Custom Made Woman Blues

print

Well I tried to be the kind of woman you wanted me to be
And it’s not your fault that I tried to be what I thought you wanted to see
Smilin’ face shinnin’ hair clothes that I thought you’d like me to wear
Made to please and not to tease it’s the custom made woman blues.

Yes I tried to be the kind of woman you wanted me to be
And I tried to see life your way and say all the things you’d like me to say
Lovin’ looks gentle hands an guaranteed to keep a’ holdin’ your man
Made to please and not to tease it’s the custom made woman blues.

And now you say you’re tired of me and all of those things I thought you wanted me to be
Is it true you want some one who knows how to think and do on her own
Lord it’s hard to realize the lessons I learned so was young were nothing but lies
Made to please and not to tease it’s the custom made woman blues
Made to please and not to tease it’s the custom made woman blues.
