Lyrics ONCE SHE DRESSED
IN SILKS AND LACE,
OWNED A ROLLS-ROYCE CAR:
NOW SHE SEEMS
QUITE OUT OF PLACE,
LIKE A FALLEN STAR.
DRAPED AROUND MY KITCHEN SINK,
HAPPY AS CAN BE,
I JUST HAVE TO STOP
AND THINK
WHY SHE FELL FOR ME.

I'M NOT MUCH TO LOOK AT,
NOTHIN' TO SEE,
JUST GLAD I'M LIVIN'
AND LUCKY TO BE,
I GOT A WOMAN,
CRAZY FOR ME,
SHE'S FUNNY THAT WAY.
I CAN'T SAVE A DOLLAR,
AIN'T WORTH A CENT,
SHE DOESN'T HOLLER,
SHE'D LIVE IN A TENT,
I GOT A WOMAN,
CRAZY FOR ME,
SHE'S FUNNY THAT WAY.

THOUGH SHE LOVES
TO WORK AND SLAVE
FOR ME EV'RY DAY,
SHE'D BE
SO MUCH BETTER OFF
IF I WENT AWAY.

BUT WHY SHOULD I LEAVE HER,
WHY SHOULD I GO?
SHE'D BE UNHAPPY
WITHOUT ME I KNOW,
I GOT A WOMAN,
CRAZY FOR ME,
SHE'S FUNNY THAT WAY.

SHE SHOULD HAVE
THE VERY BEST,
ANYONE CAN SEE
STILL SHE'S DIFF'RENT
FROM THE REST,
SATISFIED WITH ME.
WHILE I WORRY,
PLAN AND SCHEME,
OVER WHAT I DO,
CAN'T HELP FEELING
IT'S A DREAM,
TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE.

I NEVER HAD NOTHIN',
NO ONE TO CARE,
THAT'S WHY I SEEM
TO HAVE MORE THAN MY SHARE,
I GOT A WOMAN,
CRAZY FOR ME,
SHE'S FUNNY THAT WAY.
WHEN I HURT HER FEELINGS
ONCE IN A WHILE,
HER ONLY ANSWER
IS ONE LITTLE SMILE,
I GOT A WOMAN,
CRAZY FOR ME,
SHE'S FUNNY THAT WAY.

I CAN SEE NO OTHER WAY
AND NO BETTER PLAN,
END IT ALL AND LET HER GO
TO SOME BETTER MAN.

BUT I'M ONLY HUMAN,
COWARD AT BEST,
I'M MORE THAN CERTAIN
SHE'D FOLLOW ME WEST,
I GOT A WOMAN,
CRAZY FOR ME,
SHE'S FUNNY THAT WAY.
