lyrics

Whole Man
(c) 2013 Pamela Cardullo Ortiz

LOUISA:
Bring me a whole man, and nothing less
Only a whole man can give me that sweet caress
That my whole woman is longing for.
Don’t you bring no half man ‘round my door.

I want your whole heart, a half won’t do
Only a whole heart can love me through and through
If you love me half-hearted it won’t be nice.
You’ll only get me half-way to paradise.

In my whole life, I could not see
There might be a whole man like you out there for me.
I waited my whole life for a real man’s touch
I’m not giving it up for half as much!

TOM:
There’s not a living man who can compete
Without a woman’s love, he’s incomplete.
Not ‘til I have her, hold her, make her mine,
Will my star begin to shine.

So baby, give me what you got to give
The breathe upon your lips is what I need to live
Do not deprive me of a brother’s due
‘Cause you’re made for me and I’m made for you.

LOUISA:
And that is where you have me wrong
It’s what I’ve been telling you throughout this whole damn song
Until you’re all you need, no longer bought and sold
‘Til you can stand alone without a hand to hold
Until your man enough to let me be
You can’t be the man for me.
