Raphael Saadiq – Good Man lyrics

Chorus

(I'm a good man, food on the table, working two jobs, ready, willing, and able – check.
Good man. I’m having fun, got no kids and I love the Lord – check.
Good man. I'm monogamous never did time – well, maybe just once – check.
Good man, and I puts it down, wanna say it twice, well I puts it down – check.)
Check, check

Verse 1

How could you ever walk away, after all I've done for you?
I feel like there's a knife in my back, babe.
You might as well pull it all the way through!

Chorus

Good man.
(I'm a good man, food on the table, working two jobs, ready, willing, and able – check.)
Good man.
(Good man. I’m having fun, got no kids and I love the Lord – check.)
Good man.
(Good man. I'm monogamous never did time – well, maybe just once – check.)
Good man.
(Good man, and I puts it down, wanna say it twice, well I puts it down – check.)

Verse 2

You watched them hand cuff me lady, and walk me through my own home.
I never been so humiliated; I don't think that I deserved it from you!


Chorus

Good man.
(I'm a good man, food on the table, working two jobs, ready, willing, and able – check.)
Good man.
(Good man. I’m having fun, got no kids and I love the Lord – check.)
Good, good man.
(Good man. I'm monogamous never did time – well, maybe just once – check.)
Good man.
(Good man, and I puts it down, wanna say it twice, well I puts it down – check.)

Bridge

(Right now I'm better…)
What was I going through?
(Better than ever…)
That was the hardest time in my life.
(So much better now…)
But I do understand that you gotta go through it to get to it.

(My life is better…)
I just didn’t think I would be going through this - with you.
(My love is greater…)
But I’m so much better now,
(So much better, now.)

(Without you,)
Let the horns blow.
(I never felt so - good inside.)

(Without you,)
(I never felt so - good inside.)

Ad Lib

(I'm a good man.)
How could you just get up and walk away? See? –bu-
But when things got rough you quickly ran to trade me, somebody save me.
(I'm a good man)

There's one thing I know, so I'm gonna tell you.
That I'm a good man, thanks to you.

Good man.
Good man.
Good man.
Good man.
