The Lady (lyric)

W/m dennis wheeler © 1976

 

Can you hold her hand, Can you touch her heart,

Can you treat her like a lady?

If she asks you, And you want to,

Can you treat her like a lady?

 

Can you take a heart and break it in your hand,

Or dry a tear, from a love That you don’t understand?

 

Can you hold her hand, Can you touch her heart

Can you treat her like a lady?

Can you take a chance On your romance

And yet treat her like a lady?

 

When she looks at you And laughs with you

And giggles like a child,

Can you take a love, And just this once,

Keep a friendship mild?

 

Can you hold her hand, Can you touch her heart,

And treat her like a lady?

She deserves the best, For all the rest,

You have to treat her like a lady.

 

You can’t take her heart And maybe have her cry,

But if she asks you, What can you do,

If she asks to try?

 

Can you take her love, And give her some,

And yet treat her like a lady?

Will she understand, oh you hope she can,

And treat her like a lady.

 

Will she understand, For you hope she can,

And treat her like a lady.

Is it worth the time, And the pain, And the crying, Will she come undone?

Or maybe it’s a friendship love The lady passes on.

 

Can you hold her hand Can you touch her heart,

Can you treat her like a lady?

For she’s like a rose, That only grows,

When you treat her like a lady.

And you take a chance,

Though you maybe shed a tear,

For the lady laughs, Says take a chance,

There’s nothing here to fear.

 

And you take her hand, And you touch her heart, And you treat her like a lady,

And she answers you, When you ask her to,

For the lady is a lady.

Can you hold her hand Can you touch her heart,

Can you treat her like a lady?

 

If she asks youand you want to

Can you treat her like a lady?

Is it worth the time, And the pain, And the crying, Will she come undone?

For the lady laughs, Says take a chance,

 

There’s nothing here but love.

 

Can you hold her hand Can you touch her heart,

Can you treat her like a lady?

"THE LADY"

The Lady - Dennis Wheeler
00:00 / 00:00

Once in awhile in your life you are blessed to meet someone very special. The question is never about being friends, you are friends from the moment of eye contact. The question is can you keep the friendship mild? The catch is that this kind of friendship was never meant to be mild. It doesn't start that way, and does not stay that way. Much as with the concept of  "soul-mate", so too this manifestation of "friend-mate" usually does not remain ‘mild’ very long. If left to follow its natural course, friend-mate can easily escalate to soul-mate.

This song, "The Lady" is about that kind of very special relationship.  At its very outset the question is, “Can you Treat her like a lady?” When the friendship expands and the souls manifests themselves, ‘Can you treat her like a lady’ when the electricity magnifies and overwhelms the senses?

If you have had such a friend you will recognize this song in your life. 

The blessings of life, though they can come and go, or can be happy or sad, are always manifest in the special memories of the gifts we have been able to share with and about others.

Enjoy the music and as you listen, reflect on your own special "Lady"ddy".
