(James Taylor)

Well it's plain as rain
And it's there for all the world to see
Just 'cause everybody does it
That doesn't make it right for me
Someone is making plans
Involvin' my old man
Everytime I turn by back around
Feelin' like a one man woman
Living in a two time town

Now the place I come from
People don't grow on trees
And you can't treat people like meat
Without getting brought to your knees
Now and then
The way I've been feeling
Since I hit this town
Like to jump in the river and drown
Feeling like a one man woman
Living in a two time town

Sometimes I'd like
To get out on the floor
Shake it till dawn
Some young thing
Like to teach him the bump
Make me want to take him home
Well excuse me
I don't mean to preach no lectures
Yeah but me and my man won't
Be able to stay for breakfast
I guess he's got the itch
And I'm just a bitch
Who's trying to bring him down

Feeling like a one man woman
Acting like a one man woman
I guess I'm just a one man woman
