Johnny Paycheck – Love Is a Good Thing Lyrics

Girl you give your precious love to me and we’ve got a good thing goin’
There’s no end in sight that I can see cause our love just keeps on growin’
Bring on happiness let us sing love is a good thing
We can take what life may offer us and when trouble comes around
There’s no way it’s gonna break us up nothing gets a good love down
Bring on sunshine let us sing love is a good thing
Yeah love is a good thing let us sing love is a good thing

All I want to do is love you more and be all you’ll ever need
Cause there’s one thing that I know for sure your good lovin’ pleases me
Bring on gladness let us sing love is a good thing
Yeah love is a good thing let us sing love is a good thing
