WHO'S GONNA BE YOUR MAN?

WHO'S GONNA SHOE YOUR PRETTY LITTLE FEET?
AND WHO'S GONNA GLOVE YOUR HANDS?
AND WHO'S GONNA KISS YOUR RED RUBY LIPS?
WHO'S GONNA BE YOUR MAN?

I DON'T NEED NO MAN.
I DON'T NEED NO MAN.
PAPA'S GONNA SHOE MY PRETTY LITTLE FEET,
I DON'T NEED NO MAN.

IF PAPA'S GONNA SHOE YOUR PRETTY LITTLE FEET,
THEN WHO'S GONNA GLOVE YOUR HANDS?
AND WHO'S GONNA KISS YOUR RED RUBY LIPS?
WHO'S GONNA BE YOUR MAN?

I DON'T NEED NO MAN.
I DON'T NEED NO MAN.
MAMA'S GONNA GLOVE MY PRETTY LITTLE HANDS,
I DON'T NEED NO MAN.

IF PAPA'S GONNA SHOE YOUR PRETTY LITTLE FEET,
AND MAMA'S GONNA GLOVE YOUR HANDS,
THEN WHO'S GONNA KISS YOUR RED RUBY LIPS?
WHO'S GONNA BE YOUR MAN?

I DON'T NEED NO MAN.
I DON'T NEED NO MAN.
BROTHER'S GONNA KISS MY RED RUBY LIPS,
I DON'T NEED NO MAN.

IF PAPA'S GONNA SHOE YOUR PRETTY LITTLE FEET,
AND MAMA'S GONNA GLOVE YOUR HANDS,
AND BROTHER'S GONNA KISS YOUR RED RUBY LIPS,
WHO'S GONNA BE YOUR MAN?

I DON'T NEED NO MAN.
I DON'T NEED NO MAN.
THE ONLY, ONLY MAN I EVER DID LOVE,
IS ON THAT TRAIN AND GONE.

THE LONGEST TRAIN I EVER DID SEE,
WAS A HUNDRED COACHES LONG.
AND ON THAT TRAIN WAS THE ONLY, ONLY MAN.
AND ON THAT TRAIN AND GONE.
