Maybe he's not much, just another man
Doing what he can
But what does she care
When a woman loves a man?

She'll just string along
All through thick and thin
Till his ship comes in
It's always that way

When a woman love a man
She'll be the first one to praise him
When he's goin' strong
The last one to blame him

When everything's wrong
It's such a one-sided game that they play
But women are funny that way
Tell her she's a fool

She'll say, "yes, I know"
But I love him so
And that's how it goes
When a woman loves a man

Tell her she's a fool
She'll say, "yes, I know"
But I love him so
And that's how if goes
