I Need A Man To Love

Janis Joplin, Sam Andrew

I - I need a man to love me.
Don't you understand me baby ?
Wye - eye - eye, I need a man to love.

I gotta find him, I gotta have him like the air I breathe.
One lovin' man to understand, can't be too much to need.
You know it

Can't be now -- Oh no
Can't be now -- Oh no
Can't be now -- Oh no
Can't be now -- Oh no
Can't be now -- Oh no
Can't be this loneliness
Baby, surrounding me.

No - no - no, it just can't be

--No it just can't be

There's got to be some kind of answer.

--No it just can't be

And everywhere I look, there's none around

--No it just can't be

Whoaaaaa, it can't be

--No it just can't be, oh no!

Oowa oowa, hear me now.

Whoa, won't you let me hold you ?
Honey, just close your eyes.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, won't you let me hold you, dear ?

I want to just put my arms around ya like the circles a-going 'round the sun.
And-a-let me hold you daddy, at least until the morning comes.
Because it

Can't be now -- Oh no
Can't be now -- Oh no
Can't be now -- Oh no
Can't be now -- Oh no
Can't be now -- Oh no

Can't be this loneliness
Baby, surrounding me.
No, no, no it just can't be.

--No it just can't be

Oh, baby, baby, baby, just can't be.
No, no, no

--No it just can't be

And why does anyone ever tell me, now ?

--No it just can't be

I wake up one morning, I realize

--No it just can't be

Whoaaaaa, it can't be.

--No it just can't be

Oh no!

Whoa, I - I need a man to love me
Oh, maybe you can help me, please.
Wye - eye - eye, I need a man to love.

But I believe that someday and somehow that it's bound to come along
Because when all my dreams and all my plans just cannot turn out wrong.
You know it

Can't be now --Oh no
Can't be now --Oh no
Can't be now --Oh no
Can't be now --Oh no
Can't be now --Oh no

Can't be just loneliness
Baby, surrounding me.
No, no, no, it just can't be

--No it just can't be

Oh, baby, baby, baby, baby, it just can't be

--No it just can't be

And who could be foolin' me ?

--No it just can't be

I've got all this hurt inside

--No it just can't be

Come, come, come on, come on, come on, and help me now.

--No it just can't be

Please, can't you hear me cry?

--No it just can't be

Whoa... ¥Ç¥
