​I Need A Man

This song is by Grace Jones and appears on the album Portfolio (1977) and on the album Island Life (1985).

When I'm feelin' lonely,
Someone telephone me,
It's gettin' hard to pass my time.

Take me out'a dinin'
Watch me while I'm smiling,
Baby, it's a waste of time.

I need a man, perhaps a man like you,
I need a man, to make my dreams come true.

Say that you will find him,
Creeping up behind him,
Rulin' round' the town all day.

Well, I'm underestimated,
Hardly underrated,
Can't there be another way?

I need a man, perhaps a man like you,
I need a man, to make my dreams and I need a man.

And then I won't be feelin' lonely,
Knowing I'm the only one.

He'll understand,
All that I'm feelin' deep inside me,
Knowing that at last he's come.

Oh well, Oh well
Well, gettin' tired of lookin',
Wastin' all my cookin,
Ending in a dreadful rile.

Can somebody tell me,
Say to me, or spell me,
Why I'm feelin' lonely, wow! ow.

I need a man, perhaps a man like you,
I need a man to make my dreams,
And I need a man.

And then at night I won't be lonely,
Knowing I'm the only one.

He'll understand,
All, that I'm feelin' deep inside me,
Knowing that at last he's come.

Maybe that I'm dreaming,
Can't say they I've seen him,
Somehow, I've just got to find.

Someone understanding,
Long enough to hand him,
All that I've built up inside, the man!

I need a man like you, to make my dreams come true,
Perhaps that man is you!
