"Don't Put Him Down" as written by and Dory Langdon Previn....
oh babe
he loves you
but he just can't make it with you
and he just can't tell you it's true
how can he pass the test
when he just can't hardly move himself
let alone prove himself the best

oh babe
he wants you
but he just can't get it on as you planned
and i guess a girl just can't understand
how much a guy goes through
all she has to do is let herself
she doesn't have to get herself up
on cue
like a performing seal
in a zoo

how was last night's
performance babe?
was it better than
the night before?
are the old credentials
any good any good any good any more
or is the act beginning to bore you?
he can sing!
he can dance!
he can juggle!
he a regular one-man band
his costume's a little tattered
his label says
made in japan
but he beats his battered drum
and he rattles his empty can
and he somehow gets
his flag to fly
looka him
looka him
he's a man!

oh babe
inside him
it's like there's a
little kid in a jail
crying denying he's fragile and frail
hey looka him
he's a male
but it's the wail
of the weary minstrel
it's the dance
of the desperate clown
singing
don't put
don't put me down
if i fail
please babe
don't put me down
if i fail
