Take me to heart and I'll always love you
And nobody can make me do wrong
Take me for granted, leaving love unshown
Makes will power weak and temptation strong

A woman's only human
You should understand
She's not just a play thing
She's flesh and blood just like her man

If you want a do right
All day woman
You gotta be a do right
All night man

They say that it's a man's world
But you can't prove that by me
And as long as we're together baby
Show some respect for me

If you want a do right
All day woman
You gotta be a do right
All night man

A woman's only human
This you should understand
She's not just a plaything
She's flesh and blood
Just like her man

If you want a do right
All day woman
You gotta be a do right
All night man
You gotta be a do right
All night man

Thanks to Julie for the correction
