about

Arriving in this "God-forsaken country," Vivian is approached by Jacques Jeanrue who thinks she'd be better off with his assistance.

lyrics

SONG: A WOMAN NEEDS A MAN (Tune: Allouette)

JACQUES
Chorus: A man he needs a woman, that's the way
it's always been ---
But not near as much as a woman needs a man!

He needs her cooking don’t you know,
But she needs him to make the dough!

Make the dough! (VIVIAN: Would you please go!)
Ohhhh---

Chorus

Like the river needs to run,
She needs a man to have some fun!
Have some fun! (Vivian: You're not the one!)
Make the dough (Vivian: Would you please go!)

Ohhhh---

Chorus

He needs her like the cow needs the grass,
She needs a man to pinch her ------!!
Derriere! (Vivian: YOU WOULDN'T DARE!)
Have some fun! (Vivian: You're not the one!)
Make the dough (Vivian: Would you please go!)
Ohhhh ---

Like the fishes need the sea,
You need a man --- so why not me?
Why not me? (Vivian: Why not just LEAVE!)
Derriere! (Vivian: YOU WOULDN'T DARE)
Have some fun! (Vivian: You're not the one!)
Make the dough (Vivian: Would you please go!)
Ohhhh ---

Chorus
