"Love Stinks" as written by Seth Justman and Peter Wolf....
You love her
But she loves him
And he loves somebody else
You just can't win

And so it goes
Till the day you die
This thing they call love
It's gonna make you cry

I've had the blues
The reds and the pinks
One thing for sure

(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

Two by two and side by side
Love's gonna find you yes it is
You just can't hide
You'll hear it call

Your heart will fall
Then love will fly
It's gonna soar
I don't care for any casanova thing

All I can say is
Love stinks

(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

I've been through diamonds
I've been through minks
I've been through it all
Love stinks

(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah
(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

    General CommentThis song's awesome. The name says it all, dude...I can definitely relate to this, I've been in so many sticky situations with love. Even Twisted Sister's "Love is for Suckers" doesn't say it like this song does...I like this song because it's so blunt--no euphemism and no bullshit.

    General CommentThis song always puts a smile to my face... it reminds me of adam sandler in the wedding singer. I sing this song in my head when i'm feeling spiteful...

    General CommentIt takes an average everyday guy to cry to a very slow, regressive, dark, deep and depressing song after a really really bad breakup.

    But it takes a guy with class and a great sense of humour to cry to this.

    Love stinks.
