Love may be a gamble or a lead pipe cinch
Leave your heart in shambles, never give an inch
But however it goes, when it’s under your nose
Take a chance, take a chance, take a chance

Love may be a fire or a puff of smoke
Moment of desire or it’s go-for-broke
But however it’s planned when it closes your hand
Take a chance, take a chance, take a chance

You may be the one in a million who’s lucky to win that prize
You may be the one in a million who gets it between the eyes
Love may the ocean or a drop of rain
Choosing as emotion or a constant pain

You won’t know what you’ve got till your heart is on a spot
Take a chance, take a chance, take a chance
Love may be a double or a fate on balls
Tiny water buffalo on Niagara Falls

Though the cards in the game never turn up the same
Take a chance, take a chance, take a chance
Love may be a gravel or a two-ton truck
Regal as a sable or a Donald Duck

But you must not avoid what is basic as Freud
Take a chance, take a chance, take a chance
Love is real devotion or it’s inhumane
Still without emotion or a hurricane

So remembering this, when it’s close as a kiss
Take a chance, take a chance on love
Here’s your chance, grab that chance, here is love
