Aretha Franklin – Reasons Why Lyrics

[Intro]
Rock, let’s rock, yeah
[Verse 1]
I used to wonder ’bout a lot of things
Things that I didn’t understand
I’ve given on up in what I used to take
I know I’m giving all I can
Life is too short to be taken
Taken for a jolly ride, yeah
Everything I do from now on in, hoo
I got to be satisfied
[Pre-Chorus]
I ain’t living sun up to sun down
Just to have a frown on my face, ooh
I have my feet planted on the ground
I like it better that way, for
[Chorus]
(Oh-ooh-oh-ooh-oh) I love the reasons why
(Oh-ooh-oh-ooh-oh) I love the reasons why
[Post-Chorus]
Hey, hey, darling
Love it, love it, love it, love it, love it, love it
Oh, oh, oh, oh, yeah
[Verse 2]
Bright lights, big city, it’s like a spider web, y’all
Caught up in the glitter and the pretty
Never have I seen it so bad
Life is too short to be taken
Taken for a jolly ride, ooh
Everything I do from now on in, hoo
I’ve got to be satisfied
[Pre-Chorus]
I ain’t living from sun up to sun down
Just to have a frown on my face (Frown on my face)
I have my feet planted on the ground
I like it better that way, ho
[Chorus]
(Oh-ooh-oh-ooh-oh) I love the reasons why
(Oh-ooh-oh-ooh-oh) I love the reasons why
[Outro]
You can love any man when you wanna
I love the reasons, the reasons why
When your friends ain’t around when your world is falling down
I know the reasons why
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, yeah
I know the reasons why, yeah
Ooh, yeah, I love the, oh, oh, oh, oh
Hoo, yeah, I love the, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Ooh, I love the, oh, oh, oh, oh, yeah
I love the, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, the reasons, ooh
Ooh, the reasons why
Ooh, uh-huh, ooh, uh-huh, ha, yeah, ooh yeah yeah, I love the reasons
