The Right Kind of Woman
Mordewis ap Llys


I like a woman to talk to and to show her that I care
I need a lover to hold me all those times when there's no one else there
I want a friend to teach me how to get along in this world
But every time I meet the right kind of woman, I'm not her kind of girl

I don't need a life contract to love them just as they are
I don't care if they have big bucks or they drive a fancy car
I don't judge their appearance - her love would light up my day
But every time I meet the right kind of woman, my gender gets in the way

I'm in the right body, though in some sense, I might be queer
Women I am attracted to never seem to get too
ear It isn't that men turn me off, and I don't wear ladies' underwear
But every time I meet the right kind of woman, another one beats me there

I'm not the Statue of Liberty, I don't even get the tired and poor
I'm not the son of a carpenter, but I keep being shown the door
I never tugged on Superman's cape, and I don't mess around with Jim,
But just one time, I wish the right kind of woman would be looking for a “him”

I like a woman to talk to and to show her that I care
I need a lover to hold me all those times when there's no one else there
I want a friend to teach me how to get along in this world
But every time I meet the right kind of woman, I'm not her kind of girl
Yes, every time I meet the right kind of woman, I'm not her kind...
