Love Stinks

Words & Music:

J. Geils Band

You love her, but she loves him.

And he loves somebody else, you just can't win.

And so it goes, 'til the day you die.

This thing they call love, it's gonna make you cry.

G                                               F

I've had the blues, the reds and the pinks, but one thing's for sure:


Love stinks!



G    C        F     G

Love stinks!  Yeah, yeah.  [4x]


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 gone, that's all.

I don't care what any Casanova thinks.

All I can say is:  Love stinks!






I've been through diamonds, I've been through minks.

     F                     G

I've been through it all:  Love stinks!


CHORUS:  [2x]


Love stinks!
