girls can’t do what the guys do lyrics – betty wright

the guys are gonna wander
go out and play sometimes
but, girls, you must not
let it get you down

just take this advice i give you
just like a mother
you try to match your
guy’s do for do
(don’t try to do the things
(that the guys do, no, no)
end up in the gutter

’cause, girls, you can’t do
what the guys do, no
and still be a lady

’cause, girls, you can’t do
what the guys do, no
and still be a lady, no, ho

and listen, girls
when you give your heart away
you can easily be hurt
and the least little wrong he does
always seems like dirt

so take this advice i give you
just like a mother
you try to match
your man’s do for do
(don’t try to things
that the guys do, no, no)
end up in the gutter

’cause, girls, you can’t do
what the guys do, no
and still be a lady

girls, you can’t do
what the guys do, no
and still be a lady
no, ho, oh

when you put your faith in one guy
sometimes he’ll make you happy
sometimes he’ll make you cry

but don’t lose your self respect
trying to get revenge
’cause no matter how you do it
(don’t try to things
that the guys do, no, no)
you’ll lose out in the end

’cause, girls, you can’t do
what the guys do, no
and still be a lady

girls, you can’t do
what the guys do, no
and still be a lady, no
