Need A Man


She's been around the block before
She's been called slut She's been called whore
But she don't care No she don't care
She wants to travel the world one day

She needs to find out how she's gona make her way
She'll figure it out someday

Oh baby Why dontcha just marry me
Oh baby I promise I'll stay true

You need a man to give you a hand
Oh baby Gona turn your world inside out

I told her I'd make her my girl
I asked her to give it a whirl
Sweet darlin' please Help me put your mind at ease

I know you want a better life
Free of struggle Free of strife
Look in my eyes I've told no lies

Oh baby Why dontcha just marry me
Oh baby I promise I'll stay true
You need a man to give you a hand
Oh baby Gona turn your world inside out

She seemed to not know what to say
Then raised her eyes to meet my gaze
I looked at her waiting for her answer
She sat there thinkin' for a while
As I pictured us goin' down that aisle
She looked so pleased as she said to me

Oh baby I think I'll just marry you
Oh baby I promise I'll be true
I've needed a man to give me a hand
I've gotchu Gona turn your world right side up

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
