Lyrics

Man if you run down your shadow now
You can never catch it
Man if you run down your shadow now
You can never catch it

I said a woman is like a shadow
And man like an arrow
A woman is like a shadow
And man like an arrow

So never let a woman know how much you love
'Cause there won't be no peace in your life
Man I say
Never let a woman know how much you care
'Cause they will do things to hurt you
And it's no joke about it

I say to do what you can for them
But not too much
'Cause they will hurt you
Give what you can for them
But don't give much
'Cause they will hurt you

Listen when I say to you
And no joke about it
Easy come, easy go

If you run, run down your shadow
You can never catch it
If you run, run down your shadow
You can never catch it

So never let a woman know how much you love
'Cause there won't be no peace in your life
Man I say
Never let a woman know how much you care
'Cause they will do things to hurt you
And it's no joke about it

I say to do what you can for them
But not too much
'Cause they will hurt you
Give what you can for them
But don't give much
'Cause they will hurt you

'Cause woman is like a shadow
And man like an arrow
A woman is like a shadow
And man like an arrow

Woman! (Woman is like a shadow)
You're my shadow (man is like an arrow)
Listen when I say to you (woman is like a shadow)
And no joke about it (man is like an arrow)
You gotta understand (woman is like a shadow)
