LIFE CAN HAVE MEANING

I arrived in what they call a city
And went to a place called "hotel"
And got myself what is gener'lly called a room
I turned on the well-known T.V.
And watched what they call a show
Till midnight when they signed off with just a tune

Then I walked down a thing called "side-walk"
And went in a place called "cafe"
And told them that it didn't matter
Long as it resembled food
And when I was drinkin' a drink that is known as coffee
She walked in and all at once I knew...

Life can have meaning, life can have meaning
Life can have meaning, whenever you're in love

Now I'm walking down the Brownsville Boulevard
to the Brownsville Imperial Palace Hotel
In a quaint little, lovely Brownsville, U.S.A.
I know I won't be able to sleep
Though I'm staying in the Executive suite
'Cause I'm meeting her tomorrow at the Brownsville cafe

Boy, the moon is bright tonight
Not a cloud anywhere in sight
And it's warm and the folks all speak
When they pass by
What a wonderful thing it is
That just one little kiss
Can open your eyes and make you realize...

Life can have meaning, life can have meaning
Life can have meaning, whenever you're in love
