Well my baby loves to call me her "good time machine".
And she knows that I don't break down or ever run out of steam.
But, when things stay broke around the house, she says "This ain't no way to live."
I say "Baby, I ain't no handyman, a lover's what I is."...cause...

Ain't no good with wrenches, ain't no good with a drill,
I ain't no Timmy Toolman, I ain't no Bobby Vila,
Don't know how to weld, don't know how to solder,
If you want something fixed, call your brother or your father.

There's one room in the house and you know where,
I'm a master craftsman in home repair.
When it comes to the boudoir, I know all the tricks,
There ain't nothin' in there what your man can't fix.

Broken window in the kitchen, sink has got a leak.
Paper's pealing off the wall, the front door's got a squeak.
Basement's getting' flooded, there's hole in the roof,
I can't do nothing' 'bout 'em , if you wanna know the truth,


If you need your pipes cleaned, Baby, you know better,
But when your bed falls apart, I'll screw it back together.

I ain't got a tool box, I ain't got a truck.
If you got a flat tire, you're flat out of luck.
I can't lay bricks or build a wall with cinderblocks.
I ain't workin' in no quarry, but I'll make your bed rock.


When it comes to the boudoir, I know all the tricks,
Ain't nothin' in there what your man can't fix. (3 times)
