Want Ads
Honey Cone Lyrics


Wanted, young man single and free
Experience in love preferred
But will accept a young trainee
Oh I'm gonna put it in the want ads
I need a love that's true
Gonna put it in the want ads
My man and I are through

At home I find myself
Lost and all alone
My man is playing the field
The thrill is gone
He stays out all night
Says he's with the boys
But lipstick on his collar
Perfume on it too
Tells me he's been lying
Tell ya what I'm gonna do
I'm gonna put it in the want ads (want ads)
This girl's in misery
Gonna put it in the want ads
Somebody rescue me

I spend my nights alone
Cryin' bitter tears
Although I cry out loud
Nobody really hears
And when I need him most
He's never by my side
He's either playing cards
Or drinking at the bar
He thinks that I'm a fool
I'm going to the evening news
Gonna put it in the want ads (want ads)
I need somebody new
Gonna put it in the want ads
My man and I are through

Extra extra, read all about it
Wanted, young man single and free
Experience in love preferred
But will accept a young trainee

Oh, oh oh

Lipstick on his collar
Perfume on it too
Tells me he's been lying
I'm going to the evening news
Gonna put it in the want ads (want ads)
I need somebody new
Gonna put it in the want ads
My man and I are through
Gonna put it in the want ads
This girl's in misery
Gonna put it in the want ads
Please somebody rescue me
Gonna put it in the want ads (want ads)

Lizzy Laronde

NEVER

Barb G Travels

It was sampled on a real cool song called Because I’m Me by the Avalanches. It has 35 million views. What a hit then and now. 😁

Angela Bell

Wooowww!!!

Lateshia Childs

Yes sure was, I just discovered Avalanches last month I believe I’m hooked on their music. I just brought their new CD

Paul Christman

I bought this single and Carole King's "It's Too Late" one summer evening at one of those "membership" department stores on an after dinner ice cream outing with my family. I spent half of my monthly chore allowance on 'em. 1971. All of ten years old. Life was still a sensory overload amusement park ride full of neat new things and experiences. And the music back then was great !!! Thanks for uploading !

Charlotte Gray

1971 I was 10 years old. I still remember this song and how much we loved it! Nothing like the good ole days! We had “real” music back then! Musicians actually played the instruments! LOL.

Pamka

@Charlotte Gray well, you have 4 years to get there, but close enough. Maybe one day you will be able to accept change and accept that there's nothing such as "real music"

Charlotte Gray

Pamka Us "Elderly" don't have time for this nonsense. That's why we have lived to be elderly. Apparently you did not take a good look at my picture. I don't look anything like an elderly person. Hopefully you'll be blessed to be elderly yourself one day.

Pamka

@Charlotte Gray idk man, what you are saying here sure does seem like it. Oh well, the elderly hate change, how unpredictable
