Hey, is this my turn? You want me to sing now? Okay I don't care if you won't talk to me You know I'm not that kind of girl And I don't care if you won't walk with me It don't give me such a thrill And I don't care about the way you look You should know I'm not impressed 'Cause there's just one thing that I'm looking for And he don't wear a dress I need a man … Baby, baby, baby don't you shave your legs Don't you double comb your hair Don't powder puff just leave it rough I like your fingers bare When the night comes down I can turn it round, I can take you anywhere I don't need love forget that stuff You know that I don't care I need a man … I don't need a heartbreaker, fifty-faced trouble maker Two timing time taker, dirty little money maker Muscle bound cheapskate, low down woman hater Triple crossing, double dater, yella bellied alligator … I need a man; leave me alone I need a man; don't take me home I need a man; baby you are just all the blonde Hey boy c'mon I'll take you anytime Baby, baby, baby
