Don't you know ...

That a man without a woman
Is like a ship without a sail
A boat without a rudder
Or a fish without a tail

And a man without a woman
Is like a wreck upon the sand
There's only one thing worse in the universe
That's a woman without a man

Now you can throw a silver dollar
Down on the ground
And it'll roll because it's round
A woman never knows
What a good man she's got
Until, he puts her down

So listen, my honey ... give a listen to me
I want you to understand
That if you don't wanna be like a silver dollar
You better be good to this man

You throw a silver dollar
Down upon that ground
And it'll roll because it's round
Yeah ... a woman never knows
What a good man she got
Until, he puts her down

So give a listen, my honey ... listen to me
I want you to understand
That if you don't wanna be like a silver dollar
You better be good to this man
I ... mean ...

If you don't wanna be like a silver dollar
You better be good to this man

One more time ...

That if you don't wanna be like a silver dollar
Woman ... better be good to this man ...
