Take me to heart and I'll always love you
And nobody can make me do wrong
Take me for granted leaving love unshone
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 ya want to do right (do right, do right)
Holding (do right, do right) this woman (woman)
You've gotta be a do right (do right, do right)
All night man (do right, do right) (man)

Yeah, yeah 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 to do right (do right, do right)
Holding (do right, do right) this woman (woman)
You gotta be a do right (do right, do right)
All night man (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 to do right (do right, do right)
Holding (do right, do right) this woman (woman)
You gotta be a do right
All night man
You gotta be a do right
All night man
