I'm Finding It Harder To Be A Gentleman

Lyrics Information

well I'm finding it harder
to be a gentleman everyday
all the manners that I've been taught
have slowly died away
but if I held the door open for you
it wouldn't make your day

you think that I care
about me and only me
when every single girl need help climbing up a tree
well I know it don't take much to satisfy me
maybe it's whatever's in my hand
that's distracting me
but if I could find emotion
to stimulate devotion
well then you'd see

well I'm finding it hard to say
that I need you twenty times a day
I feel comfortable
so baby why don't you feel the same?
have a doctor come and visit us
and tell us which one is sane

well I never said I wouldn't
throw my jacket in the mud for you
but my father gave it to me
so maybe I should carry you
then you said "you almost dropped me"
so then I did
and I got mud on my shoes
