i need a man to love lyrics – janis joplin

whoa, i need a man to love me.
don? t you understand me, baby?
why, i need a man to love.
i gotta find him, i gotta have him like the air i breathe.
one lovin? man to understand can? t be too much to need.

you know it
can? t be now
oh no
can? t be now
oh no
can? t be now
oh no
can? t be now
oh no
can? t be now
oh no
can? t be this loneliness
baby, surrounding me.

no, no, know it just can? t be
no it just can? t be
there? s got to be some kind of answer.
no it just can? t be
and everywhere i look, there? s none around
no it just can? t be
whoa, it can? t be
no it just can? t be, oh no!
whoa, hear me now.

whoa, won? t you let me hold you?
honey, just close your eyes.
whoa, won? t you let me hold you, dear?
i want to just put my arms around ya, like the circles going? round the sun.
let me hold you daddy, at least until the morning comes.

because it
can? t be now
oh no
can? t be now
oh no
can? t be now
oh no
can? t be now
oh no
can? t be now
oh no
can? t be this loneliness
baby, surrounding me.
no, no, no it just can? t be.
no it just can? t be
oh, baby, baby, baby, baby, just can? t be.
no, no, no
no it just can? t be

and why can? t anyone ever tell me, now?
no it just can? t be
i wake up one morning, i realize
no it just can? t be
whoa, it can? t be.
no it just can? t be
now go!

whoa, i need a man to love me
oh, maybe you can help me, please.
why, i need a man to love.
but i believe that someday and somehow it? s bound to come along
because when all my dreams and all my plans just cannot turn out wrong.

you know it
can? t be now oh no
can? t be now oh no
can? t be now oh no
can? t be now oh no
can? t be now oh no
can? t be just loneliness
baby, surrounding me

no, no, no, it just can? t be
no it just can? t be
oh, baby, baby, baby, baby, it just can? t be
no it just can? t be
and who could be foolin? me?
no it just can? t be
i? ve got all this happiness
no it just can? t be
come, come, come on, come on, come on, and help me now.
no it just can? t be
please, can? t you hear my cry?
no it just can? t be
whoa, help
