"We Gotta Get You a Woman" - Todd Rundgren

Ball State University
Muncie, Indiana
Freshman Year
1969-1970
Davidson Hall
9th Floor

Or was it my Sophomore Year
1970-1971
Davidson Hall
7th Floor

We would go to "The Dug Out."
the place to get hamburgers, fries, Cokes, etc
that was built beneath the dorm complex.

Put some coins in the "juke box"
and I'd play this.

Sure got me through a lot of dark times.

Now that I think of it,
I'll bet it was my Freshman year . . . 
I was really missing someone
who was still back in high school.

When I hear those first 3 notes, I always smile.

 


"We Gotta Get You A Woman"

Leroy, boy, is that you?
I thought your post-hangin' days were through
Sunk-in eyes and full of sighs
Tell no lies
You get wise
I tell you now, we're gonna pull you through
There's only one thing left that we can do

We gotta get you a woman
It's like nothin' else to make you feel sure you're alive
We gotta get you a woman
We better get walkin', we're wastin' time talkin' now

Leroy, boy, you're my friend
You say how and I'll say when
Come and meet me down the street
Take a seat
It's my treat
You may not ever get this chance again
That empty feeling's just about to end

We gotta get you a woman
It's like nothin' else to make you feel sure you're alive
We gotta get you a woman
We better get walkin', we're wastin' time talkin' now

Talkin' 'bout life and what it means to you
It don't mean nothin' if it don't run through
I got one thing to say, you know it's true
You got to find some time to get this thing together, 'cause

We gotta get you a woman
It's like nothin' else to make you feel sure you're alive
We gotta get you a woman
We better get walkin', we're wastin' time talkin' now

Talkin' 'bout things about that special one
They may be stupid, but they sure are fun
I'll give it to you while we're on the run
Because we ain't got time to get this thing together, 'cause
We got to get together with a woman who has been around
One who knows better than to let you down
Let's hope there's still one left in this whole town
And that she'll take some time to get this thing together, 'cause
Get this thing together, 'cause
Get this thing together, 'cause

We gotta get you a woman
We gotta get you a woman
We gotta get you a woman
And when we're through with you
We'll get me one too
