Occasional Man

1.
I must admit to a couple of things
  I've had a man or three, a couple wedding rings
  I've had the romance, I've had the trip to Rome
  But I must declare I've had my share of sharing my home
 
2.
Lately I'm loving just living alone
  No race for the bathroom, no waiting for the phone
  Just my clothes in the closet, my stuff on the shelf
  There's barely one thing that I can't do by myself
 
chorus I want an Occasional Man
  Just one who will see me when I say he can
  Thanksgiving, New Years Eve, and summer vacations
One man's who's showing up only for special occasions
  An Occasional Man, an Occasional Man
   
3.
Go out for birthdays? Well, maybe just mine
  Stay home in February, trade valentines
  My place in the country, his place in town
  That'd be enough for me to call it sleeping around
   
2nd chorus I want an Occasional Man
  Just one who will see me when I say he can
  Fourth of July and on a trip to distant nations
  One man's who's showing up for all exceptional occasions
  An Occasional Man, an Occasional Man
   
bridge Would I marry again? Don't guess I'll ever be ready
  Me, I'm thinking maybe I might wanna go steady

 
Man's chorus I could be your Occasional Man
  Only come calling when you say I can
  Help change the oil or help with cookies that you're makin'
  As long as you're not asking me to bring home the bacon
  Yes, occasionally I can be an Occasional Man
   
3rd chorus I want an Occasional Man
  Just one who will see me when I say he can
  Halloween, Labor Day, and all graduations
  One man's who's showing up for all my family occasions
  An Occasional Man, an Occasional Man, yeah
   
Coda That's who I'll be choosing, if only I can
  An Occasional Man, an Occasional Man
  An Occasional Man, an Occasional Man
 
Occasional Man
Full-length Master

"A friend suggested I write down what I'm looking for in a man before I get into online dating. I took his advice and wound up writing this song, instead. I grateful that Al "Doc" Mehl agreed to co-write it with me—he contributed all the funny lines." — San
