Lyrics

Is it an earthquake
Or simply a shock
Is it the good turtle soup
Or merely the mock

Is it a cocktail
This feeling of joy
Or is what I feel
The real McCoy

Is it for all time
Or simply a lark
Is it Granada I see
Or only Asbury Park

Is it a fancy
Not worth thinking of
Or is it at long last love?
