(August Darnell)

Endicott's up by five o'clock, Endicott's givin' all he got
Endicott's job is six to nine but Endicott's home by nine o'five
Endicott helps cook the steak, Endicott helps put the plates
Endicott puts the kids to bed, Endicott reads a book to them

(why can't you be like Endicott ?)

Endicott loves Tribena so, Endicott puts her on a pedestal
Endicott's wish is her command but Endicott don't make no demands
Endicott's always back in time, Endicott's not the cheating kind
Endicott's full of compliment, Endicott's such a gentleman

(why can't you be like Endicott ?)

Cause I'm free, free of made-to-order liabilities
Thank God I'm free cos it's hard enough for me
To take care of me oh-oh

Endicott's carrying a heavy load, Endicott never really ever moans
Endicott's not a wealthy guy but Endicott pays the bill on time
Endicott's got ideas and plans, Endicott's what you call a real man
Endicott always will provide 'cause Endicott is the family type

(why can't you be like Endicott ?)

Cause I'm free, freer than a pirate on a frigate out at sea
Thank God I'm free driftin' all around just like a tumbleweed, oh-oh

Maybe I need someone, someone who isn't undone
Maybe an older woman will tolerate me
Maybe that certain womeone older and wiser woman
Maybe the perfect someone to satisfy me

Endicott keeps his body clean, Endicott don't use nicotine
Endicott don't drink alcohol, Endicott uses no drugs at all
Endicott don't eat any sweet, Endicott don't eat pig feet
Endicott's frame is mighty strong, Endicott makes love hard and strong

(why can't you be like Endicott ?)

Endicott loves Tribena so, Endicott walks her to the sto'
Endicott likes to hold her hand, Endicott's proud to be her man
Endicott stands for decency, Endicott means formality
Endicott's the epitome, Endicott stands for quality

Endicott, Endicott, Endicott, Endicott, our love will be.
