Some things you do for money and some you do for love love love

"Love Love Love" - The Mountain Goats

King Saul fell on his sword
when it all went wrong
and Joseph's brother sold him down the river for a song
and Sonny Liston rubbed some tiger balm into his glove

Some things you do for money
and some you do for Love Love Love

Raskalnikov felt sick
and he couldn't say why
when he saw his face reflected
in his victim's twinkling eye

Some things you'll do for money
some you'll do for fun
but the things you do for love are gonna come back
one by one

Love love is gonna lead you be the hand
into a white and soundless place

Now we see things
as in a mirror dimly
then we shall see each other
to face

And way out in Seattle,
young Kurt Cobain
snuck out to the greenhouse
and put a bullet in his brain

Snakes in the grass beneath our feet
rain in the clouds above
some moments last forever
but some flair out
with love love love
