From “Like It Or Not” (2001)

by Bob Malone

She loved everything about me
Except the things that she planned to change
And she loved the way I did what I did
‘Cept when I didn’t do it her way
And I said: “baby, I know that my way ain’t the only way to go,
But it’s the only way I know”

So if the man you love (the man you love)
Is never late, never gains no weight
Got the social grace that you can tolerate
And if the man you love (the man you love)
Never lacks finesse, is richer than the rest
Don’t become a mess when he feels the stress
If what you want ain’t just what you see
If what you need is someone that you’re hoping I’ll be
Well, you may be in love
But you’re not in love with me

I loved everything about her
Except the way that she treated me
When I couldn’t spread myself thin enough to fill the space between
What I was and what she wanted me to be
And I said: “you can’t just have the part of me with which you’re so impressed
If you can’t put up with the rest”


And if you ever find the perfect man
I’ll be the first to understand, I’ll even buy the wedding band
‘Cause if you ever found the man who dosen’t exsist
Well, how could you be expected to resist?
