Mel Cooleys – Square Deal Lyrics

A girl of little consequence
Was dying to be a bride
When she saw him at the laundromat
And she followed him inside
He offered her some softener
But could not stem the tide
The water flowed, they shared a load
And she thanked him for the ride
Now this girl of little confidence
Was tired of being alone
So she fed him through the afternoon
And she let him drive her home
She swore that she'd adore him
With a love so overblown
That he grabbed some air and left her there
And promised he would phone
She wants a big square man
With a big square jaw

And a big square life so real
All she wants is love and a square deal
A girl of little competence
Sits waiting for a call
With perfumed air and perfect hair
And a love affair that's stalled
She faults herself for faltering
So frantic she might fall
For someone she knew secretly
Was nothing after all
She wants a big square man
With a big square house
And a big square hand to feel
All she wants is love and a square deal
She wants a big square man
With a big square job
And a big square heart of steal
All she wants is love and a square deal
