I always liked whatever Al Green had to say on the subject, too.

Make you do right… love’ll make you do wrong…
make you come home early…
make you stay out all night long…

French is a good language to know. In French you can say “I love you” several different ways, including “Je t’aime” and “J’adore.”

Here in Texas most of us know the Spanish version, “Te amo.”
