Good Lovin'

Written By: Brian Carter

Hello, it’s nice to meet ya
Tell me what’s your name
I’d like to get to know you better
I think we’re both the same
How often can I see ya
I think we’d get very far
Don’t do what other guys do
Don’t think that I am star

Can’t make up your mind
I sure understand
‘Cause we don’t wanna make a big mistake
Once you decide
Let me take your hand
On a wonderful road we will take

Good lovin’s somethin’ we all need
We all deserve what we want
And get what we need
Good lovin’s what we hope to achieve
I have your
Good lovin’, good lovin’

Now that we’re both together
Let’s make a plan to stay
In love, now and forever
So no one can take my place
As our lives grow it’s clever
To make a pact to see
How well we’ve handled the weather
Between you and me

You’ve made up your mind
We both understand
And neither one of us have regrets
‘Cause we’ve relied on each other
Not people in sand
The most important one thing we have best

Good lovin’s somethin’ we all need
We all deserve what we want
And get what we need
Good lovin’s what we hope to achieve
I have your
Good lovin’, good lovin’
