Singalong! Hard-Headed Woman by Cat Stevens (Yusuf Islam)

I recently had a conversation with some lady friends about how disheartening the dating world can be for women who are further down the feminist/driven/intellectual side of the spectrum. They've been in it for a while, and I am just re-entering it, so it wasn't exactly encouraging. Then, the next morning, I heard this song and chose to take it as a message that everything would be okay.


HARD-HEADED WOMAN
by Cat Stevens (Yusuf Islam)

I'm looking for a hard headed woman
One who will take me for myself
And if I find my hard headed woman
I will need nobody else, no, no, no

I'm looking for a hard headed woman
One who will make me do my best
And if I find my hard headed woman
I know the rest of my life will be blessed
Yes, yes, yes

I know a lot of fancy dancers
People who can glide you on a floor
They move so smooth but have no answers, wo
When you ask them "What are you come here for?"
"I don't know" "Why?"

I know many fine feathered friends
But their friendliness depends on how you do
They know many sure fired ways
To find out the one who pays
And how you do

I'm looking for a hard headed woman
One who will make me feel so good
And if I find my hard headed woman
I know my life will be as it should
Yes, yes, yes

I'm looking for a hard headed woman
One who will make me do my best
And if I find my hard headed woman
