Lyrics

He's A Keeper by Ileana Burdine

When I was a little girl
my mama would counsel me
on what you want in a good man
like the one that she chose to marry
one who loves you with all his heart
a man who's true to his every word
one who respects you and all you do
and you can honor him in return
he doesn't have to be a Cyrano
but he has a way of lettin' you know
that you're the girl of his dreams

He's a keeper
he's genuine
I'm gonna make that man all mine
He's a keeper
He's bonafide
I'm gonna love him for the rest of my life
not too clever, not too full of grace
but his love puts a smile on my face
I'd find it hard to ever replace
That man, that man, that man
He's a keeper

when I was out in the world
looking for someone for me
I met a man who fit the bill
He was everything my love should be
he's not too clear on current events
when we go dancing I wear thick shoes
but it's the little things that he does for me
that tell me that his love is true
he says I'm gorgeous at the crack of dawn
before I've even put my makeup on
says I'm the first thing on his mind

He's a keeper
he's genuine
I'm gonna make that man all mine
He's a keeper
He's bonafide
I'm gonna love him for the rest of my life
not too clever, not too full of grace
but his love puts a smile on my face
I'd find it hard to ever replace
That man, that man, that man
He's a keeper

He may not be a Cyrano
but he has a way of lettin' me know
I'm the girl of his dreams

He's a keeper
he's genuine
I'm gonna make that man all mine
He's a keeper
He's bonafide
I'm gonna love him for the rest of my life
not too clever, not too full of grace
but his love puts a smile on my face
I'd find it hard to ever replace
That man, that man, that man
He's a keeper
