Everytime I Got A Man Around

Story Behind The Song

Valerie wrote the lyric's from experience. she married two lazy, no good men. It wasn't until she met me and after 19 years together, she can look back and laugh at the lazy men that were once part of her life. I came up with the hook and wrote the music and produced the song and I think it is one of my all time favorite songs.

Song Description

She's a player, and a lover, she complains about the men in her life as though they are responsible for all her woes. This is quirky, funny song done in a pop jazz feel that will make you laugh and many women will agree. Men are lazy and make a mess of everything.

EVERY TIME I GOT A MAN AROUND

EVERY TIME I GOT A MAN AROUND
MY STANDARD OF LIVING GOES TUMBLING DOWN
THEY FEED ME WITH THEIR LINES AND THEY TELL ME THEIR LIES
BUT I BELIEVE MY LOVE IS BLIND

THEY TELL ME BOUT' THE WOMEN THEY'VE HAD BEFORE
WHAT THEY BOUGHT THEM DOWN AT THE LOCAL STORE
THEY GIVE EM' FANCY CLOTHES JEWELRY AND CARS
BUT THE TRUTH BE KNOWN GIRLS THEY LEFT BEHIND A LOT OF SCARS

EVERY TIME..EVERY TIME I GOT A MAN AROUND
EVERY TIME MY STANDARD OF LIVING GOES TUMBLING WAY DOWN TO THE
GROUND

THEY ALL SEEM TO WORK UNTIL THEY GET NEAR ME
THEN IT'S SMOKES AND BEER AND WATCHING T.V.
THERE'S ALWAYS SOME EXCUSE WHY THEY CAN'T GO TO WORK
I'M TIRED OF SUPPORTING ALL THESE LAZY JERKS

YEAH THEY TELL ME, THEY TELL ME HEY I LOVE YOU
AND THEY GIVE ME...A PECK ON THE NECK
BUT I SAY HEY HONEY ALL I REALLY WANT IS .....
ONE ...GOOD...LONG...STEADY PAYCHECK

EVERY TIME..EVERY TIME I GOT A MAN AROUND EVERYTIME
MY STANDARD OF LIVING GOES TUMBLING WAY DOWN TO THE GROUND

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh


EVERY TIME I GOT A MAN AROUND
MY STANDARD OF LIVING GOES TUMBLING DOWN
THEY FEED ME WITH THEIR LINES AND THEY TELL ME THEIR LIES
BUT I BELIEVE MY LOVE IS BLIND

EVERYTIME, EVERYTIME I GOT A MAN AROUND
MY STANDARD OF LIVING GOES TUMBLING WAY DOWN TO THE GROUND


HEY HONEY, BUM, WHAT'S THAT YOU SAY
YOU WANT SOMETHING MORE FROM ME TODAY
HERE'S THE TICKET I'LL GIVE YOU MORE
HERE'S A GOOD SWIFT KICK RIGHT OUT THE DOOR

EXCELLENT! WISH I WROTE RECORDED,AND ARRANGED IT!!!
