Subject: Lyr Add: MAN SMART -- WOMAN SMARTER (H Belafonte)
How about Harry Belafonte's version of the calypso song,


Chorus: Not me, but the people they say
That the men are leading the women astray,
But I say, that the women of today
Smarter than the man in every way.

Well, ever since the world began,
Women are always cheating man
If you listen to my tale attentively,
I tell you how she is smarter than me. (Chorus)

Well, you meet a gel at a pretty dance
Thinking that you maybe stand a chance
Take her home, thinking she's alone
Open the door.... You find her husband home. (Chorus)

I was keeping a girl independently
She was making baby for me
When the baby's born, and I went to see
Eyes were blue ... It was not by me! (Chorus)
