"Hurts So Good" as written by Oliver Green and Valentina Barnes....
When I was a young boy,
Said put away those young boy ways
Now that I'm getting' older, so much older
I long for those young boy days
With a girl like you
With a girl like you
Lord knows there are things we can do, baby
Just me and you
Come on and make it a

Hurt so good
Come on baby make it hurt so good
Sometimes love don't feel like it should
You make it, hurt so good

You don't have to be so exciting
Just trying to give myself a little bit of fun, yeah
You always look so inviting
You ain't as green as you are young
Hey baby it's you
Come on girl now it's you
Sink your teeth right through my bones, baby
Let's see what we can do
Come on and make it a

Hurt so good
Come on baby make it hurt so good
Sometimes love don't feel like it should
You make it hurt so good

I ain't talking no big deals
I ain't made no plans myself
I ain't talking no high heels
Maybe we could walk around, all day long,
Walk around, all day long

Hurt so good
Come on baby make it hurt so good
Sometimes love don't feel like it should
You make it hurt so good
Hurt so good, come baby now
Come on baby make it hurt so good
Sometimes love don't feel like it should
You make it hurt so good

Hey, hey

    General CommentThey are the same person, what's the difference? Guess it's better to keep everything together though.

    General CommentSr. Mellencamp is obviously referring to a common variety of sexual intercourse most commonly known as anal sex. While very pleasurable this variation is also acutely painful, inspiring "hurts so good".

    General Commentlol..i can see where you're comin up with that meaning, but i think the real meaning is an aging boy wanting to move his relationship with his girl forward

    General CommentI think that this song is about moving a friendship into a relatonship. He doesn't care if he gets hurt because it's her and as long as he's with her, it doesn't matter.

    I have pretty much the same feelings for someone.

    General CommentI think its just about sex period!!! He reflects on a time when he was younger and wilder and making it with girls. And there is this HOT girl. But I cant figure out if the girl is a new chick ("you aint as green as you are young") or a familiar girl he used to be with ("hey baby it's you") like he knows how she is. "sink your teeth right through my bones..." i think is oral sex. but i dont think its about a relationship really cuz he says at the end "i aint talking no big deals...I aint made no plans myself" meaning 'we're just having fun!!!

    General CommentFor me, this song is about a man reminiscing about old times with his girl. The relationship is old, but still full of love and he's looking to liven it up again; and get back to that exciting time in his life that he fondly recalls. New relationships amongst young people are often full of hurt and pain...lots of fighting. I think that when he looks back on that time in his life, he longs for it again.
