Irreconcilable

Give me variations I can deal with
like being 4 hours cleaning when I can do it in one
or putting milk in the cup before the coffee
but don’t think you’ll never have to do any housework
because I’m a woman and you’re a man

Give me disagreements I can deal with
like who’s going to do the dishes
or whose meeting is most important and should grant access to the car tomorrow
but don’t think I’ll always have to defer to you
because I’m a woman and you’re a man

Give me misunderstandings I can deal with
like thinking you’re staying the night when you actually didn’t say so
or having made other plans because I thought you were invited to your friend’s party alone
but don’t think you need not care about anything I say
because I’m a woman and you’re a man

Give me flaws I can deal with
like not always answering if the answer is yes
or sometimes being quiet for hours for no apparent reason
but don’t think the way to handle me is manipulating me with a load of lies
because I’m a woman and you’re a man

Give me preferences I can deal with
like asking me to keep on my underwear
or taking me blindfolded on the floor
but don’t get put off by my being turned on
because I’m a woman and you’re a man

Give me problems I can deal with
like finding it hard to express your affection at times
or me needing a little more space than you’re comfortable with
but don’t think that you can ignore everything I say bothers me
because I’m a woman and you’re a man

Give me differences I can deal with
like not eating cheese
or being an agnostic when I’m an atheist
but don’t think that every “no” I say mean “yes”
because I’m a woman and you’re a man
