Lyrics

In this big bad world there's things I'd do
When she needs help, I come through
Sometimes she hands me a jar of Jif
And I feel good when I open it

She needs me
She needs me
And that's why I need her
She needs me
She needs me
It's us against the world

I'm pretty good with the TV remote
When I record her favorite shows
I know how to listen when she's upset
And I keep her warm when she goes to bed

She needs me
She needs me
And that's why I need her
She needs me
She needs me
It's us against the world

She's mine all mine
She's mine all mine
She likes it that way
Almost all of the time
She's mine all mine
She's mine all mine
Don't mess with my girl, no

She needs me
She needs me
And that's why I need her
She needs me
She needs me
It's us against the world

We all need a reason to live
So don't ever fall
For the freedom bit
Free as a bird
I flew down that road
Take it from me
It's a horror show

She needs me
She needs me
And that's why I need her
She needs me
She needs me
It's us against the world

She needs me
She needs me
She needs me
She needs me
She needs me
And that's why I need her
She needs me
