I'm An Ordinary Man - Julie Andrews

Well after all Pickering I'm an ordinary man

 

Who desires nothing more

 

Than just an ordinary chance

To live exactly as he likes

And do precisely what he wants

An average man am I of no eccentric whim

 

Who likes to live his life free of strife

Doing whatever he thinks is best for him

 

Well just an ordinary man

 

But let a woman in your life

 

And your serenity is through

 

She'll redecorate your home

From the cellar to the dome

And then go on to the enthralling fun

Of overhauling you

 

Let a woman in your life

 

And you're up against a wall

 

Make a plan and you will find

That she has something else in mind

And so rather than do either

You do something else

That neither likes at all

 

You want to talk of Keats and Milton

She only wants to talk of love

You go to see a play or ballet

And spend it searching

For her glove Let a woman in your life

 

And you invite eternal strife

 

Let them buy their wedding bands

For those anxious little hands

 

I'd be equally as willing for

A dentist to be drilling

Than to ever let a woman in my life

 

I'm a very gentle man

 

Even tempered and good natured

Who you never hear complain

Who has the milk of human kindness

By the quart in every vein

A patient man am I down to my fingertips

 

The sort who never could ever would

Let an insulting remark escape his lips

 

Very gentle man

 

But Let a woman in your life

 

And patience hasn't got a chance

 

She will beg you for advice

Your reply will be concise

And she will listen very nicely

And then go out

And do exactly what she wants

 

You are a man of grace and polish

Who never spoke above a hush

 

All at once you're using language

 

That would make

A sailor blush Let a woman in your life

 

And you're plunging in a knife

 

Let the others of my sex

Tie the knot around their necks

 

I prefer a new edition of

The Spanish Inquisition

Than to ever let a woman in my life

 

I'm a quiet living man

 

Who prefers to spend the evening

In the silence of his room

Who likes an atmosphere as restful as

An undiscovered tomb

A pensive man am I of philosophical joys

Who likes to meditate contemplate

Free for humanities mad in human noise

 

Just a quiet living man

 

But let a woman in your life

 

And your sabbatical is through

 

In a line that never ends comes

An army of her friends

Come to jabber and to chatter

And to tell her what the matter is with you

 

She'll have a booming boisterous family

 

Who will descend on you en mass

She'll have a large wagnarian mother

With a voice that shatters glass

 

Let a woman in your life

 

Let a woman in your life

 

I shall never let a woman in my life
