Tina prefers her men sugar free, because She’s A Lady

I’m A Lady – a b-side to Tina Turner‘s 1991 single Love Thing. It was written by the same men responsible for her number 1 hit single What’s Love Got To Do With It: Terry Britten and Graham Lyle. They worked with Tina many times, and contributed songs for all of her studio albums, including such hits as What You Get Is What You See, We Don’t Need Another Hero and Something Beautiful Remains. I’m A Lady was only included on the UK and European versions of the Love Thing single (both vinyl and CD), including the UK picture-CD. Continue reading for scans of the Love Thing single, and to listen to the song while reading the lyrics.

I’m A Lady

You’re so crude
But you’re so nice
A boy like you could use some advice

You’re so cruel
But you’re so sweet
The way you look
When you’re lookin’ at me

Well, I’m keeping my thoughts to myself
And with what I’m thinkin’
You know it’s just as well

I’m a lady
You can’t go messin’ around with my heart
I’m a lady
Now you need love
‘Cause your sweet talk
Won’t do a thing for me
I prefer my man sugar free
I’m a lady

You’re standing too close to me
A sure sign of immaturity
Young man you shouldn’t be so bold
And exercise a little self-control

Uh, remember that we just met
You gotta learn to walk
Before you jump ahead

I’m a lady
You can’t go messin’ around with my heart
I’m a lady
And you’re attractive
But you don’t go saying things like that
You’re tryin’ to make me forget
That I’m a lady

You should have no regrets
Though you lost out on me
And when your friends ask you who you met
You can tell them that she
That she
Was a lady
I’m a lady

I’m keepin’ my thoughts to myself
And with what I’m thinkin’
Yeah well maybe it’s just as well

Yeah
I’m a lady
I’m a lady

No your sweet talk won’t do a thing for me
I’m a lady
I prefer my man sugar free
I’m a lady
Oh, yeah
