This song is by Howard Ashman and appears on the musical Little Shop of Horrors (1982) by ​Alan Menken and on the movie soundtrack Little Shop of Horrors (1986) by ​Alan Menken.

Seymour:
Lift up your head
Wash off your mascara
Here, take my Kleenex
Wipe that lipstick away
Show me your face
Clean as the morning
I know things were bad
But now they're okay

Suddenly Seymour
Is standing beside you
You don't need no makeup
Don't have to pretend
Suddenly Seymour
Is here to provide you
Sweet understanding
Seymour's your friend

Audrey:
Nobody ever
Treated me kindly
Daddy left early
Mama was poor
I'd meet a man
And I'd follow him blindly
He'd snap his fingers
Me, I'd say "sure"

Suddenly Seymour
Is standing beside me
He don't give me orders
He don't condesend
Suddenly Seymour
Is here to provide me
Sweet understanding
Seymour's my friend

Seymour:
Tell me this feeling
Lasts till forever
Tell me the bad times
Are clean, washed away

Audrey:
Please understand that it's
Still strange and frightenin'
For losers like I've been
It's so hard to say...

Suddenly Seymour

Seymour and Downtown girls:
(Suddenly Seymour)

Audrey:
He purified me

Seymour and Downtown girls:
(He purified you)

Audrey:
Suddenly Seymour

Seymour and Downtown girls:
(Suddenly Seymour)

Audrey:
Showed me I can

Seymour and Downtown girls:
(Yes you can!)

All
Learn how to be more

Audrey:
The girl that's inside me

Seymour and Downtown girls:
Ooh, ooh, ooh

Seymour:
With sweet understanding

Audrey:
With sweet understanding

Seymour:
With sweet understanding

Audrey:
With sweet understanding

All
Sweet understanding
Seymour's my (your)
MAN!
