    Song Lyrics / J / Jeff Buckley / Be My Husband Lyrics
    (a.stroud)
    Originally performed by nina simone. jeff performed it live at sin-?, new york, late in the night on december 31 1995. being male, he had to make some changes to the lyrics, so his version is also known as be your husband. he did also cut some verses.
    Be your husband if you'll be my wife
    Be your husband if you'll be my wife
    [original lyrics said "be my husband, man, i'll be your wife]

    Stick to the promise that you made me
    You've gotta stick to the promise that you made me
    Stay away from johnny lee
    [in the original "johnny lee" was "rosalie"]

    Oh daddy gotta love me good
    Oh daddy gotta love me good
    Oh daddy gotta love me good

    If you want me to, i'll cook and sew
    If you want me to, i'll cook and sew
    If you want me to, i'll cook and sew

    Don't you treat me so doggone mean
    Please don't treat me so doggone mean
    Cause you're the meanest man i've ever seen

    Oh daddy love me good yeah
    Oh daddy love me good yeah
    Oh daddy now love me good
    Oh daddy now love me good
