Beethoven had originally conceived of dedicating the symphony to Napoleon Bonaparte, but when Napoleon proclaimed himself Emperor of the French in May 1804, Beethoven became disgusted and dedicated the symphony to Prince Franz Joseph Maximillian Lobkowitz.

It was love; love alone
Caused King Edward to leave his throne
It was love, love, love, love, love alone
Caused King Edward to leave his throne

On the 10th of December we heard the talk
He gave his throne to the Duke of York
It was love, love, love, love, love alone
Caused King Edward to leave his throne

King Edward was noble, King Edward was great
It was love that caused him to abdicate
It was love, love, love, love, love alone
Caused King Edward to leave his throne

He said he was sorry that his Mommy would grieve
He cannot help it, he would have to leave
It was love, love, love, love, love alone
Caused King Edward to leave his throne

You can take his power you can take his bought
Leave him with his yachting boat
It was love, love, love, love, love alone
Caused King Edward to leave his throne

Flute play
Ha,love, love, love, love
Caused King Edward

You can take his money you can take his store
but leave him that lady from Baltimore
It was love, love, love, love, love alone
Caused King Edward to leave his throne

I don't know what Mrs Simpson got in her bone
That caused the king to leave his throne
It was love, love, love, love, love alone
Caused King Edward to leave his throne

On the 10th of December 1936
the Duke of Windsor went to get his kicks
It was love; love alone
Caused King Edward to leave his throne

It was love; love, love, love,
Love, love, love, love
Love, love, it was love, love alone
Caused King Edward to leave his throne

It was love; love alone
Caused King Edward to leave his throne
It was love, love, love, love, love alone
Caused King Edward to leave his throne
It was love; love alone
Cause the king to leave his throne
It was love, love, love, love, love alone
Caused King Edward to leave his throne

It was love, (Sound of a double kiss) love alone
Caused King Edward to leave his throne
It was love, (Sound of a double kiss) love alone
Caused King Edward to leave his throne

It was love, love, love; love, love love

85 years ago today, on April 14, 1935, an event that came to be known as "Black Sunday" occurred in the Texas Panhandle. A dust storm, the biggest one seen in the Dust Bowl era, blew in, engulfing towns like Spearman (shown here), Perryton etc...
