chico Lyr/Chords Add: Man Is for the Woman Made (2) Lyr/Chords Add: MAN IS FOR THE WOMAN MADE 03 Sep 05



A         D      B             A             E7            A
Man, Man, Man is for the woman made, and the woman made for man,

       A               E             A                E
As the spur is for the jade, as the scabbard for the blade,
As for digging is the spade, as for liquor is the can,
   A/F# A/E E       D             A/C#          A    E7       A
So man, man, man is for the woman made, and the woman made for man.

As the scepter to be sway'd, as for nights the serenade,
As for pudding is the pan, and to cool us is the fan,
So man, man, man is for the woman made, and the woman made for man.

Be she widow, wife, or maid, be she wanton, be she stayed,
Be she well or ill array'd, whore, bawd or harridan,
Yet man, man, man is for the woman made, and the woman made for man.




[Henry Purcell, 'Deliciae Musicae' 1696.]
