Good lovin' ain't easy Good lovin' ain't easy Good lovin' ain't easy to come by Oh, darlin', that's the kind you offer me It's just the love to be found 'Cause we're workin' on a buildin' nobody can tear down Look what we've got, ho-ho-ho-honey
Good lovin' ain't easy Good lovin' ain't easy, darlin' Good lovin' ain't easy to come by, oh no no I've tried the good life and I know It's a playground where no one cares But at last you'll find out that don't compare To what we've got, ho-ho-ho-honey
It takes more than just a song and dance You've got to work and fight to give it a chance If the rain comes down on us And there ain't no place to run We'll just cover ourselves with a blanket of love And wait till the mornin' comes Oh baby, let's do it today Inflection Give us protection
Good lovin' ain't easy to come by Some think it's a plaything You can toss away when it's old But when love's valued in pieces It's worth more than gold That's what we've got
Staley from Dallas, TxThe vocals are actually just Valerie Simpson (doing a halfway-decent Tammi Terrell imitation) and Marvin Gaye. Interestingly, accounts vary as to who admits Valerie was singing and who denies it. You can tell by listening te most of the album it came from ("Easy") that it's not Tammi singing, though. There are some pretty good songs on the album (including "Good Lovin'"), but it doesn't rise to the heights of "You're All I Need to Get By" or "If I Could Build My Whole World Around You."
"Won't Get Fooled Again" by The Who is about a revolution, but it doesn't have a happy ending, since in the end the new regime becomes just like the old one. Pete Townshend thought that whoever was in power was destined to become corrupt.
