Yeah, alright
Everyone I know needs love like drugs
Like a common cold we could never shrug
My baby and me
We're missing the same stuff
We've all got a disease
Deficiency of love
Every day we still try
Every night we still cry
Driving home on the 805

We don't know what we're doing
We do it again
We're just amateur lovers
With amateur friends

I can tell you what you're thinking now
Before you think it you can settle down
We don't know what we're doing
Let's do it again
Let's do it again

You try to play it down
But it never stuck
I tried to bail this town
I'm getting no such luck, yeah
When nobody's around
I keep my eyes on the clock
There ain't a cure I've found
In all my times around this block
Everyday we still try
Every night we still cry
We drive it home on the 405

We don't know what we're doing
We do it again
We're just amateur lovers
With amateur friends, yeah

I can tell you what you're thinking now
Before you think it you can settle down
We don't know what we're doing
Let's do it again, yeah
Let's do it again
Let's do it again
We don't know what we're doing
Let's do it again, yeah
You know
We're just amateur lovers
With amateur friends
I can tell you what you're thinking now
Before you think it you can settle down
Our loving isn't gonna burn us out
We don't know what we're doing
Let's do it again, yeah
Let's do it again, yeah
Let's do it again, alright
Let's do it again
Professional, professional
Professional, professional
Professional, professional
Professional, professional
Professional, professional
Professional
Yeah, alright
