Radio XXX, side B, track 6: “Superwoman” by Karyn White

Karyn White - SuperwomanOh, Karyn White, after hearing this song, I really want some breakfast, and I want you to make it for me.  I’m not a big breakfast eater, Karyn White.  I love breakfast, but it usually involves waking up early to make it, and I like a LOT of breakfast, so by 10 AM I’m already ready to go take a nap as I have a major carb crash.  But man, if you were cooking breakfast for me every morning, I’d reconsider.  You don’t have to worry about the coffee, I’m not a coffee drinker, and I actually prefer my eggs sunny side up, but the toast, that’s perfect already, Karyn White, I like lightly toasted toast.  Just a slight crunch.  The suggestion of toast.  And you won’t have to worry about that kiss that’s missing.  You will be greeted with it with relish.  And don’t worry about getting home in time to make me dinner so that it’s waiting for me.  I can pick up something from Thundercloud Subs or Top Notch or something and we can watch TV on the couch.  I would definitely not be reading a paper if you were in the same room, and you will DEFINITELY not have to worry about just getting hugs from me as a token of appreciation.  Most definitely not.  All I ask is that you serenade me every night with that amazing voice of yours.  Plus the breakfast.  I WILL have to run this past my wife first, but I’m sure she’ll be totally cool with it.

“Superwoman”

<awesome Karyn White jam>

Early in the morning I put breakfast at your table
And make sure that your coffee has its sugar and cream

Your eggs are over easy
Your toast done lightly
All that’s missing is your morning kiss that used to greet me

Now you say the juice is sour
It used t’be so sweet
And I can’t help
But t’wonder if you’re talkin’ ’bout me

We don’t talk the way we used t’talk
It’s hurtin’ so deep
I’ve got my pride, I will not cry
But it’s makin’ me weeeep

(I’m not your superwoman)

(I’m not the kind of girl)
(That you can let down)
(And think that everything’s okay)
(Boy, I am only humaaaaan)

This girl needs more than occasional hugs as a token of love from you to me
Ooo babyyyyyeeeeeah

I fight my way through the rush hour tryin’ to make it home just for you
I want to make sure that your dinner will be waiting for you
But when you get there you just tell me
You’re not hungry at all
You said you’d rather read the paper
And you don’t want to talk
You like to think that I’m just crazy
When I saaay that you’ve changed
I’m convinced I know the problem
You don’t love me the same
Yooou’re just goin’ through the motions and you’re not being fair
I’ve got my pride, I will not cry
Still I can’t help but caaaaaaare
(I’m not your superwoman)

Oh no no no

(I’m not the kind of girl)
(That you can let down) Don’t let me down, don’t let me down
(And think that everything’s okay)
(Boy, I am only human) I’m only
Huuuuuuu-man yeah
(This girl needs more than occasional hugs as a token of love from you to me)
Oooo baby

Look into the corners of your mind

I’ll always be there for you
Through good
And bad times, but I can’t be that superwoman that you want me to be
I’ll give my everlasting love if you’ll return looove
To me

I’m not your superwoman

Ohh no ohh no

I’m not the kind of girl
That you can let down
And think that everything’s okay
(Boy, I am only human) I’m only huuumaaan
This girl needs more than occasional hugs as a token of love (from you to me)

Oh, if you feel it in your heart and ya understand me
Stop right where ya are, everybody sing along with me

Hoo, hoo, hoo oo oo oo oo

Hoooo
