Same old scenario One guy's young and one guy's old One's in love and sittin' on dough And one's already walked that road One's on year number 33 And one just bought that diamond ring One says "Dad, so how'd you do it?" The other just laughs and says "There ain't nothin' to it"
Just try to quit smokin' and reel back the drinkin' Don't always tell her everything you're thinkin' And dance her when she needs dancin' You get up and go to work, get up and go to church Crawl up in that bed right next to her and listen Instead of having all the answers Then he slapped him on the back and said "Son, you can breathe, there ain't nothin' to it"
There'll be trouble along the way Words will fly and dishes break The baby comes in and money goes out You will learn to ride the ups and downs You'll wanna quit a million times But if you hang on, the years unwind And when you get to see your blushing bride Turn beautiful at 35, or 45, or 55
You'll be glad you quit smokin' and reeled back the drinkin' Didn't always tell her everything you were thinkin' And danced her when she needed dancin' You got up and went to work, got up and went to church Crawled up in that bed right next to her and listened Instead of having all the answers It's only love and all of us go through it And if I had to do it again you know I'd do it There ain't nothin' to it No, there ain't nothin' to it
Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
