Song of the Day #3,501: ‘You Need a Man Around Here’ – Brad Paisley


Today’s Random Weekend selection comes from Brad Paisley’s 2005 album Time Well Wasted, his second of nine straight albums to hit #1 on the country charts (that streak is still going).

I rank Time Well Wasted as Paisley’s third best album, following American Saturday Night and Mud On the Tires.

Today’s SOTD is typical Paisley: playful, self-deprecating and catchy as hell.

[Verse 1]
You’ve sure got a real nice place
So don’t take this the wrong way
But I can tell by your decorating taste
You’ve been alone too long
You’ve got more candles than a midnight mass
That fancy mirror adds a touch of class
But do you know how good a mounted bass
Would look there on that wall

You need a man around here
You can’t do it all by yourself
To me it’s painfully clear
That you could use a little help
Someone to kill the spiders
Change the channel and drink the beer
Seems to me that you sure need
A man around here

[Verse 2]
Thumbing through your stack of magazines
I don’t see a Maxim or Field and Stream
I haven’t been in a room this clean
Since they took my appendix out
Well you’ve gotta be kidding me
Don’t tell me that thing is your TV
My laptop’s got a bigger screen
Baby, there ain’t no doubt


Someone to kill the spiders
And by the way, you’re out of beer
Seems to me that you sure need
A man around here
Yeah, it seems to me that you sure need
A man around here
