I don't want him, you can have him
He's not worth fighting for
Besides there's plenty more where he came from

I don't want him, you can have him
I'm giving him the sack
And he can go right back where he came from

I'm afraid I never loved him
Sweetie he'd be better off with you
I could never make him happy

All I ever wanted to do was
Run my fingers through his curly locks
Mend his underwear and darn his socks

Fetch his slippers and remove his shoes
Wipe his glasses when he's read the news
Rub his forehead with a gentle touch

Mornings after when he's had a little too much
Kiss him gently when he cuddles near
And give him babies one for every year

So you see that I don't want him, you can have him
You can have him 'cos I don't want him
Because he's not the man for me

Then I'd close the window while he soundly slept
Then I'd raid the icebox where the food is kept
I'd fix the breakfast that would please him most

Eggs and coffee some apricot juice and some buttered toast
Then I'd go out and buy the papers
And when they've been read spend the balance of the day in bed

So you see that I don't want him, you can have him
You can have him 'cos I don't want him, because he's not my man
I don't want him, you can have him, you can have him, I don't want him
You can have him, I don't want him 'cos he's not the man for me
