"the old RCA clicks on again
the men seem handsome who sing For My Own
on Ed Sullivan

the house is as neat and tidy as it ever has been
or perhaps ever will be
they didn’t care about its neatness then
nearly as much as they pine for its neatness now




I want you
I knew it from day one
You could be more than fun
And you'd never run
You'd be mine, all mine

I need you
There's no other choice
So I'll raise my voice
'Cause boys will be boys
And I want to be your man

Don't you understand?
I will love you to pieces, darling,
I want you for my own

I'll make you an offer
That you won't want to refuse
I will promise to hold you forever
No matter what you do

You deserve something better
Than a life lived alone
Don't care what you say, it'll be OK,
You don't have to say a word

Your silence is preferred

I'll be anything that you want me to be
Just as long as you show me you love me
Don't care if it's true

Doesn't change how I feel for you
Doesn't change how I want you
For my own
