You need a job, so you can make some money
You need a nice warm place to stay
A sense of humor 'cause life ain't funny
A big stick keeps the wolves away

You need a car with good tyres on it
The right place to eat barbecue
A heavy duty set of jumper cables
No holes in your walkin' shoes

The main thing you're gonna find, you need
A fertile place to plant your seed

Gotta find somebody to love you
Someone to be there for you night and day
Somebody to share with, be a part of you
Love ain't no good till you give it away
You got to give it away

I got to recommend some Life Insurance
Be prepared to dial 911
Pay close attention to your high blood pressure
Stay away from the man with the gun

You need a reason to get up in the mornin'
Make sure the clock got snooze control
Be sure you got a place to run for cover
'Cause overnight things can get real cold

You're gonna find that sooner or later
You need a common denominator

You gotta find somebody to love
Someone to be there night and day
Someone to share with, be a part of you
Love ain't no good till you give it away
Oh, give it away

The main thing you're gonna go, what you need
A fertile place where the plant you seed

You got to find somebody to love
Someone to be there for you night and day
Someone to share with, be a part of you
Love ain't no good till you give it away

You gotta find somebody to love
Be there for you night and day
Someone to share, be a part of you
Love ain't no good till you give it away

Gotta find somebody, you gotta find somebody
Love ain't no good till you give it away
Love ain't no good till you give it away
Love ain't no good till you give it away

You gotta find somebody to love
Someone to be there for you night and day
Someone to share with, be a part of you
Love ain't no good till you give it away

Love ain't no good till you give it away
Love ain't no good till you give it away
Gotta give it away, gotta give it away
