    So you're looking for a good man, yeah I understand

    I see your full lips; full hips, sexy legs and I admire the way you walk to.
    Yeah that's right you don't know me, but I know you.

    I love your talk, smile, profile, and the way you dress with style.
    And how you say your ready to walk down that isle,
    and if you find a good man you'll go that extra mile.

    I respect what you have accomplished, and how you have gotten
    down to maintain your crown.

    Yes baby, I do know you; I just see an feel a little deeper than you think I do.

    Just think hard! you know me, I'm the good brotha you say is ether gay taken, or in jail.
    While you an the sista's are somewhere else waiting to exhale.

    C'mon you know me, you just don't see me,
    I'm the good brotha who smiled at you the other day at the newsstand.
    And today your still wondering why you don't have a man.

    As I approach you, you gave that attitude,
    like your sitting in a vault and don't want to let me inside.
    But all I wanted was to converse with my sista
    and see what's on your mind.

    So you're looking for a good man, yeah I understand

    But even if I wanted in, you wouldn't even open the door.
    Me- "knock Knock"..
    You- "Who is it"
    Me- "Good Brotha"
    You- "Go away, there is no such thing any more"

    You think I'm intimidated by your sexiness, beauty and confidence,
    which enables you to be strong.
    But it was I, the good brotha who knew you had
    those things all along.

    Baby I wouldn't mind giving into your demands, within reason, from time to time.
    But your demands seem to try to belittle my mind.

    I smile an have always greeted you with a hello on the train,
    bus or even when you're walking down the street.
    Just say hello back because I'm that good brotha
    you always say you've wanted to meet.

    I've seen you at the grocery store, the mall and even the coffee shop..
    Just speak!, I won't bite !, Just speak!.. It's okay.
    But no, you just walked by as if I was in your way.

    Guess what? you have just walked by me, someone who's able to love you,
    and nurture your neglected heart, like a good brotha is suppose to do

    So you're looking for a good man, yeah I understand

    Serious are you really wondering why you don't have a man, I think you know,
    because if you would open your eyes you would see me,
    then couldn't hold me accountable for another brotha's destiny.

    I just want to see the side you’ve been hiding from the world to see,
    I want you to open your eyes and see all the good brotha’s out there, that is just like me

    "Hello I'm good brotha" I'm proud to meet you.

    Please to meet you, Mr. Michael...

    Some women have to recognize the
    bad bruthas 4 what they are
    before they can appreciate what the
    good bruthas have to offer...
    personally, I love the good bruthas.....nice flow!
