The men that I've been seeing, baby
Got their soul up on a shelf
You know they could never love me
'Cause they can't even love themselves

But I want someone to love me
Baby I want one to understand
Won't put himself above me
Who can love me like a man

I never seen such losers
Don't think I haven't tried
Find a man to take me home instead of
Always for a ride

Baby, I use someone to care
Believe it when I tell you darlin'
You can love me like a man

Oh won't they rock on
Like my back ain't got no bone
Why don't you rock me one time baby
Like my backbone was your own

Baby, I want to wait until you can
Believe it when I tell you darlin'
You can love me like a man

Come home sad and lonely
Feel like I want to cry
Come over here and hold me baby
And don't ever ask the reason why
I said I, I want a lover
Won't have to work to understand

Don't put yourself above me baby
Love me like a man
