  • I may be old fashioned
    So what if I am
    I'm not any different
    To any other man
    I'm not one of those
    Who look for blood from a stone
    But I believe
    A woman's place is in the home.

    Now I'm not one to kid you
    You know it's not my style
    I wouldn't want to hurt you
    Not even for a while
    I'm all for a woman
    Who can make it on her own
    But I believe
    A woman's place is in the home.
    Ooh baby I believe, I do
    A woman's place is in the home.

    Wonder what would have happened
    Had a woman flattened
    Rocky Marciano's nose
    Would there have been
    A change of views
    Would women no longer be used
    The way they seem
    To think they're being

    I know what you're thinking
    And you've every right to moan
    But I believe, yes indeed, I do,
    A woman's place is in the home.
    Ooh baby I believe, I do
    A woman's place is in the home Writer/s: GILBERT O'SULLIVAN
