What I Like In A Man

What I Like In A Man


I like my eggs over easy and my steak a little rare,
Tight Wrangler jeans and my kinky blonde hair,
I like holdin' hands and 'pitchin' woo'.

I like barrel racin' horses, My pick-up truck,
And all night lovin' ain't never too much!
But when it comes to what I like in a man...I like you!

I like the way you look at me
        I like the way you let me be me
                I like the way you hold me tight
                        And say you love me all through the night!

I like talkin' to my mama on the telephone,
She always knows when somethin's wrong,
And she never tries to tell me what to do.

I like the wind when it blows, walkin' naked in the rain,
Hearin' George Strait on the radio drives me insaine
But when it comes to what I like in a man...I like you!

    I just wanted to read this based on the title. Sounds like a combination of wild and free with a zest for love. A very sentimental and instructive poem for it tells me not to be overbearing. Good job and thanks for your comments.

    Lol. Thank you so much Duke. This is one of my country songs I've written and composed. Haven't done anything with them yet beyond putting them on practice discs. So glad you enjoyed.
