You Can Have Him Lyrics

You can have him, I don't want him
He's not worth fighting for
Besides, there's plenty more where he came from

I don't want him, you can have him
He isn't my concern
And he can just return where he came from

I could never make him happy
He'd be better off with you
I'm afraid I never loved him
All I ever wanted to do was

Run my fingers through his curly locks
Mend his underwear and darn his socks
Fetch his slippers and remove his shoes
Wipe his glasses when he read the news
Rub his forehead with a gentle touch
Mornings after when he's had too much
Kiss him gently when he cuddled near
Give him babies, one for every year
So you see

I don't wan' him, you can have him
You can have him, I don't wan' him
For he's not the man for me

I would look a trifle silly
Taking him away from you
That was never my intention
All I ever wanted to do was

Close the window while he soundly slept
Raid the icebox where the food is kept
Cook a breakfast that would please him most
Eggs and coffee and some buttered toast
Wake him gently with a breakfast tray
After breakfast clear the things away
Bring the papers, and when they've been read
Spend the balance of the day in bed
So you see

I don't wan' him, you can have him
You can have him, I don't wan' him
For he's not the man for me

I don't wan' him, you can have him
You can have him, I don't wan' him
For he's not the man for me
