George Strait – If You Ain’t Lovin’ (You Ain’t Livin’) Lyrics

[Verse 1]
If you got a Cadillac, boy
And a forty room shack, boy
A bucket full of money and a tree full of honey
But if you’re getting no hugging
No smooching
Or a mugging
If you ain’t loving, then you ain’t living
[Verse 2]
If you’re riding on a gravy train
Instead of walking down lover’s lane
You can’t make hay, boy
Cause you’re going the wrong way boy
You gotta get a little honey
It’s better than money
If you ain’t loving, then you ain’t living
[Verse 3]
If they call you a big man
Cause you gotta lotta bottom land
If you’re kin to the president
And you help run the government
But if you’re getting no attention
You’re better off on a pension
If you ain’t loving, then you ain’t living
[Verse 4]
If you got a string of long cars
And you’re smoking them four-bit cigars
You ain’t no well to do unless you get a little kochi-ko
It takes a little bit of smacking
All your life’s a-lacking
If you ain’t loving, then you ain’t living
