She had sulky smile
She took her standard pose as she presented herself
She had sultry eyes
She made it perfectly plain that she was his for a price

But he said, "Leave me alone, I'm a family man
And my bark is much worse than my bite"
He said, "Leave me alone, I'm a family man
If you push me too far I just might"

She wore her hurt surprise
As she rechecked her make-up to protect herself
She showed less than pride
She made it totally clear that she was his for a night

But he said, "Leave me alone, I'm a family man
And my bark is much worse than my bite
Please, just leave me alone, I'm a family man
If you push me too far I just might"

She gave him her look
It would have worked on any other man in sight
He could not mistake
She wanted to go back with him and spend the night

But he said, "Leave me alone, I'm a family man
And my bark is much worse than my bite
Please, just leave me alone, I'm a family man
If you push me too far I just might"

She turned, tossed her head
And then she started to make her final exit line
She showed real disdain
As if explaining again, she could be his for a price

But he said, "Leave me alone, I'm a family man
And my bark is much worse than my bite"
He said, "Leave me alone, I'm a family man
If you push me too far, I just might"

But he said, "Leave me alone, I'm a family man
And my bark is much worse than my bite"
He said, "Leave me alone, I'm a family man
If you push me too far I just might"

But he said, "Leave me alone, I'm a family man
And my bark is much worse than my bite"
He said, "Leave me alone, I'm a family man
If you push me too far I just might"

He said, "Leave me alone, I'm a family man
And my bark is much worse than my bite
He said, "Leave me alone, I'm a family man
If you push me too far I just might" (might, might, might, might, might)

    the lyrics above r not the same as the Hall and Oats version. there r subtle differences, mostly to the womens advantage. Without being sexist. It wuz still very politically incorrect. but.... Hall and Oats gave the girl more luv. I never get tired ov listening to it. never.
