Amanda's Boy

(unreleased song, 1983)

Lyrics by Tori Amos

Verse 1:

If you ever wanted to be another woman
It's Amanda
You never would believe
the magic man that leaves
with Amanda

He's got emeralds for eyes
that even hypnotize Amanda
She's teasin' you with bait
'cause she loves to hear you say
I can't believe he's real
But she's too wicked to
let me near him

Chorus:

Oh what Amanda's boy what he
do to me
Why won't Amanda's boy what he
do to her do to me
Oh why Amanda's boy what he
do to me
You know I need a man
Amanda
Amanda's boy
You know I need a man
Amanda
A man
Amanda's boy
Oh boy

Verse 2:

If you ever wanted to be another woman
it's Amanda
She swings her hair of bronze
on the magic wand that her hands touch
I know she knows I hide out to find out
What her man does
She's teasin' me with bait
'cause she loves to
hear me say
I can't believe he's real
but she's too wicked to
let me near him

Chorus:

Oh what Amanda's boy what he
do to me
Why won't Amanda's boy what he
do to her do to me
Oh why Amanda's boy what he
do to me
You know I need a man
Amanda
Amanda's boy
You know I need a man
Amanda
A man
Amanda's boy
Oh boy

Verse 3:

Why can't I leave him alone
I don't know why
I don't know why
She won't leave me alone
I don't know why
I don't know why
I can't win, tell me
Why I can't win, tell me
Why, oh why, oh why
Amanda plays so...

Chorus:

Oh what Amanda's boy what he
do to me
Why won't Amanda's boy what he
do to her do to me
Oh why Amanda's boy what he
do to me
You know I need a man
Amanda
Amanda's boy
You know I need a man
Amanda
A man
Amanda's boy
Oh boy
