Subject: RE: Tune Req: 'I Want a Man' traditional (?) camp song
I wish I could remember all fo it but we use to sing it on the bus rides to Grand Assembly every summer but our included the following verses I know:

I wanna man...I wanna man...I wanna a mansion in the sky!
(can't remember the next line that paired with the previous)

I wanna pet...I wanna pet...I want a peticoat made of swirls!
I wanna neck...I wanna neck...I wanna necklace made of pearls!

(There was at least one other verse). The the chorus in between was done as...

And when the dam, dam, damage is done....
I'm gonna have my child, my childish fun...
Just a swinging on the outhouse door!

(And for the finally and in a different tune it goes into...) Just a swinging in the outhouse door....without my nightie....just a swingin on the outhouse door.
