Lover Man

  

I've knocked around this world a bit, and I have boy-and-girled a bit. 

I'm sure you will agree I'm an authority. 

There's dames some fellas woo, some won't. 

There's thems that do and thems that don't... 

Well thems that don't are now in the minority. 

***********************

 

Loosen up, be yourself.  Couldn't you just see yourself 

With a dame in satin, a cane and hat in your hand. 

Be a Lover Man, Be a Lover Man. 

  

Now love is fine but lovers who would rather do what lovers do 

They don't make matches, they just take catch as catch can. 

Be a Lover Man, Be a Lover Man. 

  

    If you're a gigolo, you get a big hello 

    From Chorus Sadies. 

    But pass 'em over, man, cause Casanova can 

    Love leadin' ladies. 

  

Don't be a sap.  A lot more dames who want your lap but not your name 

Give you more than marrying or torch carrying can. 

Be a Lover Man, Be a Lover Man. 

  

Suppose a gal's a smart coquette.  She thinks she's playin' hard to get. 

If you go for her, don't  take no for her answer. 

Be a Lover Man, Be a Lover Man. 

  

She says "You've got to marry me!"  But you're no ordinary he. 

Caress this chicken and soon she's lickin' your hand. 

Be a Lover Man, Be a Lover Man. 

  

    When you are old and gray you may be out of play 

    But you can brave it. 

    If while you've got the spark keep shootin' in the dark! 

    No way to save it. 

  

It's not too late to change your style.  If you cultivate that lover's smile, 

They'll have your biography, like pornography, banned! 

Be a Lover Man, Be a Lover Man.
