The Grass Roots – Let’s Live for Today Lyrics

When..I think of all the worries
people seem to find.
And how they’re in a hurry
to complicate their mind.
By chasing after money.
and dream that can’t come true
I’m glad that we are different
we’ve better things to do
May others plan their future,
I’m busy lovin’ you..
.1-2-3-4
Sha-la-la-la-la-la,
live for today
Sha-la-la-la-la-la,
live for today
And don’t worry
’bout tomorrow,
hey, hey, hey
Sha-la-la-la-la-la,
live for today

..We..were never meant to worry
the way that people do.
And I don’t need to hurry
as long as I’m with you.
We’ll take it nice and easy
and use my simple plan.
You’ll be my lovin’ woman
I’ll be your lovin’ man.
We’ll take
the most from living,
have pleasure while we can
..2-3-4
Sha-la-la-la-la-la,
live for today
Sha-la-la-la-la-la,
live for today
And don’t worry.
’bout tomorrow,
hey, hey, hey
Sha-la-la-la-la-la,
live for today
Live for today

I need to feel you
inside of me
I got to feel you
deep inside of me
.please come close to me
.I got to have you now,
please, please, please
Gimme some-a lovin’
