"Stronger Than Me" as written by Salaam Remi and Amy Winehouse....
You should be stronger than me
You've been here seven years longer than me
Don't you know you supposed to be the man?
Not pale in comparison to who you think I am
You always want to talk it through, I don't care
I always have to comfort you when I'm there
But that's what I need you to do, stroke my hair
'Cause I've forgotten all of young love's joy
Feel like a lady, and you my lady boy

You should be stronger than me
But instead you're longer than frozen turkey
Why'd you always put me in control
All I need is for my man to live up to his role
You always want to talk it through, I'm okay
I always have to comfort you every day
But that's what I need you to do, are you gay?
'Cause I've forgotten all of young love's joy
Feel like a lady, and you my lady boy

He said "the respect I made you earn
Thought you had so many lessons to learn"
I said "You don't know what love is get a grip
Sound as if you're reading from some other tired script"
I'm not gonna meet your mother anytime
I just want to grip your body over mine
Please tell me why you think that's a crime
I've forgotten all of young love's joy
Feel like a lady, and you my lady boy

You should be stronger than me
You should be stronger than me
You should be stronger than me
You should be stronger than me

    General Commentthis song is about her looking for her man to take the macho, role. she is also reflecting by saying:

    "I have forgotten all of young love's joy" which means when she was in the relationship with the man that was 7 years older, she of course thought it would be better because he was more mature. and now she misses the excitement from being with someone around her age.

    its rather intresting because as the song progresses, shes getting more and more frustrated.

    IE.

    1-You always wanna talk it through - I don't care!
    2-I always have to comfort you when I'm there
    3-But that's what I need you to do - stroke my hair!

    1- Always wanna talk it through- I'm ok,
    2-Always have to comfort you every day,
    3-But that's what I need you to do - are you gay?

    if you compare both lines of 1, 2 and 3.
    the state of annoyance increases.
    the first line 3 shows extreme sarcasm, like.. " yeah what i need is for you to stroke my hair.."
