This song is by Danko Jones, features Tara MacLean and appears on the album Born a Lion (2002).

Original video
Mama said "watch out son, skinny top, heavy bottom"
I know that's easy to tell that girl's just putting you through hell
Papa said "my turn, step outside, you gotta learn
women and girls will make your head turn"
But Daddy I'm doing fine without her

Love is unkind, love is unkind, love is unkind
Love is unkind, love is unkind, love is unkind
Love is unkind, love is unkind, love is unkind
Love is unkind, love is unkind, love is unkind

Couple comes up to me
They're in love - plain to see
I take a step back and start to laugh
You know love can never last
'Cause love comes in then falls out
That's when you learn what it's about
I love you always and...
But I think we should just be friends

Love is unkind, love is unkind, love is unkind
Love is unkind, love is unkind, love is unkind
Love is unkind, love is unkind, love is unkind
Love is unkind, love is unkind, love is unkind

Now I wanna talk about love I wanna talk about love
Because all my life I've been told that love will keep you together,
Love is all you need, and all you need is love
Love is the answer
But I remember the time ha ha heh, when my mama sat me down
And she looked me in the eye the little pea-bone with a smile
And her smile turned into a laugh and her laugh turned into a cackle
And you know what she said, you know what she said ?

Love is unkind, love is unkind, love is unkind
Love is unkind, love is unkind, love is unkind
That's what she said
Love is unkind, love is unkind, love is unkind
Love is unkind, love is unkind, love is unkind

Love is unkind, love is unkind, love is unkind, it don't like nobody
Love is unkind, love is unkind, love is unkind, it don't got no friends
Love is unkind, love is unkind, love is unkind, it don't like nobody
Love is unkind, love is unkind, love is unkind, it don't got no friends

Ladies and gentlemen I'm gonna prove my point tonight
I'm gonna tilt my head up to the sky
I'm gonna look at the good lord in the eye
And if the good lord wants to strike me down tonight
And I haven't found my true love I haven't found her
If I haven't found my true love, baby....
If the good Lord wants to strike me down tonight
And I haven't found my true love, I haven't found my true love.
I'M GONNA DIE A HAPPY MAN !!!
