Connick, Jr., Harry - Every Man Should Know Lyrics

Not every man can build his dream house
Not every man has big words to say
Able men keep this world turnin
For the rest of us making our way

Not every man can write a love song
To sing to the one that he holds so true
There are things a man can try learning
There are things he should know how to do

Every man should know how to love her
Every man should know how to care
Every man should recognize what she’s saying with her eyes
And help with her burdens to bear

Not every man can be the hero
And ride to the sun when he is through
But it’s not the hero returning
At the end of the work day to you

Every man should know how to love her
Every man should know how to care
Every man should recognize what she’s saying with her eyes
And help with her burdens to bear

Sunsets make was for the evening sky
Nighttime makes room for the day
Treasure her love ‘til the day you die
And never give it away

Every man should know how to love her
Every man should know how to care
Every man should recognize what she’s saying with her eyes
And help with her burdens to bear

Oh every man should know how to care

  4. Iliana Guadalupe Villegas

    Para los que llegaron aquí sin querer, espero aprecien uno de los tantos talentos que los medios no promocionan ya que es un estilo jazz, gospel, sinfónico no apto para los ordinarios del hip hop o regetton.

  5. Sasha Sequea

    Im here for Amy

  6. Ana González

    What does it mean Michael?? We wanna know!! :33

  7. Ana González

    Tonka Apablaza

    Cris nose cuanto

    Nunca se sabra:( detras hay una conspirancion que queria asesinar a michael.. nose si haz visto el video de robert conors que habla sobre el tema eso aclare bastante, aunque es mas Balanceado para el lado que dicen que lo mataron pero hay demaciadas pistas que dicen que fingio su muerte por lo mismo, el miedo a la conspiracion, es todo tan raro😞

    Jose Marquez

    +Mr. Unico ya vi el video, concuerdo contigo

    Tonka Apablaza

    +Mr. Unico si, si lo e visto..... amaria ser una policia o de la fbi y averiguar a profundo todo esto

    Iliana Guadalupe Villegas

    Pues llegaste al rincón de unos de los grandes de la música jazz. Lástima que como siempre, el hip hop tiene a la mayoría de las poblaciones de cabeza.

  21. Biel2619

    His lying about being a native of New Orleans is one of the many easy facts to research about Harry 'Fraudster' Connick Jr.

  62. Michelle Thompson

    Beautiful! I know I am the BIGGEST HCJ EVER! I just melt ever time I hear or see this man. I heard his voice when I was 20, and I will be 46. What a true talent!

  63. CarolAnne1000

    Well, I like your reply very much! You hit on very important issues and if all thought the same way, our families would not be falling apart from adulterous affairs leading to divorce which devastates the children. People seem to leave marriages at the drop of a hat. Our society is so suffering b/c of this breakdown of family life but few who will admit to it. BTW, do you have any single brothers??? LOL

  64. TriniSingsdeBlues

    I've always loved Harry when I first heard him sing. I heard him sing this song on American Idol and my heart melted. I've been listening to it over and over ever since. Harry you know how to truly love a woman. Thanks for this song <3

  65. Crow Princess

    Boring. ew

  66. Kecia Hyde

    Awesome song...could not say it better than He did! YOU ROCK!

  67. Kate Fields

    Oh they do...

  68. abraxas

    TY. It's nice to see that you're aware things can be just as ugly on both sides of the gender equation. I'll admit, there are plenty of lowlife men who don't own up their responsibilities and lack of good values themselves. I'm not perfect by far, but I do my best when it comes to the basics (being honest, not cheating, keeping up with any financial or familial responsibilities, trying to be attentive and emotionally supportive). Other folks just want to have their cake & eat it too, I suppose.

  69. abraxas

    You mean WOMEN, as not many of them find any worth in traditional values today. Or they see relationships as disposable, think of marriage as an untenable bondage situation and find the idea of being relegated to homemaker as totally repugnant (god forbid they end up raising good children who become HONEST MEN). Speaking of which, there's plenty of us who've committed ourselves, our lives, to monogomy... only to get kicked in our asses, and left for Cosmo magazine's promises of greener pastures.

  70. SchweigerGunther

    Right :P Like men like this exist. Get real.

  71. Usei Telefone Público



  72. blondedbythelight703

    Most men today are either Douchebag Cheaters or Lying Schemers. The type with no backbone what so ever. They stand for absolutely nothing!

  73. CH Habs

    lol ta une vie mouvementer quand même ou sérieusement charger... tes un dieu pour fair de la musique

  74. CH Habs

    manque de punche

  75. CH Habs
