The world's greatest mystey,
Some guys are Romeos.
Others simply do the best they can.
Is love between the woman and the man.

I'm just your average, ordinary Joe,
Tryin' to learn the things I never knew I had to know, yeah.
Yeah, yeah.
Yeah, yeah.

I don't get no kick from nine to five,
What's a man supposed to do?
And I'm not a man who thinks it's true

It's a woman's place to keep a love alive.
Watched enough daytime tv
To know my baby's needs.
But sometimes I swear that she's

Impossible to please.
She says, "You give me all that I want of your money baby,
You give me all that I want of your money baby,
But you never take me dancing.
But you never take me dancing. "

I really think I do a lot to show

How I feel about her in my way, yeah.
Roses on our Anniversary,
Candlelight and me on her birthday, yeah.
Just when I thought that I had it all worked out,
Now she says I still don't know what it's all about.
But you never take me dancing.
She says, "You give me all that I want of your money baby,
But you never take me dancing. "
You give me sweet little talk, call me honey baby,

Ooh!

[Guitar Interlude]
Tryin' to learn the things I never knew I had to know!
Yeah, yeah.
I'm just your average, ordinary Joe.

Yeah, yeah.
"You give me all that I want of your money baby,
But you never take me dancing.
You give me sweet little talk, call me honey baby,
But you never take me dancing. "
She said, "You give me all that I want of your money baby,
You give me sweet little talk, call me honey baby,
But you never take me dancing.
But you never take me dancing. "

"Take me dancing!"
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
