single girl lyrics – manhattan transfer

when i was single
the life i led was mine
thought that when i married
i’d be happy al the time

lord i wish i was
a single girl again
lord i wish i was
a single girl again

when i was a single girl
the boys all courted me
i would move from man to man
just like a honeybee
single girls are free to roam
wherever love is found
now that i am married lord
you know i can’t get to town – no no

lord i wish i was
a single girl again
lord i wish i was
a single girl again

first he said he loved me
and now he treats me like a slave
the burden of this married life
i carry to my grave

lord i wish i was
a single girl again
lord i wish i was
a single girl again

(repeat 3 times to fade)
