WHEN A MAN LOVES A WOMAN – (C. Lewis/A Wright)

When he held me in his arms
When he held me in his arms
He said baby, bay, bay
You’re theonly one for me

When a man loves a woman
Can’t keep his mind on nothin else
He’ll trade the world for the good thing
He found, Yeah if she’s bad he can’t see it
She can do no wrong
Turn his back on his best friend if he put her down

When a man loves a woman
Spend his very last dime
Tryin to hold on to what he needs
Give up all of his comforts
Go out and sleep out in the rain
Is she say, "Baby that is how it’s gonna be"

When a man loves a woman
Give up everything that he has
Try to hold on to her precious love cryin
"Baby, baby please don’t treat me bad"

When a man loves a woman
Down deep in his soul
She can bring him such misery
Yeah…if she’s playing him for a fool
He’s the last one to know, Lovin eyes don’t ever see

So this man says "do you love me?"
Will you give me everything the earth has
Try to hold on to my precious love cryin
"Baby, baby please don’t treat me bad"

When a man loves a woman
He gives her all, he will never hurt the lovely girl
What you say about me, you love me baby
And will ever cry, baby…fade
