Make A Man Out of You Yet

Album: Insatiable (2010)
  • I don't believe in superstition
    Or in soul mates at first glance
    I don't care about your star sign
    Or in a fairy tale romance

    Cause love is serious, love is dangerous
    Love's worth fighting the fight
    If you gonna go the distance boy in real life
    You're gonna have to prove yourself to me tonight

    I'll make a man out of you yet
    Teach you a lesson that you won't forget
    First you gotta give before you get
    And learn to say the things you won't regret
    And you gotta hold me till I feel it
    Show me the meaning of the word respect
    It's gonna take a real woman, baby
    To make a man out of you yet

    You talk about your lovers
    As if they're all in present tense
    Like you're the big man with the ladies
    And a hero to the gents

    Cause love is serious, love is dangerous
    Love's worth fighting the fight
    If you gonna go the distance boy in real life
    You're gonna have to prove yourself to me tonight

    I'll make a man out of you yet
    Teach you a lesson that you won't forget
    First you gotta give before you get
    And learn to say the things you won't regret
    And you gotta hold me till I feel it
    Show me the meaning of the word respect
    It's gonna take a real woman, baby
    To make a man out of you yet, you gotta know

    That a woman's heart is made of flesh and blood
    You gotta give it all from the start
    So put your arms around me, like you really mean it
    Like your body needs it

    I'll make a man out of you yet
    Teach you a lesson that you won't forget
    First you gotta give before you get
    And learn to say the things you won't regret
    And you gotta hold me till I feel it
    Show me the meaning of the word respect
    It's gonna take a real woman, baby
    To make a man out of you yet
