lyrics

Young love, sweet love, two of a kind
What's mine is yours, yours is mine
Punch me in the shoulder, I'll pretend it hurts
Pretend you don't see me looking down your shirt

Oh no, what's this now?
Two dumb birds with our heads in the ground
Life's cleaning our clock, kicking our can
But we still got each other and that ain't half bad

Dancing in the kitchen like fools in heat
You're all thumbs, I got two left feet
Furnace ain't running ‘cause the bill's not paid
It's cold as hell but at least we're getting laid

Oh no, what's this now?
Two dumb birds with our heads in the ground
Life's cleaning our clock, kicking our can
But at least we got each other and that ain't half bad

No I've never been one to knock on wood
With the luck we've had I probably should

They hear us coming down when we're driving through town
Tail lights broke, the muffler's gone
Can't stop laughing, you're red in the face
So far behind I think we're winning this race

Oh no, what's this now?
Two dumb birds with our heads in the ground
Life's cleaning our clock, kicking our can
But at least we got each other and that ain't half bad

No I've never been one to knock on wood
With the luck we've had I probably should

Sky full of stars in the middle of the night
You whisper in my ear, "It'll be alright"
The day might come when I don't know your name
But I'll still be loving you just the same

Oh no, what's this now?
Two dumb birds with our heads in the ground
Life's cleaning our clock, kicking our can
But we still have each other and that ain't half bad
We still got each other and that ain't half bad
