Heavy Rotation – Soon As I Get Home by Babyface

Happy Friday!

This song was selected as my “Heavy Rotation” by coincidence. The other day I was listening to my iTunes library on album shuffle, and up pops Soon As I Get Home by Babyface.

It’s been awhile since I heard this song. Appearing on his 1989 release Tender Lover, the premise of the tune is simple – if the guy you’re dating isn’t treating you right, Babyface most definitely will.

He has no issue with paying rent, buying clothes, cooking a good meal and being a faithful lover. All a woman has do to is wait for him to get home from work!

The chorus:

“I give good love
I’ll buy your clothes
I’ll cook your dinner too
Soon as I get home from work
I’ll pay your rent
Your faithful lover
Soon as I get home, soon as I get home from work
Girl, I’ll treat you right
And I’ll never lie
For all that it’s worth
I give good love (good love, good love, good love, good love)”

Soon As I Get Home  is a refreshing reprieve from the “women are gold diggers” mantra that some men have adopted as of late. Here, you have a man willing to lay out the cash, cook and never do a woman wrong.

Not only that, he won’t even flirt! He’ll probably pay for dinner if you become tired of his home-cooked meals (but with a man like this, would you even dare complain?)

Second verse:

“It doesn’t make sense
That you should have a broken heart
If I were the only one
I’d never let you fall apart
You’re the kind of woman
That needs a man with lots of cash
With a stack of major credit cards
And with me you don’t have to ask.”

Does this man really exist?
