What's love got
to do with it?
He said,
we eat and drink
and go to bed
and have sex
and then lay back
and smoke
or talk or joke
and then another poke.

What's love got
to do with it?
He said,
we get up and wash
and have breakfast
and go to work
and get down to it
or try to shirk,
then have lunch
and back again to work
orshirk,
talk or lie
or agree to differ
with the boss
(big fool, total loss),
then home
on the bus or train
avoiding the wind and rain.

What's love got
to do with it?
He said,
we get home
have a bite to eat,
watch TV or go online
or drink booze or wine,
then to bed
and get down to it
maybe once to twice,
then lay back
and joke or talk
or smoke in silence,
avoiding rows
and maybe violence.

What's love?
Got to do
With it?
He said
lying in bed,
nothing,
not one bit.
