Here’s what my mama said
Do it for the love, not for the money
Not for the guns and not for the honeys
Do it ‘cause it makes you feel alive
Like the way we rockin’ on Saturday night
Do it for the love of it, do it for the smell of it
Do it for the joy and the taste and the hell of it
Do it ‘cause you love it and it makes no sense
Not yens or euros or dollars or cents

When I was a little, little boy I knew I’d grow up
To be somebody that my mama said would always show up
To work, to school and all that’s cool
But, following rules was never my strong suit, you know
I bought a guitar, a microphone too
Set out to do what I was born to do
And mama said something as I was walking out the door


[Chorus:]
Do it for the love, not for the money
Not for the guns and not for the honeys
Do it ‘cause it makes you feel alive
Like the way we rockin’ on Saturday night
Do it for the love of it, do it for the smell of it
Do it for the joy and the taste and the hell of it
Do it ‘cause you love it and it makes no sense
Not yens or euros or dollars or cents

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na
Do it for the love of it
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na
Just for the love of it

Life is never easy and you better know it
Sometimes it’s like the date you’re waiting for that doesn’t show up
You got to pay the rent, or else you owe it
And like a credit card, you know you better not blow it
And if you got beef with someone, let go it
And if you got love for someone, you better show it
Mama said this as I was walking out the door


[Chorus]

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na
Do it for the love of it
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na
Just for the love of it


[Chorus]

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na
In the summertime
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na
That’s right, that’s right, so party people say
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na
Put your hands in the air like this, y’all
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na
Do it for the love of it
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na
Do it for the love of it
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na
Just for the love of it
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na
Do it for the love of it
Just for the love of it
