I Don't Want Love Songtext
"Hey, that's pretty cool

Why don'tcha turn that up?"



Some folks say when you fall in love

You lose your appetite

If love makes you feel that way

Listen to what I say, dear



If love makes you give up steak and potatoes

(That's what you eat?)

Rice, corn, chitlins, and tomatoes

If love makes you give up all those things

I don't want love



If love makes you give up ham and greens

Chicken pot pie and lima beans

If love makes you give up all them things

(Don't want it)

I don't want love



Ooo...



Well, I am here to say to you that

I love my bread and my meat

Take a look at me and it's plain to see

That I'm a man

That loves to eat



So, if love makes you give up steak and tomatoes

Eggs over easy and hashbrown potatoes

If love makes you give up stuff like that

(Oh no)

Heh, I don't want love

No, no, no, no, no, no, no



If love makes you give up corn-dogs and mustard

Cracker Jacks, tootie fruity custard

If love makes you give up onion rings

I don't want love

(Don't want it)



If love makes you give up pizza night

Garlic mashed potatoes, then it's outta sight

If love makes you give up all those things

No no, not me



Well, my baby's awful skinny

And she don't like meat

And she can't stand breakfast in bed

And as for me, well, where's my seat?

'Cause it's time that I was fed



So if love makes you give up saute and pate

And foie gras

And stuff you have to flambé

If love makes you give up buffalo wings

I don't want love



No, no

Not me

No sir

No siree

I, I, I, I, I don't want love



Pass the sausage!
