Lyrics

Love makes you dribble
And love makes for trouble
And love makes you feeble
And love makes you evil
And love wakes the devil
And love makes you trivial
Then love makes you quibble
And love makes you squabble
And that's just the good side of love

Love is a bitch
And love makes me itch
And if I were rich
I'd no longer be rich
When that beautiful bitch
Showed up on my patch
Stealing my semen
And taking my cash
And that's just the good side of love

'cause love wakes the devil
And love has no rivals
For cutting survival
When you're suicidal
And love is reliably
Unreliable
Hopelessly horrible
Tauntingly terrible
And that's just the good side of love

Love is a toothache
And love is a pain
I'd be happy if I
Never saw love again
I'd be happy to exorcise
Love from my life

'cause love makes me do such
Irrational things
And love makes a fool
Out of a king
And love is a toothache
And love is a pain
I'd be happy if I
Never saw love again
Let me show you the backside of love

Why must the spring
Ruin everything
Injecting its sting
Under my skin
Making my head spin
And making me turn
Making me flirt
With every bit of skirt
Yeah I'll show you the backside of love

Show you crimes passionel
That play merry hell
With unholy yells
In the middle of the night
Like the sound of cats rutting
The sound of bats battling
They're all sent from hell
Yeah to get my nerves rattling
I'll show you the backside of love

Love is a toothache
And love is a pain
I'd be happy if I
Never saw love again
I'd be happy to exorcise
Love from my life
