"Want Ads"

(As recorded by Honey Cone)
GENERAL JOHNSON
BARNEY PERKINS
GREG PERRY

Wanted: young man single and free
Experience in love preferred
But will accept a young trainee, oh

I'm gonna put it in the want ads
I need a love that's true
Gonna put it in the want ads
My man and I are through.

At home I find myself lost and alone
My man's playing the field, the thrill is gone
He stays out all night, says he's with the boys
But lipstick on his collar, perfume on it too
Tells me he's been lying, tell you what I'm gonna do.

I'm gonna put it in the want ads
This girl's in misery
Gonna put it in the want ads, ha
Somebody rescue me.

I spend my nights alone crying bitter tears
Although I cry out loud, nobody really hears
And when I need him most, he's never by my side
He's either playing cards or drinking at the bar
He thinks that I'm a fool, I'm going to the evening news.

I'm gonna put it in the want ads
I need somebody new
Gonna put it in the want ads, ha
My man and I are through.

Extra! extra! read all about it, uh yeah
Wanted: young man single and free
Experience in love preferred
But will accept a young trainee, oh oh, oh oh.

Lipstick on his collar, perfume on it too
I'm going to the evening news
Gonna put it in the want ads
I need somebody new
Gonna put it in the want ads, ha
My man and I are through.

Gonna put it in the want ads, oo
This girl's in misery
Gonna put it in the want ads, please
Somebody rescue me
Gonna put it in the want ads.
