You don't need a rich man
To make you money
Cause you got the money maker
And you sure use it, honey

You don't need a strong man
To keep you safe
Cause all the danger's in your angel face

You don't need a hard man
To make you cry
Cause you can turn on those tears
Without even tryin'

What you need is a good man
What you need is a good man
What you need is a real, good man
So what do you want with me?

What you want with me?

You don't need a fast man
To drive your fast car
Cause whatever you need
Comes wherever you are

You don't need a smart man
To do the math
When I see you in a bubble bath

And you don't need a candy man
To get you sweets
Cause you got the sugar, baby
And you've got the heat

What you need is a good man
What you need is a good man
What you need is a real, good man
So what do you want with me?

What you want with me?

I don't know why you can't
Want what you need
I don't know why I can't
Be what I should be
This love is like wine
You want it all the time
But is it good for you?
Is it good for me?

What you need is a good man
What you need is a good man
What you need is a real, good man
So what do you want with me?

What do you want with me?

You need a good man
What do you want with me?
