She Doesn't Want Me

Gregory Isaacs

Don't let mummy speak your mind
Let's go make hay while the sun shine, lord no

She doesn't want me to be your man
As far as I can understand
We've got make some other plans, yeah
Your mummy doesn't want me to be your man

I've done the best thing I could do, do be do be do
And to do yourself(?), you'd never be untrue
You've reached a stage of maturity
And I promise you a lifetime security

But, she doesn't want me to be your man
As far as I can understand, believe me
We've got to make some other plan, cause
Your mummy doesn't want me to be your man,
your man, to be your man

To the stars and the moon I swear, lord no
And I promised mummy, I'd take good care
The love you gave was to a limit, yeah
You gave it back in five minutes, lord

But, she doesn't want me to be your man
As far as I can understand, believe me
We've got to make some other plan, lord
Your mummy doesn't want me to be your man,
Your man, to be your man

We share the breeze in spring, oh yeah,
And the heat in summer
In autumn it will be sweet, so very sweet
And we'll let winter go take a seat

But, she doesn't want me to be your man, no
As far as I can understand, lordie lordie
We've got to make some other plan
Your mummy doesn't want me to be your man
Your man, to be your man

You're not a child, you're fully grown
and you've got a mind of your own
Don't let mummy speak your mind

As far as I can understand
We've got to make some other plan, yeah lord
Your mummy doesn't want me to be your man, your man, to

You've now reached a stage of maturity
And I promise a lifetime of security

But, she doesn't want me to be your man, no
She doesn't want me to be your man, no
She doesn't want me to be your man
Your mummy doesn't want me to be your man, your man, to

I wanna be your man, your man, to be your man
Don't care what mummy say
