"Common Pleasure" as written by and Jason Thomas Mraz....
I remember when we used to walk together
Used to talk together, go to the park together
In all kinds of weather we would share
This common pleasure with most of human kinds
It was a kind of treasure One that I was surely glad to find
But I got one right here and I'm okay
I'm okay, and you're okay, and we're okay
I'm alright. Everything else is alright sometimes.

Just remember those bones they get broken
And love is not a token of affection
It's not even a real thing, it's a word
So don't you try to but it out with a ring
Cause it's a verb, to love someone
Open up and let them in
Just don't be afraid to set them free again

This ain't no heaven, ain't no hell , ain't no in between
Cause there's just too many faces and places in this world
That I ain't ever seen
I'm gonna keep on keeping on
I'm gonna reap on being strong
I got my head on, though misconnected
It's alright cause I do it protected
I got a day job. I drive a cheap ride
Sounds like I'm gonna fine
You only get one life to learn
There's only so many brain cells that you can burn
And life can take a turn and take away that you've earned
And leave you yearning for more, so much more
Life is gonna leave you yearning for more, more, more
Your stomach's gonna be churning
Wanting more, you're wanting, wanting some more.
You're wanting some more, more, more
Do you want some?

Well I got some right here and I'm okay
I'm okay and you're okay
Ha ha, we're okay
Everything else will be fine sometimes.
Guess what I'm doing okay.

    General Comment"It's alright cause I do it protected"

    everytime he sings this line at the concerts, he makes a...suggestive..motion to the stick of his guitar. It's really quite funny, and riles all the girlies up!
