One and Only Vole

about

This song is about true love as experienced by a prairie vole. Voles are monogamous - they mate for life, which is rare in the world of mammals. We often study them to try and understand our own human love bonds. This song answers the question, is love just a chemical reaction? It doesn't matter - what you feel is real!

lyrics

The moment I first caught your scent I knew
I wanted to addict myself to you
We spent the day together making crazy rock n roll
Now you are my one and only vole

You are my one and only vole
You are my one and only vole (2x)

Now every time your odor hits my brain
My dopamine receptors go insane
Love has taken over and I think I've lost control
Now you are my one and only vole

You are my one and only vole
You are my one and only vole (2x)

Science says our bond is made with chemistry
Oxytocin’s all it’s fashioned of
I just know that you’re the only vole for me
And chemicals don’t mean I’m not in love

So let us build a burrow filled with pups
I’ll stick around and help you raise them up
I am bonded to you babe cause that’s the way I roll
You know you are my one and only vole

You are my one and only vole
You are my one and only vole (2x)
