Oscar and Pete

By Oscar Hammerstein II, from The Sound of Music (1959)

Sixteen Going on Seventeen

A bell is no bell 'til you ring it
A song is no song 'til you sing it
And love in your heart wasn't put there to stay
Love isn't love... 'Til you give it away

By Pete Townshend, from The Who's Who's Next (1971)

Love Ain't for Keeping

Layin' on my back
In the newly mown grass
Rain is coming down
But I know the clouds will pass
You bring me tea
Say "the babe's a-sleepin'"
Lay down beside me
Love ain't for keeping
