No you can’t hire love,
you can’t hire love It won’t get you very far,
The answer’s not found in some heaving delight,
Or a toss in the back of a car.
You can’t hire love,
no you can’t hire love,
For the moment it might feel fine,
You can lose yourself in the heat of lust,
But it’s only a matter of time.
You can hire a boat, take a fancy cruise,
Drown yourself in a bottle of gin,
You can hire someone to dry you out,
But you can’t hire someone to begin.
You can’t hire the one who brings you love,
Can’t hire an open heart,
You can’t hire feelings of happiness,
Or someone to live your part.
