What Do You Call a Man?

What Do You Call a Man? lyrics

What Do You Call a Man?

FRANCESCA
What do you call a man like that?
How do you even try to give it a name,
A classification?
What do you call a man like that?
Something from days gone by,
A kind of a wind blown from the past.
But were do you find it?
From what time or place or fairy-tale
Comes someone so ridiculous,
So earnest,
So strong?

It's clear enough that these are two great-looking people on either side of a bridge, and this bridge will be crossed. He returns from the bridge, gets in the car.

ROBERT
There we go. All done. You ready? Just give me one second.

But as she begins to sing, he indicates he needs one more minute. He takes a final look, then they drive home.

FRANCESCA
What do you call a man like this?
How to describe his hands,
So tense and so easy,
So controlled but unpredictable-
The tornado of his eyes
Shining bright,
Finding light?
Wanting something,
Knowing something,
Seeing something,
Something holy-
Something newly born
Without a name.
