Nina Simone
I love dancing
Crazy romancing
Fellas advancing constantly

Good healthy clinging
Quietly bringing on a spree

Two people watchin’ tv!


I’m not ready
To quit bein’ free
And I’m not willing

De doo de doo
De-doo de-doo
Doo doo doo

Cookin’ dinner
Lookin’ no thinner
Gray elbows and
A sudsy sea

Marriage is for old folks
Cold folks
And it’s not for me!
One husband
One wife
