Lyrics


I'm looking for a hard headed woman

One who will take me for myself

And if I find my hard headed woman

I will need nobody else, no, no, no


I'm looking for a hard headed woman

One who will make me do my best

And if I find my hard headed woman

I know the rest of my life will be blessed

Yes, yes, yes


I know a lot of fancy dancers

People who can glide you on a floor

They move so smooth but have no answers, wo

When you ask them "What are you come here for?"

"I don't know" "Why?"


I know many fine feathered friends

But their friendliness depends on how you do

They know many sure fired ways

To find out the one who pays

And how you do


I'm looking for a hard headed woman

One who will make me feel so good

And if I find my hard headed woman

I know my life will be as it should

Yes, yes, yes


I'm looking for a hard headed woman

One who will make me do my best

And if I find my hard headed woman
