I Want to Come Back as a Man

Lindy Gravelle/Don Pfrimmer

When I heard this song, I knew I had to meet the girl who wrote this one!  Lindy and I now write songs together and we’ve become good friends too.

Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray dear Lord my soul to keep
Next time make me out of clay
Adam’s rib ain’t all that great

I want to come back as a man
I’ve been a woman as long as I can
I want to lay on the couch and watch TV
And let some good looking honey cook dinner for me
I want to think about sex all the time
I’ll drink beers with those buddies of mine
Lord give me a break if you do it again
I want to come back as a man

There’ll be no shaving my legs
Curling my hair and I won’t have to wear a dress
I’ll make a lot more money for a lot less work
Plenty of golf and no PMS
I’ll drive in pickup trucks and puff on big cigars
I wouldn’t need nobody’s help to open jelly jars
I’d throw my old panty hose in the nearest ditch
I’d give myself a big ol’ scratch
Anywhere I itch

Well when I get down it’s good to remember
What’s good for the goose is good for the gander
Now I don’t know if I’d make a good man or not
But I’m looking forward to having my shot
