i am an ordinary man, who desires nothing more
than just an ordinary chance,
to live exactly as he likes,and precisely what he wants
an average man am i, of no ecentric whim
who likes to live his life,free of strife
doing whatever he thinks is best for him
oh just an ordinary man
BUT let a woman in your life, and your serenity is through
she'll redecorate your home from cellar to the dome
then go on to the enthralling fun of overhauling you
let a woman in your life, and you are up against a wall
make a plan and you will find, she had something else in mind
and so rather than do either you do something else that neither likes at all!
you want to talk of keats or milton, she only wants to talk of love
you go to see a play or ballet, and spend it searching for her glove
let a woman in your life, and you invite eternal strife
let them buy their wedding bands for those anxious little hands
i'd be equally as willing for a dentist to be drilling
than to ever let a woman in my life.
i'm very gentle man
even tempered and good natured, whom you never hear complain
who has the milk of human kindness,by the quart in every vein
a patience man am i, down to my fingertips
the sort who never could ever would let an insulting remarks escape his lips
a very gentle man
but let a woman in your life, and patience hasn't got a chance
she'll beg for your advice, your reply will be concise
and she'll listen very nicely,
then go out and do precisely, what she wants!
you were a man of grace and polish, who never spoke above a hush
now all at once you're using language, that would make a sailor blush
let a woman in your life. and you're plunging in a knife
let the others of my sex, tie the knot around their necks
i'd prefer a new edition of the spanish inquisition
then to ever let a woman in my life
i'm a quite-living man,
who prefers to spend the evenings in the silence of his room
who likes an atmosphere as restful as an undiscovered tomb
a pensive man am i of philosophical joys
who likes to mediate,contemplate, free from humanity's madin human noise
a quiet living man
but let a woman in your life, and your sabbatical is through
in a line that never ends, coma an army of her friends
come to jabber and to chatter and to tell her
what the matter is with you!
she'll have a booming, boisterous family,who will descend on you en mess
she'll have a large, wangerian mother with a voice that shatters glass!
let a woman in your life...........
i shall never let a woman in my life..................
