In the name of love she came
This foolish winsome girl
She was all decked out like a rainbow trout
Swimmin' up stream in the world
And she said "Please, please, I've lost my way
The current is too strong
In the name of love, kind sir I pray,
In the name of love"

So I took her by the hand,
She took me by the will
She was all dolled up like a blue eyed pup
Looking for something to spill
And she said "Please, please, I've lost my way
The current is too strong
In the name of love, kind sir I pray,
In the name of love"

In the name of love she came
This foolish winsome girl
She was all decked out like a rainbow trout
Swimmin' upstream in the world
And she gave one flip
Of the rainbow tip of her tail
And she swam back down

And she said "Please, please, I've lost my way
The current is too strong
In the name of love, kind sir I pray,
In the name of love
