You can have him
I don't want him
He's not worth fighting for
 Besides there's plenty more where he came from
I don't want him
You can have him
I'm giving him the sack
And he can go right back where he came from
I could never make him happy 
He'd be better off with you
I'm afraid I never loved him
All I ever wanted to do was

Run my fingers thru his curly locks
Mend his underwear and darn his socks  Fetch his slippers and remove his shoes 
Wipe his glasses when he read the news
Rub his forehead with a gentle touch
 Mornings after when he's had too much
Kiss him gently when he cuddled near
Give him babies one for ev'ry year, so you see
I don't want him, you can have him
You can have him, I don't want him
For he's not the man for me

You can have him
I don't want him
He's not worth fighting for
 Besides there's plenty more where he came from
I don't want him
You can have him
He isn't my concern 
And he can just return where he came from
I would look a trifle silly
 Taking him away from you
That was never my intention 
All I ever wanted to do was

 Close the window while he soundly slept
Raid the icebox where the food is kept
Cook a breakfast that would please him most
Eggs and coffee and some buttered toast
Wake him gently with a breakfast tray
 After breakfast clear the things away
 Bring the papers and when they've been read
 Spend the balance of the day in bed, so you see
I don't want him, you can have him
You can have him, I don't want him
For he's not the man for me
