about

They say ‘write about what you know’…so let that be adequate warning to anyone getting emotionally involved with a songwriter! With the clarity of hindsight, I have invented a different (and hopefully, more empowering) outcome to a relationship from my past.

lyrics

Once I had a man
He was nothing but a country fool
Here’s a man, who thinks he can plough
So he gets himself a mule

He gets himself a mule who’ll work all day
From the dawn to the setting sun
And while he’s busy doing nothing
Business still gettin’ done

Now one day, I said – ‘Hey!’
I ain’t nothing but this man’s mule
And the way that I’m letting him do me
I ain’t nothing but a doggone fool

‘Cause a woman ain’t mule
A woman she ain’t a mule
And if you think that’s how you ought to treat me
Then I’m taking you back to school
‘Cause a woman ain’t a mule...

Now fool is struttin’ round talking big
About how he’s heading up
But running your mouth ain’t working
And the mule’s keeping it’s mouth shut...

If you’ve been living this same story, gal
Maybe it’s time to change the plan
You need some respect, woman
Don’t need a fool – you need a man

‘Cause a woman ain’t a mule
A woman she ain’t a mule
If you think that’s how you ought to treat me
I’m taking you back to school
‘Cause a woman ain’t a mule...
