[maizie:]You can have himI don’t want himHe’s not worth fighting forBesides there’s plenty more where he came fromI don’t want himYou can have himI’m giving him the sackAnd he can go right back where he came fromI could never make him happyHe’d be better off with youI’m afraid I never loved himAll I ever wanted to do wasRun my fingers thru his curly locksMend his underwear and darn his socksFetch his slippers and remove his shoesWipe his glasses when he read the newsRub his forehead with a gentle touchMornings after when he’s had too muchKiss him gently when he cuddled nearGive him babies one for ev’ry year, so you seeI don’t want him, you can have himYou can have him, I don’t want himFor he’s not the man for me[monique:]You can have himI don’t want himHe’s not worth fighting forBesides there’s plenty more where he came fromI don’t want himYou can have himHe isn’t my concernAnd he can just return where he came fromI would look a trifle sillyTaking him away from youThat was never my intentionAll I ever wanted to do wasClose the window while he soundly sleptRaid the icebox where the food is keptCook a breakfast that would please him mostEggs and coffee and some buttered toastWake him gently with a breakfast trayAfter breakfast clear the things awayBring the papers and when they’ve been readSpend the balance of the day in bed, so you seeI don’t want him, you can have himYou can have him, I don’t want himFor he’s not the man for me
