love is
