Not Gonna Do It That Way

 Words & Music by Monica Dennington (copyright 2002)

I need a man who’s gonna wait for me,
one that’s strong enough to pass the day.
Oh, it wouldn’t be too hard to pass the night with me-
that’s a game any fool can play.
And I don’t need no fool,
need someone strong and wise-
A man that’s smart enough to hold out
for the prize,
And when my prince comes riding down that aisle, he’s
gonna find
My love was worth the wait, it was worth
all his time.

I said I’m worth every moment, yeah, I’m worth every year
I won’t throw myself away, I’ll throw you out on your ear…

{CHORUS}
Don’t you know that love’s not easy to do
Even though I know it’s easy to say
Won’t cheat my Mr. Right
just for the pleasure at hand-
No, I’m not gonna do it that way.

So honey if you’re scared of love that loves too hard,
you can step along on down your way,
No, pretending I don’t feel the love that’s in my heart-
that’s a game only fools will play…
And if you tend to suffer
from a case of that roving eye,
well, you can turn and walk away, you won’t be
wasting my time-
Cause I know I deserve the best because I’m
saving mine
And my love is worth the wait, it’s worth
all your
precious time…

I said I’m worth every moment, yeah, I’m worth every year
I won’t throw myself away, I’ll throw you out on your ear…

{CHORUS}
Don’t you know that love’s not easy to do
Even though I know it’s easy to say
Won’t cheat my Mr. Right
just for the pleasure at hand-
No, I’m not gonna do it that way.

Don’t need no liar, Don’t need no coward
Don’t need no boy pretending
to be a man…
When your desire burns like a fire-
Will your respect for me win
out in the end?-
Tell me,
will your love win out
in the end…

{CHORUS}

If you want to be
treated like a king
Well, honey, I know how to do it,
but just remember one thing:
A king don’t want no flower
that’s been spread all over town-
so if you try to steal my shine, you won’t be
wearing this crown-
I guarantee you won’t be
wearing this crown—

{CHORUS}

{CHORUS}
