Last night I was out on a date
Doing my best to keep a happy face
To tell the truth I was bored to tears
I need a man to keep me in high gear

I am a woman who?s dissatisfied
I?d rather live alone than swallow my pride
I don?t think my standards are too high
I?m just waiting for Mr. Right

He?s got to be unmaterialistic, but drive a new Saab
Be able to talk about his feeings, but be silent and strong
He?s got to read Gloria Steinhem, but pay for my dinner
Be completely uncompetitive, but always a winner


My friends all say you?re going to get left behind
Before you find someone to suit your finicky tastes
But that?s OK, ?cause I?ve got time
And good things come to those who wait

Sometimes I?m ready to settle for less
But Mama always told me hold out for the best
But look what she did when the choice was hers
You know Dad?s not exactly Mr. Universe
