Better To Have And Not Need Lyrics

by Huey Lewis & The News

You know, I can't get no more
(Satisfaction)
Girl, you just don't give me no more
(Inspiration)

Listen to me, you gone and lost that
(Lovin' feeling)
But you won't see me packin' up my clothes and
(Goin' leavin')

It's better to have and don't need
Than need and don't have
Much better to have and don't need
Than need and don't have
You know that a man without a woman
Is sure gonna feel bad

Girl, you cause me so much
(Pain and sorrow)
But you know we haven't no money, momma, is it
(So much harder)

You better know it, yeah
Friends stop by my house
(Instigating)
But you know there won't be no, no
(Separating)

It's better to have and don't need
Than need and don't have
Much better to have and don't need
Than need and don't havev

You know, that a woman without a man
Is sure gonna be sad
(Feel so sad, yeah)

You know, my clouds don't have a
(Silver lining)
Don't throw no umbrella on me because the
(Sun is shining)

I remember when you loved me, you used to
(Keep me honey)
Well, I like the lyrics to your song but I just can't
(Feel the music)

It's better to have and don't need
Than need and don't have
Much better to have and don't need
Than need and don't have

Somebody is better than nobody
To have, have, have
(Oh, yeah, listen to me)

It's better to have and don't need
Than need and don't have
Much better to have and don't need
Than need and don't have

You know that a man without a woman
He's gonna feel so bad
You know that a woman without a man
She's gonna, she's gonna feel so sad
