  • Listen baby don't even waste your tears on an insensitive man
    There's a better place for you
    I mean what you really need is someone who cares
    Someone who's gonna be there for you, someone like me
    Someone with sensitivity

    Girl, I know it's been hard since he went away
    And left you so sad you cry everyday
    Let me kiss your tears erase all your doubts
    Because for you I'm here, you won't be without love

    Don't need a man that'll give you money
    Come on let me show you just what you need honey (I got what you need)
    You don't need a man that'll treat you wrong
    You need a man with sensitivity (a man like me)

    Someone who can love you
    Someone who will need you
    Someone who will treat you right (like me girl)
    Someone who will hold at night
    Someone stable in your life (ah baby)
    You need a man with sensitivity
    A man like me (baby)(honey)
    Baby and I'm the man (ah you no, you no)
    Baby like i do baby (hang in their baby)
    You need a man with sensitivity
    A man like me

    See you need someone who's there like a gentleman
    If anybody can fit the description baby I can
    Someone who cares and dares to give himself completely
    You got it in me you need a man with sensitivity

    You need a man, not any man
    Warm and sensitive that's what I can give
    You need a man, not any man
    Warm and sensitive that's what I can give
    You need a man, not any man
    Warm and sensitive that's what I can give
    Man with sensitivity
    A man like me

    Don't need a man that'll give you money
    Come on let me show you just what you need honey (I got what you need)
    You don't need a man that'll treat you wrong
    You need a man with sensitivity (a man like me)

    Save a little love for me (sensitivity)
    Baby I got what you need (I got it)
    Man with sensitivity
    A man like me

    Hold on my darling
    Don't let me down
