Nicholas Ray - My Guy

English
A A

My Guy

Nothing you could say
Can tear me away
From my guy
 
Nothing you can do
'Cause I'm stuck like glue
To my guy
 
I'm sticking to my guy
Lke a stamp to a letter
Like birds of a feather
We stick together
 
I can tell you from the start
I can't be torn apart
From my guy
 
Nothing you can do
Can make me untrue
To my guy
 
Nothing you can buy
Can make me tell a lie
To my guy
 
I gave my guy
My word of honor
To be faithful
And I'm gonna
 
You best be believing
I won't be deceiving
My guy
 
As a matter of opinion,
I think he's tops
My opinion is
He's the cream of the crop
 
As a matter of taste
To be exact
He's my ideal
As a matter of fact
 
He may not be a movie star
When it comes to being happy
We are
 
There's not a man today
Who can take me away
No muscle-bound man
Could ever take my hand
No handsome face
Could ever take the place
Of my guy
 
Thanks!

Perhaps you already know, but this is a very, very well known song from the 60s. This is the original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WT7nBGX5eU

If you don't know the original, it's worth noticing how different a tone he is striking. Of course, it's sweet that it's a man singing about a man.

Some notes on the language:
"Birds of a feather stick together" is a saying meaning people who are alike stand by one another.
"You best be believing" is a mode of speech, typical of Southern blacks, but not exclusive to them. It means "You better believe"
"Untrue" in this context means unfaithful
"He's tops" is slang from the 40s/50s meaning "he's the best"
"Cream of the crop" is a saying meaning the best
Muscle-bound means muscular
