You don’t need him to call you all sorts of names                                 

You don’t need him to bring him anything he claims                          

You’re getting old but you’re still looking fine                                     

Look at your face, it hardly shows a line                                               

                                 

You don’t need him to shout for dinner at six                                       

You don’t need him just ‘cause there’s nothing he can’t fix                  

You’re so grown into him that you can’t see                                         

Your self destruction is destroying me              

                                     

It’s in vain when you try to make me understand

Why you put up with all that pain – I would never choose that man

 You don’t need him to despise all things you do                                   

 You don’t need him, he hardly says I love you too                                                   

You stay alive but how long will it last                           

His sullen moods will make you age so fast             

                              

It’s in vain when you try to make me understand

Why you put up with all that pain – I would never choose that man

 You don’t need him to scold you all through the night                          

You don’t need him to tell you that you’re not that bright                     

You’re much more worth than him  but you don’t know

Tell me why do you fear that he should ever go           

   

It’s in vain when you try to make me understand

Why you put up with all that pain – I would never choose that man

You don’t need him to let you down all the time                                  

You don’t need him to punish you each time you shine   

You’re so close to me and that’s why it hurts                                        

You will never take action with these words

It’s in vain when you try to make me understand

Why you put up with all that pain – I would never choose that man

It’s in vain when you try to make me understand

Why you put up with all that pain – I would never choose that man

I’s in vain when you try to make me understand

Why you put up with all this pain – I would never choose that man

It’s in vain, it’s in vain, it’s in vain – ’cause you don’t need him!      

It’s in vain, it’s in vain, it’s in vain

‘cause you don’t need him
