Lyrics Edit


If you ever got in trouble I would be there on the double Just to bail you out If there's anything you lack You know I've always got your back That's what it's all about

[Chorus 1: BEA] Think of me as your sidekick Helping you whenever I can I'm more than just a woman, baby When the pressure's coming, baby Let me be your right-hand man

[Spoken: NICK (BEA)] But you're not a man, I'm the man (Ugh! You're not hearing me)

[Verse 2: BEA (Spoken: NICK)] If you're ever in a pickle You can call for me and quick'll Be how fast I run (But I'm not in a pickle!) You and me should be a team For any dream or any scheme That's how it should be done

[Chorus 2: BEA] Sure, I could stay in the background Just smiling every now and again But just to be a pretty lady That would be a pity, baby Let me be your right-hand man

[Spoken: NIGEL (NICK)] You should listen to her, she's usually right (Eat your cabbage) Ok

[Bridge: BEA] I am stronger than you think Don't be thinking I ain't tough I am where you oughta go When the going's getting rough So when things are going badly

[Spoken: NICK (BEA) (NIGEL)] But they're not (They kinda are) (No, things are fine) But if they weren't (But it's ok) Love? (What?) Oh! (What?) Quit trying to protect me (Can we change the subject, please?) Not until I know that

[Verse 3: BEA (Spoken: NICK)] If you're ever in a fix And it's a fix you need to nix Then I'm your go-to guy (You're not a guy) Don't be so literal! And don't forget I'm not a shrinking violet A solid rock am I

[Chorus 3: BEA] So don't be thinking I'll crumble When the you-know-what hits the fan There's no problem that's too big When you're married, that's the gig So don't be a sexist pig

[Outro: BEA] Is it asking too much of you It's only cause I love you Let me be your right In fact, I'll show you that I'm right

[Spoken: NICK (BEA)] What are you doing now? (I'm gonna get you boys some meat!)

[Outro (Cont.): BEA] Baby, I'm your right Don't put up a fight I can be your right Starting here tonight Let me be your right-hand man

Let me be your right-hand man
