Boy and a Man

Album: Long Road (2019)
  • Baby I know that you're lookin' for Mr. Right
    I ain't saying I'm him but I'm willing to give it an honest try
    Maybe you could meet me in the middle and
    Maybe you could give me just a little bit of time
    And I'll show you that I want to hold you and make you mine
    But I won't stop there, no, I won't

    'Cause you deserve better than you've had before
    Right now you've got a fellow standing at your door
    I'll treat you like a lady, ain't just going to call you baby
    Couple kisses and walk away
    I ain't playing little games, I'm just trying to say
    Girl, that I've got a plan
    'Cause I know what you're missing
    I'ma show you the difference between a boy and a man
    Yeah, I know what you're missing
    I'ma show you the difference between a boy and a man
    Yes I am

    Baby I know you ain't looking for a hit and run
    You need someone to hold when the nights getting cold, let me be the one
    Ain't no rush we ain't got to hurry no
    Take our time, 'cause you ain't got to worry
    About me and believe that I got what you need and it meant something
    And I won't stop there, no, I won't

    'Cause you deserve better than you've had before
    Right now you've got a fellow standing at your door
    I'll treat you like a lady, ain't just going to call you baby
    Couple kisses and walk away
    I ain't playing little games, I'm just trying to say
    Girl, that I've got a plan
    And I know what you're missing
    I'ma show you the difference between a boy and a man
    Yes I am

    And I won't stop there
    No, I won't

    You deserve better than you've had before
    Right now you've got a fellow standing at your door
    I'll treat you like a lady, ain't just going to call you baby
    Couple kisses and walk away
    I ain't playing little games, I'm just trying to say
    Girl, that I've got a plan
    'Cause I know what you're missing
    I'ma show you the difference between a boy and a man
    Yeah, I know what you're missing
    I'ma show you the difference between a boy and a man
    Yes I am

    Oh... huh
    Mmhmm...
    Between a boy and a man
