“You should be stronger than me
you’ve been here 7 years longer than me
don’t you know you supposed to be the man
not pale in comparison to who you think I am

You always wanna talk it through – I don’t care!
I always have to comfort you when I’m there
but that’s what I need you to do – stroke my hair!
‘Cause I’ve forgotten all of young love’s joy
feel like a lady, and you my lady boy

You should be stronger than me
but instead you’re longer than frozen turkey
why’d you always put me in control?
All I need is for my man to live up to his role
always wanna talk it through – I’m ok
always have to comfort you every day
but that’s what I need you to do – are you gay?

‘Cause I’ve forgotten all of young love’s joy
feel like a lady, and you my lady boy

He said ‘the respect I made you earn –
thought you had so many lessons to learn’
I said ‘You don’t know what love is – get a grip!’ –
sounds as if you’re reading from some other tired script

I’m not gonna meet your mother anytime
I just wanna grip your body over mine
please tell me why you think that’s a crime

I’ve forgotten all of young love’s joy
feel like a lady, and you my lady boy

You should be stronger than me
you should be stronger than me
you should be stronger than me
you should be stronger than me”.

Citazioni.

Stronger Than Me è il singolo di debutto della cantante e cantautrice inglese Amy Winehouse, pubblicato nel 2003 dalla Island Records ed estratto dall’album Frank. Il brano tratta la relazione con un ragazzo che invece di prendersi cura della propria ragazza, assume un ruolo infantile da primadonna. La canzone ha raggiunto il 71º posto nella UK Singles Chart. Nel CD singolo è presente un inedito: What it Is. Il video musicale è improntato sul testo della canzone. Si apre con la Winehouse in un locale che si arrabbia con il ragazzo perché è ubriaco e non si cura di lei. La scena si sposta in auto, dove il ragazzo è ancora più visibilmente alterato. Quando i due scendono lui non si regge in piedi e lei lo lascia per strada, entrando in casa da sola”.

Stronger Than Me is a song by English singer and songwriter Amy Winehouse from her debut studio album Frank (2003). Written by Winehouse and Salaam Remi, “Stronger Than Me” was released in the United Kingdom as the lead single on 6 October 2003, it ended up as the lowest-charting single from Frank and of Winehouse’s career, peaking at number 71 on the UK Singles Chart. The song nevertheless won the Ivor Novello Award for Best Contemporary Song Musically and Lyrically in 2004. The single for “Stronger Than Me” features an exclusive B-side, “What It Is“. A rare live version of the song performed by Winehouse was featured in the documentary film biopic that’s based on the life & death of Winehouse, Amy (2015) and the original version was included on the film’s original soundtrack. It was said in the film that “Stronger Than Me” first sold over 800 copies a day after its initial release by Winehouse’s previous guitarist, Ian Burter.
A music video was produced to promote the single. The video features Winehouse entering a bar and finding her boyfriend drunk. The video follows the lyrics of the song as Winehouse degrades her boyfriend for his failure to be the stronger and more dominant partner. The video continues as Winehouse acts as the more dominant partner helping her boyfriend home. Winehouse is seen being fondled by her drunken boyfriend as they struggle to exit the bar, then seen looking on in disgust as he vomits in the car driving them home. As the video concludes, Winehouse is seen on a retro street set struggling to get her unconscious boyfriend into their home. Failing to do so, Winehouse gives up, leaving him semi-conscious on the street and going inside as the song ends”.
