The Kind Of Man A Woman Needs
Barbra Streisand

The Kind Of Man A Woman Needs

Handsome
No, my man ain't handsome
But there's a trace
Of a wondrous grace
In his weary face

Life has done its best to break him
But his strength and courage
Make him just
The kind of man a woman needs

Tender
He ain't always tender
But in his eyes
Something warm and wise
Lifts me to the skies

If his heart ain't always showing
It's a comfort just to know him
He's the kind of man a woman needs

Sometimes he'll grow angry
At some foolish thing I do
Than he'll forgive to spare me pain
Times he'll know I'm troubled

So he'll laugh to cheer me through
Till my heart is light
As Summer rain

Youthful
No, my man ain't youthful
That time's gone by
But his head is high
And his dreams won't die

Though he's had his share of sorrow
He looks forward to tomorrow
He's the kind of man a woman needs
He's the kind of man a woman needs
