"Mr. Man" as written by Alicia J Augello-cook and Jimmy Elton Cozier....
Something about the way you smiled at me just drove me wild
Wish I could know if you're alone, don't want to cramp your style
But I cannot deny the feel that I feel when I look straight into your eyes
Feel my heart beating fast for the challenge may you rise

I wanna know if you feel the way I do, I do
I wanna know if there's a chance for me and you, and you
If there's no way, meet at the bar and say you can't, you can't
'Cause I don't wanna be, I don't wanna be, I don't wanna be
Unfair to Mister Man, unfair to Mister Man, unfair to Mister Man
Unfair to Mister man, unfair

Like the way you've given me attention through the night
Maybe I've had too much for me, my man's right by my side
Ev'ry time I catch you watching me, feel something down my spine
I'll play the game, it's just for fun and only for tonight

I wanna know what makes you feel the way you do, you do
I think you're hoping there's a chance for me and you, yeah, you
Should I meet you at the bar and say we can't, we can't?
'Cause I don't wanna be, I don't wanna be, I don't wanna be
Unfair to Mister Man, unfair to Mister Man, unfair to Mister Man
Unfair to Mister man, unfair to Mister Man

I know all you wanna know is answers
'Cause you can give me what I need
We both know that we're attracted
Should we let our desires lead?

I wanna know if you feel the way I do, I do
I wanna know if there's a chance for me and you, and you
If there's no way, meet at the bar and say you can't, you can't
'Cause I don't wanna be, I don't wanna be, I don't wanna be
Unfair to Mister Man

I wanna know if you feel the way I do, I do
I wanna know if there's a chance for me and you, and you
If there's no way, meet at the bar and say you can't, you can't
'Cause I don't wanna be, I don't wanna be, I don't wanna be
Unfair

I wanna know if you feel the way I do, I do
I wanna know if there's a chance for me and you, and you
If there's no way, meet at the bar and say you can't, you can't
'Cause I don't wanna be, I don't wanna be, I don't wanna be
Unfair to Mister Man

    General CommentIt's that magnetic attraction, that feeling you get when you see someone across the room. She's saying that even though she's with her man, she's feeling him and can;t fight her desire for him. This is one of my fav. Alicia Keys songs, just because she pours her soul into her music and is so real. Ima marry Alicia Keys, mark my word

    General CommentI think Mr Man in this song is referring to her boyfriend by her side, not the delicious man across the room. Neither of them want to be unfair to Mr Man
