Ex-Boyfriend Blues (Be A Man)

I didn’t wake up this mornin’
‘cause I didn’t go to bed.
Thoughts of you runnin’
All through my head.
Now, I’ve been burned before,
I’ve played the pawn.
Gonna stop this right now
Before it keeps goin’ on.
So listen up sweetheart,
I need you to understand:
Just ‘cause I call you my baby,
don’t mean you can’t be a man.

Now you know I’m not your mother
Though she is a fine woman
But I clean up your mess
Like you were my own son
I’m pickin up your dirty socks
And I’m sweeping up your crumbs
And if I leave it as a protest
Well then it just won’t get done
So listen up, darling
Don’t make me hold your hand
Just ‘cause I call you my baby,
Don’t mean you can’t be a man.

Well, I’m workin’ like a dog
and you’re sleepin’ in ‘til three
While I’m bringin’ home the bacon,
You’re livin’ off my charity
Well you know that I love it
Knowing that you’ll always be there
Except when it’s because
You don’t have a job anywhere
So listen up honey,
I just gotta take a stand
Just ‘cause I call you my baby,
Don’t mean you can’t be a man

After a long day of workin’
Sometimes it’s just too much
I come straight home to you
And all I want is your touch.
Now I’m not in the mood
To play your silly games
And I’ve just gotta tell you
That won’t set my heart aflame
So listen up lover,
I want some sweet romance.
Just ‘cause I call you my baby,
Don’t mean you can’t be a man.
