I'm Finding It Harder to Be a Gentleman
The White Stripes Lyrics


Well I'm finding it harder
To be a gentleman every day
All the manners that I've been taught
Have slowly died away
But if I held the door open for you
It would make your day

You think that I care
About me and only me
When every single girl needs help
Climbing up a tree
Well I know it don't take much
To satisfy me

Maybe it's whatever's in my head
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

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

Well I'm finding it harder
to be a gentleman every day
all the manner that I've been taught
have slowly died away
but if I held the door open for you
It would'nt make your day

You think that I care
about me and only me
when every single girl needs help
climbing up a tree
well I know it don't take much
to satisfy me

Maybe it's whatever's in my head
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

I'd never said I wouldn't

but my father gave it to me so
maybe I should carry you
then you said
You almost dropped me
so then I did

If the White Stripes came out during the 70's they would be one of the "best bands of the generation"

Max Mustermann

@Berlain Ever Really? Wow, I didn't know that.

Berlain Ever

^ they’re underrated. I didn’t even know Jack White was that good but on ball and biscuit he goes psycho. He was also involved with “steady as she goes”. Jack white married his drummer but they broke up

Max Mustermann

They are anyway
