"Be My Husband" as written by and Andy Stroud....
Be my husband, I'll be your wife
Be my husband, I'll be your wife
Be my husband, I'll be your wife
Outside you there is no place to go.

If you want me to I'll cook and sew
If you want me to I'll cook and sew
If you want me to I'll cook and sew
Outside you there is no place to go.

Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good

Please don't treat me so doggone mean
Please don't treat me so doggone mean
Please don't treat me so doggone mean
you're the meanest man I ever seen

Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good

Stick to the promise man, that you made me
Stick to the promise man, that you made me
Stick to the promise man, that you made me
That you'll stay away from Rosalie

Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good

    General CommentRepetitive or not this song is brilliant. It reminds me a lot of the when women were not considered as important as men. When men controlled women, they just did what they were told.

    General Commentthis is originally by Nina Simone, but must be honorably noted by Jeff Buckley's cover on the Live at Sin-e album. i haven't heard Damien's cover.

    General CommentSong was written by Nina Simone. Jeff Buckley's cover on Live at Sin-e is a great one (love that man) but Lisa's version is good too. Different, very tribal definitely, but good.
