“I’m Your Man” ~ by Leonard Cohen

If you want a lover,
I’ll do anything you ask me to
And if you want another kind of love,
I’ll wear a mask for you
If you want a partner, take my hand
Or if you want to strike me down in anger,
Here I stand
I’m your man

 

If you want a boxer,
I will step into the ring for you
And if you want a doctor,
I’ll examine every inch of you
If you want a driver, climb inside
Or if you want to take me for a ride,
You know you can
I’m your man

 

Ah, the moon’s too bright
The chain’s too tight
The beast won’t go to sleep
I’ve been running through these promises to you
That I made and I could not keep
But a man never got a woman back,
Not by begging on his knees
Or I’d crawl to you baby
And I’d fall at your feet
And I’d howl at your beauty
Like a dog in heat
And I’d claw at your heart
And I’d tear at your sheet
I’d say please, please
I’m your man

 

And if you’ve got to sleep
A moment on the road,
I will steer for you
And if you want to work the street alone,
I’ll disappear for you
If you want a father for your child,
Or only want to walk with me a while
Across the sand
I’m your man

 

(If you want a lover…)
