Andy Grammer Swag

I don’t know much about Andy Grammer other than that he’s been streaming on my Ron Pope Pandora station a lot lately, and that he was raised right by his mama. I just heard his song “Ladies” (released in 2011) last week (I know) and I can’t get enough.  It reminds me of a more fun, pop, “blue-eyed soul” version of John Legend’s “You & I“.

He wrote it for his mom after she passed away and it’s all about how to treat women. “I never would have written this song if it weren’t for her…she was really intense about how I treated women.”

It’s a beautiful song that everyone, men especially, should listen to. The lyrics are below the video; enjoy!

My mother told me,
She said Andy,
You’ll be a man soon,
So understand me.
Most of this world sees,
Women like candy.
You’ll be a man who,
Will be standing for me.

[ Hook]
My sisters, my daughters and wives,
Girls who are learning how to shine their light.
Dedicate some of your life,
Stand for them all.
Sing it now, me
My sisters, my daughters, and wives,
Girls who are learning how to shine their light.
Dedicate some of your life
You will stand for them all,

[Chorus]
Sing it now
Ladies,
You are beautiful, you are beautiful,
You don’t even have to try.
Oh ladies,
You are beautiful, you are beautiful,
More than you could realize.

My mother told me,
She said Andy,
I know this all may,
Seem demanding.
But I’ll be leaving,
And we’ll be handing,
All of my love to you,
You will be standing for me,

I’m not sure if I’m the best one
To carry this torch,
I’m a mess and my nose is sore
Fallin on my face tryin to
Break the norm,
But I still conform.
And I know you see,
The mistakes I make and wait
Patiently, for me to replace them
And I can’t quite seem,
To be the perfect man,
That you needed me to be,
I need you to believe that
I’ll be standing here,
Got my sword, I got my shield.
And you keep ringing in my ear,
Oh lord,
Talking bout me.
