A Man Needs A Maid

Its a song by Neil Young, and in his latest CD Live in Marsey Side. In the CD its the 7th track and it leads straight into a Heart of Gold, gives me goose bumps to listen to it.
Y that work with me asked me what do I think it means - A man needs a maid? In my opinion its about being so lonely, not being able to communicate, that different functions that a partner or close friends can answer, are not answered, and then you need a maid - to pay for food, company with no attachments - to be left alone by the end of day, as its a form of life you can handle.
Y looked at me, ans asked me if I know that because of my degree.

The degree in the University of life should have been my answer.

Go and buy the CD. Now.

"A Man Needs A Maid"

My life is changing
in so many ways
I don't know who
to trust anymore
There's a shadow running
thru my days
Like a beggar going
from door to door.

I was thinking that
maybe I'd get a maid
Find a place nearby
for her to stay.
Just someone
to keep my house clean,
Fix my meals and go away.

A maid. A man needs a maid.
A maid.

It's hard to make that change
When life and love
turns strange.
And old.

To give a love,
you gotta live a love.
To live a love,
you gotta be "part of"
When will I see you again?

A while ago somewhere
I don't know when
I was watching
a movie with a friend.
I fell in love with the actress.
She was playing a part
that I could understand.

A maid. A man needs a maid.
A maid.

When will I see you again?
