Jeff Buckley Be My Husband Lyrics

Last updated: 08/18/2006 11:00:00 AM

(A.Stroud)
Originally performed by Nina Simone. Jeff performed it live at Sin-é, New York, late in the night on December 31 1995. Being male, he had to make some changes to the lyrics, so his version is also known as Be Your Husband. He did also cut some verses.

Be your husband if you'll be my wife
Be your husband if you'll be my wife
Be your husband if you'll be my wife
Love and honor you for the rest of your life

Be your husband if you'll be my wife
Be your husband if you'll be my wife
Be your husband if you'll be my wife
Love and honor you for the rest of your life

If you promise me that I’ll be your man
If you promise me that I’ll be your man
If you promise me that I’ll be your man
I will love the best I can

Stick to the promise that you made me
Stick to the promise that you made me
Stick to the promise that you made me
That you’ll stay away from Johnny Lee

Oh mamma love me good
Oh mamma love me good
Oh mamma love me good
Oh mamma love me good

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

Don't you treat me so doggone mean
Don't you treat me so doggone mean
Don't you treat me so doggone mean
Oh you're the meanest woman i've ever seen

Oh mamma love me good
Oh mamma love me good
Oh mamma love me good
Oh mamma love me good

And I'll
Be your husband if you'll be my wife
Be your husband if you'll be my wife
Be your husband if you'll be my wife
Love and honor you for the rest of your life
