lyrics

E A B A E
We can argue back and forth try to settle just who’s wrong and who’s right
E A B A E
but we better cancel dinner plans I think that this might take all night.
E
We’re sensitive and stubborn,
B
but romantics ‘til the end.
A
We got lips that never stutter
Am
and a will that never bends but

E A B A E
We got the goods to go a long, long way
E A B A E
We got the goods to go a long, long way

(E A B dead stop on B)

We’ve had a few rough patches but we’re in it for the long run, yeah there’s no doubt.
We fuss and we throw fits but we always seem to manage to work things out
We bark but never bite
but cussed a few times I admit.
You’ve called me nasty things
and I’ve worn the shoe when it has fit but...

We got the goods to go a long, long way
We got the goods to go a long, long way

(instrumental verse 4X)

I tell the same old stories i can see how it just bores you blind.
You do the same to me too I don’t complain ‘cause I’m just not the hurting kind.
You got your fighters and your lovers
but we’re both an even mix.
Sharp words and such a thin skin
just leave broken hearts to fix but...

We got the goods to go a long, long way
We got the goods to go a long, long way
(instrumental verse 4X)

‘Cause we’re sensitive and stubborn,
but romantics ‘til the end.
We got lips that never stutter
and a will that never bends

We got the goods to go a long, long way
We got the goods to go a long, long way
We got the goods to go a long, long way
We got the goods to go a long, long way
