Can I bum a light from you, baby?
If you let me I'll buy you a round
Sure is packed, is that seat taken?
Do you mind if I sit down?
I see you tappin' your foot there, baby
So you like that song?
Well it happens to be one of my favorites
Do you wanna dance, baby? C'mon

It's time to get a little weekend crazy
There's no need to make it all that tough
We ain't jumping off the deep end, baby
It ain't gotta be love
No, it ain't gotta be love

No pressure, let your hair down, baby
We can take it slow
Your name and what you're drinkin' is all I need to know

It's time to get a little weekend crazy
There's no need to make it all that tough
We ain't jumping off the deep end, baby
It ain't gotta be love
No, it ain't gotta be love

It's time to get a little weekend crazy
There's no need to make it all that tough
We ain't jumping off the deep end, baby
It ain't gotta be love
No, it ain't gotta be love
No, it ain't gotta be love

Song facts

""It Ain't Gotta Be Love" was one of the first songs I wrote when I moved to Nashville. I had been in a serious relationship for a while, and I moved to Nashville. It was a new city, and life was good. I was kind of over the whole idea of a serious relationship at that point. I was seeing people going into the bars and stuff looking for their soul mates or looking for love. You could tell by their expressions that they were kind of uptight, and I would think, "It ain't gotta be love … you don't have to take it so serious." So the idea just kind of came from that... Maybe someday I'll find that one, and I'm not against that at all. I'm sure someday I'll have a relationship, but right now, I just like to go out there and have a blast. That's what "It Ain't Gotta Be Love" is all about." - Brett Eldredge
