Thing Called Love
Bonnie Raitt Lyrics


Don't have to humble yourself to me
I ain't your judge or your king
Baby, you know I ain't no Queen of Sheba
We may not even have our dignity
This could be just a powerful thing
Baby we can choose you know we ain't no amoeba

Are you ready for the thing called love
Don't come from me and you
It comes from up above
I ain't no porcupine
Take off your kid gloves
Are you ready for the thing called love

I ain't some icon carved out of soap
Sent here to clean up your reputation
Baby, you know you ain't no Prince Charming
We can live in fear or act out of hope
For some kind of peaceful situation
Baby, how come the cry of love is so alarming

Are you ready for the thing called love
Don't come from me and you
It comes from up above
I ain't no porcupine
Take off your kid gloves
Are you ready for the thing called love

Ugly ducklings don't turn into swans
And glide off down the lake
Whether your sunglasses are off or on
You only see the world you make

Are you ready for the thing called love
Don't come from me and you
It comes from up above
I ain't no porcupine
Take off your kid gloves

Are you ready for it
Are you ready for the thing called love
Don't come from me and you
It comes from up above
I ain't no porcupine
Take off your kid gloves

Are you ready for it
Are you ready for love, baby
Ooh yeah babe
Are you ready for love

John Hiatt - way way way under-acknowledged songwriter. The smarter country/rock performers gravitate to Hiatt's songs. I also love 'The Most Unoriginal Sin' Willie does a knockout v - but so too does JH whose own version took me ages to find on CD. 


And Bonnie - well, if ever an artist owned a song they didn't write - this would be the benchmark to test all others against. And can the woman play! Hoooeee. Also got this in my collection.


'I ain't no Queen of Sheba' - 'I ain't no porcupine' - 'Take off your kid gloves'  'This could be a powerful thing'. Pure country poetry.
