Love Ain’t Got No Buts

There ain’t no buts in real love
No
I love you but you need to change
I love you but I won’t marry you
I love you but I don’t want your kid
I love you but my wife won’t understand
I love you but I will smack you if you make me mad
I love you but you just don’t understand me
I love you but I love her, too
I love you but I want a divorce
I love you but let’s just live together
I love you but it’s just for tonight
I love you but I toss that word around
So that I can get what I want from you

There ain’t no buts in real love
