Dickey Lee – Makin' Love Don't Always Make Love Grow lyrics

The first time that she said let's start our family
I said hon I've got the whole wide world to see
So come along and be this drifter's lady the next best thing to love is bein' free
She said don't you feel the need to have some kids and settle down
I said not while there's some places left to go yeah
I'd like to love you in Alaska underneath the midnight sun
She said makin' love don't always make love grow didn't you know

Acapulco and the Mexicaly sunshine Hawaii on a rooftop in the rain
Out of Rio De Janeiro on a tramp liner just outside of Paris on a train
And she said don't you feel the need to have some kids and settle down
I said not while there's some places left to go
I'd like to love you in the backseat of a taxi leavin' town
She said makin' love don't always make love grow didn't you know

As we walked one day along the beach of Monterey
A little boy came up and took her by the hand
And said mom is it okay if I go swimmin'
But when he saw his mistake he blushed and ran
I laughed and reached for her but she just stepped away
Through the teardrops in her eyes she tried to smile
Suddenly I knew she'd wait for me no longer and just as suddenly I changed my style
I said don't you feel the need to have some kids and settle down
Someday everybody needs a home
I guess I'm finally learnin' love is more than just a runnin' round
But makin' love is hard to do alone
I said don't you feel the need to have some kids and settle down
Babe I'm gonna take it on my own
See I'm finally learnin' love is more than just a runnin' round
Why makin' love might even make love grow didn't you know
