When a man loves a woman
He'll trade the world
If she's bad he can't see it
Turn his back on his best friend

Spend his very last dime
He'd give up all his comfort
If she said that's the way it ought to be
Well, this man loves a woman
Trying to hold on to your precious love

Down deep in his soul
If she plays him for a fool
Loving eyes can't ever see
When a man loves a woman
He can never own some other girl
I know exactly how he feels
