Man Oh Man I Can

From the album Peter Alsop Buy Now

MAN OH MAN I CAN!

Intro:

 

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!

 

Cho: 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!

Chorus
