Song Lyric Sunday 2/19/17 – Love Stinks

Ah, love. The theme for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday. Well seeing as how love is a mostly foreign concept to me (whatever love I experience is totally primal in nature and I’m incapable of feeling deep, passionate love) and I’m a total cynic deep down, I’m going with this classic J. Geils Band song because, let’s face it, at the end of the day love really does stink.

You love her
But she loves him
And he loves somebody else
You just can’t win

And so it goes
Till the day you die
This thing they call love
It’s gonna make you cry

I’ve had the blues
The reds and the pinks
One thing for sure

(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

Two by two and side by side
Love’s gonna find you yes it is
You just can’t hide
You’ll hear it call

Your heart will fall
Then love will fly
It’s gonna soar
I don’t care for any casanova thing

All I can say is
Love stinks

(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

I’ve been through diamonds
I’ve been through minks
I’ve been through it all
Love stinks

(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

Well that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. You can feel however you want about love, but I just happen to agree with J. Geils. You all can keep all this “love” bullshit. I want no part of it.

  1. I’m sorry you’ve had such terrible experiences with love. I suppose we all have, but I for one have never given up on it. I don’t know why I didn’t… life didn’t give me much to work with. Anyway, I totally understand your take on the prompt and enjoyed the song… it actually made me smile, but I’m not sure that’s what you were going for. 🙂
