Ain't Nothin' to It

Album: Ain't Nothin' to It (2019)
  • 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
