You should be stronger than me
You been here seven years longer than me
Don't you know you supposed to be the man?
Not pale in comparison to who you think I am
You always wanna talk it through
I don't care
I always have to comfort you
When I'm there
But that's what I need you to do
Stroke my hair
Cuz I've forgotten all of young love's joy
Feel like a lady, n' you my lady boy
You should be stronger than me
But instead you're longer than frozen turkey
Why'd you always put me in control?
All I need is for my man to live up to his role
You always wanna talk it through
I'm O.K
I always have to comfort you
Everyday
But that's what I need you to do
Are you gay?
Cuz I've forgotten all of young love's joy
Feel like a lady, n' you my lady boy
He said 'the respect I made you earn, thought you had so many lessons to learn'
I said 'you don't know what love is get a grip'
Sounds as if you're reading from some other tired script
I'm not gonna meet your mother anytime
I just wanna grip your body over mine
Please tell me why you think that's a crime
I've forgotten all of young love's joy
Feel like a lady and you my lady boy
You should be stronger than me...
You should be stronger than me...
You should be stronger than me...
You should be stronger than me.

    Stronger than Me and In My Bed are my two most favorite Amy Winehouse song. I hate that she's not still around to share her talent with us.

    She's tired of having to be the one to take the reigns and i thing maybe she just wants him for once to be the strong one. I see it as a resignation that he'll never grow up and learn to be a man, and she's just done with it.

    She views him as being girly because shes not that sentimental about their relationship. She wans him to switch roles with her.

    It's about a emotionally strong woman who has a weak man that can't handle drink and should be stronger to her.
