Joe Tex - A Woman's Hands

You and I have come a long way together
Haven't we, baby?
Heh, I remember when times were bad
You stood right by me
Didn't you, darling?
Oh, and I love you for that
And I don't want your little heart to
Move for a thing
Because if I've only got one life to live like they say
Then I wanna spend that one life takin' good care of you
Because baby, I'm a true believer
In an old saying that I heard an old lady say one time
I was travelin' through the world on my way somewhere
I don't remember where it was
But I remember this old lady sittin' on her front porch
Lookin' at her hands
That the years had wrinkled and twisted
And as she looked at her hands
She looked back up at me and she said
The way she said "Son"
A woman's hands, hmm
Just weren't made to work hard
All the time, can't you just see that?

And I know a lot of men out there are gonna
Be mad at me for saying that
But I got to say it again

I said a woman's hands
Just weren't made to work hard
All the time
Here's what they were made for

[Verse 1]
They were made to rub a man's head
Make a man some bread
Fix him a good cup of coffee
And put his children to bed
That's what a woman's hands
Were made for, yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
And if you think that's something, listen to this

[Verse 2]
A woman's mind
Wasn't made to worry
All the time
And quicker the men realize that
The better off the world is gon' be
Listen to me
I said a woman's mind, huh
Wasn't made to worry
All the time, listen
It was made to think up clever little things
To do to surprise her man
And try to keep him smiling
As long as she can
That's what a woman's mind was made for

Oh, that's what a woman's mind was made for
