Strongman

Strongman

Luscious Jackson

when a man can
take a stand
and wash his hands
of his scams
and watch his woman
stand unafraid
aid her in her fight
to get paid
help her get her
medicines made
let her step on out
of the shade

and i will call him
super solid
and i will call him
super solid

it takes a strongman
to stand by a strong woman
it takes a strongman
yes it does
it takes a strongman
to stand by a strong woman
it takes a strongman
yes it does

if love sex
is the soul vexed
is the earth next
we need respect

can we love outside
of the clan
where's the sister
in brotherman
back to back
divided we stand
can we put some love
in the land?
i will call him supersolid
i will call him supersolid

it takes a strongman
to stand by a strong woman
it takes a strong man
yes it does
it takes a strongman
to stand by a strong woman
it takes a strongman
yes it does

conquering, stealing
wheeling and dealing
tell me is this planet
healing?
conquering, stealing
wheeling and dealing
tell me is this planet
healing?
when a man knows
where he came from
he can't tell me
i am shameful
and i will call him
supersolid
i will call him
supersolid

it takes a strongman
to stand by a strong woman
it takes a strongman
to stand by a strong woman
it takes a strongman
it takes a strongman

he can stop trying
to get even
he will know he's
here for a reason
to stand beside
his woman in peace
she's got the way
to release him
