Streisand, Barbra - Love Is Only Love Lyrics




[Dolly:]
Horace Vandergelder, Mrs. Horace Vandergelder
Just leave ev'rything to me
Though it wont be like the first time
How can it be like the first time?
But Why does it have to be?
Don't look for shooting stars
For love is only love
You touch and still you touch the proud
Don't listen for those bells
For love is only love
And if it's love you've found
Your heart won't hear a sound
And you hold his hand
You only hold his hand
The violins are all a bluff
But if you're really wise
The silence of his eyes
Will tell you
Love is only love
And it's wonderful enough
Without the shooting star
Without the sounds of bells
Without the violins
Love is wonderful enough!

    Horace, Horace Vandergelder
    Mrs. Horace Vandergelder
    Just leave everything to me
    Though it won't be like the first time
    How can it be like the first time?
    But why does it have to be?
    Don't look for shooting stars
    For love is only love
    You touch and
    Still you touch the ground
    Don't listen for those bells
    For love is only love
    And if it's love you've found
    Your heart won't hear a sound
    And when you hold his hand
    You only hold his hand
    The violins are all a bluff
    But if you're really wise
    The silence of his eyes
    Will tell you
    Love is only love
    And it's wonderful enough
    Without the shooting star
    Without the sounds of bells
    Without the violins
    Love is wonderful enough

    Ed Miller

    If you knew her sister, you'd know her name is *Roslyn,* not *Rosalind.* And by the way, Tom Jones is still alive.
    *Take your meds.*

  3. richard fouts

    This song and Love With All the Trimmings are two of her most exquisite recordings ever.

  4. RICHARD BERNSTEIN

    i love this song written by Jerry Herman, and Barbra was given the chance to sing it in the movie...

  5. walej

    First of all, lovely. Re: the lyrics, though: it never struck me before, but "the silence of his eyes"? Of COURSE eyes are silent. The lack of sight about his mouth? The absence of scent-detection in his ears?

    Ed Miller

    Boy, are you *stupid.*

  6. Steve Hinnenkamp

    The number is fake as 3 dollar bill.
    Included because of stars ego. Disaster.

    Gordon Hall

    Fuck you.

    Chris N

    Thanks for straightening us all out. Your opinion just blows this whole "disaster" out of the water. And, if you think"the song was included because of the star's ego," you have no knowledge of how Gene Kelly ruled his movies.

  7. Michael S

    I don't care what people say she was to young to play Dolly for me all you need her is to sing and she makes the movie and character. She is the best singer in the world

  8. Gordon Hall

    superb control of a nearly-supernatural gift. Brava, bravissima.

  9. teresa calvert

    does anyone know where I can find the actual scene ?

    mca1218

    +teresa calvert It follows the "Elegance" number in the film. A long pan from the Harmonia Gardens goes to Dolly's apartment window where she is brushing her hair, getting primped for her big scene, I presume. Streisand's most beautiful moment in the film.

    eBay....😊

  11. Brian Eduardo

    One of my favourite songs... apparently it was originally written for Mame, but not used and so was brought it to Hello Dolly... the movie only I think.... lovely lovely song and so true...

  12. Rachel DeRosier

    So true, real love is down-to-earth and not all fairytales. :)

  13. Meredith A.

    I used to listen to this soundtrack incessantly!!!  when I was about 11, eek, back in 1978 or thereabouts.  I ADORED this song and still do.  Takin' me right back there!  Thanks for posting.  

    Peppermint Snowdrift

    Thank you for discussing your memories, Meredith. I really enjoy hearing other stories about musicals, because I like learning more about what people did during the past.

    I didn't discover this movie until about the mid-1990s, when I was in high school, but I LOVED it! The mid-1990s were a time during which I was first discovering truly awesome musicals like "Hello, Dolly!", "Sweeney Todd", and, believe it or not, freaking "West Side Story"! Would ya' believe that I had never really become acquainted with THAT musical until then?

    I was lucky to have parents who were willing to spoil me rotten with the VHS versions of "Hello, Dolly!" and "WSS" once I had discovered those musicals. I was ALSO able to see a local, touring production of "Hello, Dolly!" when CAROL CHANNING was performing as Dolly during the mid / late 1990s! I feel so lucky to have been able to see that performance, even though I will always love Streisand in that role; I don't know if anyone ELSE in my Drama class ever saw that musical....with Carol Channing in it!

  14. Steve Sobot

    What an artist, Barbra Streisand has the most brilliant voice... and what a fantastic song.

  15. Shubael1809

    Peerless. At this stage in her singing career she had, arguably, the finest singing voice ever known.

  16. Ana Vieira

    Such a beatiful song... I have got tears in my eyes! I love this musical soooo much! I wish I have something like Dolly and Horace! kkkkk

  17. STREISANDLAND

    i'm so glad you found it - and enjoyed it!

  18. Eleanor Greer

    I have been searching for this song online for some time now....so good to hear it, thank you :)

  19. ecire2008

    This is really an amazingly written song by Jerry Herman. Barbra's rendition of course makes you listen to and feel the true meaning of the words.

  20. Shubael1809

    lol RedHaired Chick .. if you're a fountain, I'm a waterfall. It just doesn't get any better.

  21. STREISANDLAND

    i'm so glad you enjoyed it!

  22. b56123

    Amazing! thank you very much!!!! It seems to be quite difficult to see Hello Dolly on youtube for some reason, so a wonderful treat to find this jem!

  23. STREISANDLAND

    i'm so glad you enjoyed it!

  24. dwa22204

    Thanks for posting! My favorite song from "Dolly!".
