George Strait – Lovebug Lyrics

Well I was ruling the roost, had all the chicks to myself.
And suddenly it happened, that funny little feeling I felt.
Well I tried to outrun it, but it finally caught up with me.
Tell me how can I run from something that I can’t see?

[Chorus:]
Oh that little bitty teeny weeny thing they call the lovebug.
Nobody’s ever seen it, but it’s got the whole world shook up.
It all started with a little bitty kiss and a hug.
It’s a little bitty teeny weeny thing they call the lovebug.

Well I always thought that I had me a pretty good style,
But I lost that race by a good old country mile.
Well I was walking all around with my head held way up high,
And it fooled me, hit me, really took me by surprise.

[Chorus 2x]

It’s a little bitty teeny weeny thing they call the lovebug.
