lyrics

we all know a man can be a delicate thing
he can be soft and sweet like sugar wrapped in butter
and I don’t mind your company but if you wanna make me sing
keep in mind that I am not your mother

show me something I can rely on
or I would rather be alone
you give your heart but I wanna see your
backbone

every time you talk to me there’s worry in your eyes
I wonder what on earth could you be so afraid of
I ain’t gonna hurt you honey, I ain’t even half your size
step on up and show me what you’re made of

show me something I can rely on
or I would rather be alone
you give your heart but I wanna see your
backbone

baby, I know what I’m lookin for
I don’t wanna ask you anymore
honey, I’ve already conquered all I can
I just wanna be a woman
all you gotta be’s a man

this is how it’s always been, and it is this way still
it isn’t something we need to debate
you say you’re gonna please me, but I don’t see how you will
when you can’t even stand up straight

show me something I can rely on
or I would rather be alone
you give your heart but I wanna see your
backbone
