MAN SMART, WOMAN SMARTER

THE WOMAN GOT MEN LIKE WE ALL KNOW.

SOME SAY MAN BUT I SAY NO
TO FIND OUT WHICH ONE IS SMARTER.
I SAY LET US PUT MAN AND WOMAN TOGETHER.

CHORUS:
NOT ME. IT,S THE PEOPLE WHO SAY
THAT THE MEN ARE LEADING THE WOMEN ASTRAY.
BUT I SAY THAT THE WOMEN OF TODAY
ARE SMARTER THAT THE MEN IN EVERY WAY.

I SUPPORT A LITTLE GIRL INDEPENDENTLY
SHE SAID SHE WAS MAKING BABY FOR ME.
WHEN THE BABY BORN I WENT TO SEE.
THE EYES WERE BLUE, IT WAS PORTUGUESE.

ADAM AND EVE LIVED IN PARADISE
THEY LAY ALL DAY. EVERYTHING WAS NICE.
TILL EVE MET THE SNAKE. PARADISE LOST.
SHE MADE ADAM WORK FROM THAT DAY ON.

CHORUS
METUSELEM SPENT ALL HIS LIFE IN JEST
HE LIVED WITH ONE WOMAN NINE-HUNDRED YEARS
ONE DAY HE DECIDED TO HAVE SOME FUN.
HE NEVER LIVED TO SEE NINE-HUNDRED AND ONE.
