Lyrics

Love Bug

Written By: Kelly Riley

Me and Jimmy, we went out to get the skinny
We were just about ten years old
It seems that there was kissin'
in the woods behind the Mission;
a story to unfold

We ran along the guardrail, down to the trail and close enough to see
Somethin' was a buzzin', they were swarmin' by the dozen near the old Oak tree

Feel the sting, pesky little thing
One kiss, one hug,
you're bitten by the Love Bug
Laugh or cry but you can't deny
No medicine or drug will save you from the Love Bug

A boy named Rusty made me feel kinda lusty in my high school Science class
He slipped me notes and I'd blink my eyes; it was the only test I passed
He showed up after school with a smile, looking cool, for a walk down the street
I was feelin' kinda funny, like the bee to the honey, I smelled something sweet

Feel the sting, pesky little thing
One kiss, one hug,
you're bitten by the Love Bug
Laugh or cry but you can't deny
No medicine or drug will save you from the Love Bug

It's terribly infectious
You feverishly loose direction
You're gonna have a reaction
Still! What's the attraction?

Feel the sting, pesky little thing
One kiss, one hug,
you're bitten by the Love Bug
Laugh or cry but you can't deny
No medicine or drug will save you from the Love Bug
