Lyrics for “Love is Good for Anything That Ails You”

 

Love is good for anything that ails you
Baby, there is nothing love can’t do
Love is good for anything that ails you
How’s about a sweet romance or two

A kiss will pep you up
A little hug will step you up
If dreams have kept you up
You don’t need pills, you need thrills

Love’s a precious thing that never fails you
Love is good for anything that ails you

Love’s a precious thing that never fails you
Love is good for anything that ails you
