Here are the lyrics to “It’s So Easy” by Linda Ronstadt:

It’s so easy to fall in love
It’s so easy to fall in love
People tell me love’s for fools
Here I go breaking all the rules

Seems so easy
Yeah, so doggone easy
Oh it seems so easy
Yeah where you’re concerned
My heart can learn
It’s so easy to fall in love
It’s so easy to fall in love

Look into your heart and see
What your lovebook has set aside for me

It seems so easy
Yeah, so doggone easy
Oh it seems so easy
Yeah where you’re concerned
My heart can learn
Oh it’s so easy to fall in love
It’s so easy to fall in love

It seems so easy
Oh so doggone easy
Yeah it seems so easy
Oh where you’re concerned
My heart can learn
Oh it’s so easy to fall in love
It’s so easy to fall in love
It’s so easy to fall in love
It’s so easy to fall in love
It’s so easy to fall in love
Oh-ooh It’s so easy to fall in love
