i’m finding it harder to be a gentleman lyrics – the white stripes

“i’m finding it harder to be a gentleman”

well i’m finding it harder
to be a gentleman every day
all the manner that i’ve been taught
have slowly died away
but if i held the door open for you
it would’nt make your day

you think that i care
about me and only me
when every single girl needs help
climbing up a tree
well i know it don’t take much
to satisfy me

maybe it’s whatever’s in my head
that’s distracting me
but if i could find emotion
to stimulate devotion
well then you’d see

well i’m finding it hard to say
that i need you twenty times a day
i feel comfortable so baby why
don’t you feel the same?
have a doctor come and visit us
and tell us which one is sane

i’d never said i wouldn’t
throw my jacket in the mud for you
but my father gave it to me so
maybe i should carry you
then you said
you almost dropped me
so then i did
and i got mud on my shoes
