Story behind the song
This is basically the golden rule - the more you give, the more you get back. It's the first song I've managed to write and record in quite a while. I've recently been expanding my guitar collection, so I felt it was time to use them in some real recording. The rhythm parts are a mix of Strats and a Tele, while the solos use a Les Paul. The drum parts have an annoying amount of cymbal hiss, which I have not been able to remove completely. Recorded on the 788, this is also the first time I've been able to use my new Rode NT-1A microphone. All the guitar parts were close-miked with an SM-57 using a Vox Pathfinder amp. Thanks to Scott at Happy Feet Sound for help with post-production processing of some of the tracks.
Lyrics
When a man needs a woman, he knows what he has to do When a man needs a woman, just like I need you A man has to give more, give more than he gets If a man gives more than he gets, hell get plenty of lovin too You know what Im saying, there aint no use to hide You know just what Im saying, the feeling cannot be denied A man has to give more, give more than he gets If a man gives more than he gets, hell find plenty of lovin inside Let me take you by the hand, cause everything is right Let me lay you on the bed, then Ill reach up for the light A man has to give more, give more than he gets If a man gives more than he gets, hell get plenty of lovin tonight I just have to touch you baby, run my fingers through your hair I just have to touch you baby, and the sparks go everywhere A man has to give more, give more than he gets If a man gives more than he gets, theres plenty of lovin to share When a man needs a woman, he knows what he has to do When a man needs a woman, just like I need you A man has to give more, give more than he gets If a man gives more than he gets, hell get plenty of lovin too If a man gives more than he gets, hell get plenty of lovin too
