Subject: "What Do You Want The GirlTo Do"
In reply to: The Bear 's message, "If I was a carpenter" on 19:43:15 08/22/05 Mon

Only the version I used to hear was Bonnie Raitt singing What Do You Want The Boy To Do. Cause while he was building that house, because she was still on a man trip.

Verse 1:

So you think the girl is crazy

She eat up your lies like it's good
(Your lies like apple pie)

(She don't even cry)

She is not a fool

She's just tryin' to do what her heart says to
To love you

And as you take to the wind
(to the wind again she breaks down)

And as she breaks down within (within, within)


She waits for you patiently
Hopin' that someday you'll see

[2: That] all she really wants to be

Is yours and yours alone, eternally


What do you want the girl to do

[1: Don't you know] you're breakin' the child in two
[2: Can't you see]

What do you want the girl to do

All she really wants is you

Verse 2:

She knows what you are
Still she'll be your queen if you let her
(Just say the word today)
(Build the world around her)

Now and then you'll promise
All the way-out things you're goin' to get her
(You will see, you will see)
'Cause maybe she knows better
(You're so damn glad you found her, found her, years ago)

As she watched you come and go (all you'll show)
And as she watched your promises erode

What do you want the girl to do

Don't you know you're breakin' the child in two

What do you want the girl to do

Can't you see you're breakin' the child in two [fade]
