Well, I fell in love at eleven years old
with the nicest girl in school,
All tongue-tied and bashful and painfully shy,
I hoped that she loved me too;
Every day after school I'd go stand at her gate,
cheerfully braving the cold,
Hoping to get just one glimpse of the girl
that I loved at eleven years old.

Love at eleven will live on forever
in memories worth more than gold.
Can anyone truthfully say he's forgotten
his love at eleven years old?

Well, I saved up my money to buy a big heart
full of candy for Valentines day,
Proudly I marched to her front door
and rang with the heart I was giving away;
She opened the door and her mouth couldn't speak,
but I saw the love in her eyes,
And I knew as I silently handed my heart to her
this was her greatest surprise.

Love at eleven will live on forever
in memories worth more than gold.
Can anyone truthfully say he's forgotten
his love at eleven years old?

Time was the thing that made wedding bells ring,
we took the big step in our lives,
And I was so happy, all dressed for the wedding,
the day she became my young bride;
Something between us kept us together,
a love that never grows cold,
She knows I love her and I will forever
like the kid at eleven years old.

Love at eleven will live on forever
in memories worth more than gold.
Can anyone truthfully say he's forgotten
his love at eleven years old?
Can anyone truthfully say he's forgotten
his love at eleven years old?
