Lyrics
Now, listen here, girls
I’m gonna tell you
What I want right now

I want a rough lover
I want a man
I want a rough, tough lover
And I’ll find him if I can

He’s got to bite nails
Fight bears
And if I get sassy
Be a man who dares
To shut me up and kiss me
So I know he cares
I want a man

Don’t want a mean daddy
I want a boss
I want a mean, sweet daddy
Who the devil wouldn’t cross

He’s got to spit fire
Chew iron
Get mad and start roaring
Like a mountain lion
Then whisper that he loves me
So I know he’s mine
I want a man

I’m looking for a guy
Who’s big and strong
But weak for me
I’m looking for a guy
Who’ll ride around
But never, never set me free

I want a rough lover
I want a man
I want a rough, tough lover
With a sentimental plan

So he can kiss nice
Hug tight
He’s gotta be sweet and gentle
Day and night
But mean enough to make me
Want to treat him right
I want a man, oh, yeah

I’m looking for a guy
Who’s raving strong
But weak for me
I’m looking for a guy
Who’ll ride around
But never, never set me free

I want a rough lover
I want a man
I want a rough, tough lover
With a sentimental plan

So he can kiss nice
Hug tight
He’s gotta be sweet and gentle
Day and night
But mean enough to make me
Want to treat him right
I want a man

I want a man
I don’t want no creampuff, baby
Don’t want no butterfly
I want a man

Oh, yes, I do
Oh, yes, I do

Català – Amant Brusc
Ara, escolteu, noies
Us vaig a dir
El que vull ara mateix

Vull un amant brusc
Vull un home
Vull un amant brusc, dur
I el trobaré si puc

Ell, ha de mossegar claus
lluitar contra els óssos
I si em torno insolent
Ser un home que s’atreveixi
A fer-me callar i besar-me
Per tal de saber que li importa
Vull un home

No vull un home mesquí
Jo vull un cap
Jo vull un home mitjanament dolç
Que el diable no es voldria creuar

Ell ha de escupir foc
Mastegar ferro
Enutjar-se i començar a rugir
Talment un lleó de muntanya
I a continuació, dir-me en veu baixa que m’estima
Perque sàpiga que és meu
Vull un home

Estic buscant un home
Que sigui gran i fort
Però dèbil per a mi
Estic buscant un home
Que volti pel voltant
Però mai, mai, em deixi anar

Vull un amant brusc
Vull un home
Vull un amant brusc, dur
Amb un plà sentimental

Per tal que pugui besar agradablement
Abraçar fort
Ha de ser dolç i suau
Dia i nit
Però importar-me prou com per
Voler tractar-lo bé
Vull un home, oh, sí

Estic buscant un xicot
Qui sigui delirantment fort
Però dèbil per a mi
Estic buscant un xicot
Que volti pel voltant
Però mai, mai, em deixi anar

Vull un amant brusc
Vull un home
Vull un amant brusc, dur
Amb un plà sentimental

Per tal que pugui besar agradablement
Abraçar fort
Ha de ser dolç i suau
Dia i nit
Però importar-me prou com per
Voler tractar-lo bé
Vull un home

Vull un home
No vull un pa de pessic, nenes
No vull cap papallona
Vull un home

Oh, sí, ho vull
Oh, sí, ho vull
