When a man loves a woman
Can’t keep his mind on nothin’ else
He’d change the world
For the good thing he’s found

If she is bad, he can’t see it
She can do no wrong
Turnin’ his back on his best friend
If he put her down

When a man loves a woman
He spend his very last dime
Tryin’ to hold on
To what he needs

He’d give up all of his comforts
And he sleep out in the rain
If she said that’s the way
It ought to be

Well, this man loves you woman
I give you everything I have
Tryin’ to hold on to your hot blood love
Baby, please don’t treat me bad

When a man loves a woman
Deep down in his soul
Oh, she can bring him
Such misery

If she is playin’ him for a fool
He’s the last one to know
Oh, lovin’ eyes, lovin’ eyes
Can never see

I love, I love, I love, baby, baby, baby, woman
And I love you, baby, I love you, baby
From the bottom of my heart
Deep down in my soul, can’t you see?
