Life Is Just A Chemical Reaction
11/23/88 - This song from my college retro-rock opera "Rick Cosmos and the Green Things From Mars!" appears in the one-man show “Laundry Night.”

As I walked into the barroom, she caught my eye
There was chemistry between us right away
But my tongue was tied, I didn’t know what to say
And she was looking at me…
And she said, “Life is just a chemical reaction
Fa la la la la la la la la la la la
Life is just a chemical reaction
Under suitable conditions you can fall in love.”

Then she winked an eye and threw a smile at me
Said “Would you like to come upstairs to my la-bor-a-to-ry?”
I broke out in a sweat, thought maybe I’d better leave
But she was looking at me…
So I said, “Life is just a chemical reaction
Fa la la la la la la la la la la la
Life is just a chemical reaction
With the proper combination you can fall in love.”

Then we went upstairs and she
Locked the door and she
Dropped the key in her sarong
She sat down on the bed and she
Slipped off her jacket and we
Talked
The whole night long
I think I’m in love!

Life is just a chemical reaction
Fa la la la la la la la la la la la
Life is just a chemical reaction
Under suitable conditions
With the proper combination
There are certain situations
When you fall in love!
