My Grandparents Set to Music

Two young people without a thing
Say some vows and spread their wings
And settle down with just what they need
Livin' on love.

She don't care 'bout what's in style
She just likes the way he smiles
It takes more than marble and tile
Livin' on love.

Livin' on love, buyin' on time
Without somebody nothing ain't worth a dime
Just like an old fashion story book rhyme
Livin' on love.
It sounds simple, that's what you're thinkin'
But love can walk through fire without blinkin'
It doesn't take much when you get enough
Livin' on love.

Two old people without a thing
Children gone but still they sing
Side by side in that front porch swing
Livin' on love.

He can't see anymore
She can barely sweep the floor
Hand in hand they'll walk through that door
Just livin' on love.

Livin' on love, buyin' on time
Without somebody nothing ain't worth a dime
Just like an old fashion story book rhyme
Livin' on love.
It sounds simple that's what you're thinkin'
But love can walk through fire without blinkin'
It doesn't take much when you get enough
Livin' on love.

Livin' on love, buyin' on time
Without somebody nothing ain't worth a dime
Just like an old fashion story book rhyme
Livin' on love.
It sounds simple that's what you're thinkin'
But love can walk through fire without blinkin'
It doesn't take much when you get enough
Livin' on love.

No, it doesn't take much when you get enough
Livin' on love.
