Better With a Man lyrics

Better With a Man

Henry:
When a fellow needs a little helping hand
Who'll be there? It's almost guaranteed
No one else could ever really understand
Only another man knows what you need
And when a man has fallen down upon his knees
In such a moment, who'd be better than
Someone who's self controlled
Someone who's strong and bold
Someone who's good as gold
It's better with a man

Monty:
Better with a man

Henry:
Then you agree, my friend.

Monty:
Indeed i do.

When a man is lonely, he can always find
Another man who's feeling just the same (henry: that's it. Yes, he can.)
Drink will help you get your troubles off your mind
You'll both be buying before you know his name (oh, blotto and squiffy!)
And in that rousing climax when your horse comes in (come on, ponzo. Come on, ponzo.)
Who will cheer as loudly as he can (i will.)
Only a man would see
The meaning of victory
Oh, the comraderie
It's better with a man

Henry:
Better with a man

Both:
Women have much to recommend

Henry:
Lord knows i've had my share
Heh heh

Both:
But when a fellow needs a friend

Henry:
That's a totally different affair

Monty:
Women are soft against your skin
They're awfully nice to nestle with

Henry:
But when the sport is masculine

Both:
You need a man to wrestle with

Gentlemen have secrets they will never tell
Oh, they will never tell
They'll never tell their wives

Henry:
Married men know there are things you must not say

Both:
Discretion is the only way that love survives

Men are always there
Always there to share
And take good care
As mates, as brothers
Take a look at us
It's been ever thus
Since boarding school began

Henry:
Women are too complex

Monty:
Women too often vex

Both:
Men are a simpler sex

Henry:
It's better with a man

Monty:
Better with a man

Henry:
Better with a man

Both:
Better with a man

Bottoms up!
