In love, about twenty-five
She was eight years older
The 70's, love free for all
They say age ain't nothing but...

Picture them, bride and groom
Their spring in bloom blossomed into
A baby in the oven,
A baby in the oven

Find your dreams in the oven, in the oven
Find your zeal in the oven, in the oven

In fall he picked another flower
A fickle mind changes heart so fast
Hers to stone, which rarely changes
Her father told him: "Just give your all"

The longing lasted and dreams dissolved
The truth sank, his hopes drowned
He could not stand the heat
And put his head in the oven.

Find your relief in the oven, in the oven
Hide your fears in the over, in the oven
Burn your grief in the oven, in the oven

Dreams are made in the oven, in the oven
And dreams taken away in the oven, in the oven.
