You see her sitting with her coffee and her paper
With a long cool stare she aggravates the tension

What if she figures out you're not very smart
Boy, you got to get it settled

You can't do that to a modern woman
She understands the things you're doin'

She's got a lot of confidence, it's easy to see
But you feel so inferior
Is someone who's free
She's got style and she's got her own money
She's got the eyes that make you realize

That won't attract the modern woman
She understands the things you're doin'

She says she loves you but she doesn't know why
It's a strange situation for an old fashioned guy
But times have changed
You overcame such a bad attitude
And nowadays it's politics

And face the facts of modern woman
She understands the things you're doin'
