MAN OH MAN I CAN
As a window dresser at Macy’s
My future held nothing in store
Until that day in the warehouse
When I spotted you there on the floor
I knew when I saw you that you were the one
But you needed some parts for your arm
So I gave you a hand, but your blouse came undone
I still feel shivers from all of your slivers
Though you’re rough with me Baby
That’s part of your charm!
Chorus: Man, oh man, I love you, man, oh man, I can
Anyway I can
Love you all day
It’s not right the way I love, man, oh man, I can
Our love is ‘knot holy’
‘Wooden’ you say?
I know that you’re bald, but I don’t care at all
'Cause I know how self-conscious you are
And you always have a smile for me when I call
I love kissing your lips, though they’re missing some chips
From banging around in the trunk of my car!
That blond hair on my collar, you know, that you found?
Well, she’s just a dummy I knew long ago
Now you’re mad! I can tell, cause you won’t make a sound
Must I tap little rhythms on you with my thumb??
Mom always said you’d make a good drum!
Your eternal beauty will never run down
I won’t let you warp or decay
When you’re old, if you get board, you can lumber around
In my yard where the woodpeckers stay
They’ll build nests in your head and keep termites away!
