What is man, child in adult years
Who is he, that can reduce a woman to tears
Is it in deep emotion, that we can only feel
What is it that gives him woman appeal.
Man must live with woman all his life
First his mother, then his wife,
Bathed in womanly affection, or is he lost
Does he ever stop to consider the cost.
Is it reaction to woman’s whiles
That show in his face, in frowns or smiles,
To make a man, a woman he needs
Isn’t it true, he goes where she leads.
He is taught economy at an early age
Who knows better then she, be a living wage
A cool calm mind, there is nothing she cannot achieve
A way of life in which she believes.
