Bluesy little number. Awkward seduction song from when I was 19 and thought I had it all figured out... Ladies. Gentlemen. Who cares? I'm Dickins...


I'm an Australian man
If I have a reputation
I'll disprove it if I can
I'm real good at good
But you should see my bad
As hot as yo mumma
And as cool as... your dad...

I'll give you all
All that I can
I'll be your modern day ole fashion man...

I'll take you in the morning
And of course I can't leave you alone at night
I'll give you flowers every time that you lose a fight
Yes, I am a smart-arse
This I cannot hide
But I'll let you see me
I will let you see inside...

Repeat Chorus

I may not have claim on all of your time
But while I do
I want the world to know that you're mine
Because I can open jars
I'll give you jackets when you're cold
I'll give you good times
And a hand to hold...

Repeat Chorus X 3
