For Tom Patrick of Womanizer



I am your lover.
I am your lover.
I am a man of the world,
the world of love.

I am your lover, like it or not.
I am your lover so take what you got.
You’ve got to take it to the world. The world of love

A man and a woman, they got to stand together,
for better or worse, in fair or foul weather.
That’s what I believe. Till death bids us grieve

And times sure are tough. And life is unfair.
And we gotta work hard for the children we bear,
leaving nothing behind to blame on mankind.

Three women appear, each one a goddess.
But, which one is fairest? To choose would be madness.
But, that’s what they ask so I fulfill my task
and the Earth starts to spin and the sky caves in.

Now I’m just a youth with a good eye for beauty.
So don’t tell me that you do your duty
for you’re just like me and right here we can see
the siege of our lust and dust upon dust upon dust.

And they say there’s a way
that love will survive
That a new day will dawn
and we’ll all arrive
But till then, “Paradise”
will have to suffice.

I am your lover.
Be quick to discover
you ain’t got no other.
I am your lover.
I am your lover.
I am your lover.
