Lyrics

(Source: as heard)

Take me to heart and I’ll always love you,
And nobody can make me do wrong.
But take me for granted, leaving love unshown
Makes willpower weak and temptation strong.
A woman’s only human;
This you should understand--G
She’s not just a plaything;
She's flesh and blood needs love , just like her man.
If you want a do-right (do-right, do-right) , all-day (do-right, do-right) woman (woman),
You’ve got to be a do-right (do-right, do-right) , all-night (do-right, do-right) man (man) .
Yeah, yeah, they say that it’s a man’s world,
Well, you can't prove that by me.
And as long as we’re together, baby,
Show some respect for me.
If you want a do-right (do-right, do-right), all-day (do-right, do-right) woman (woman),
You’ve got to be a do-right (do-right, do-right), all-night (do-right, do-right) 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 a do-right (do-right, do-right) , all-day (do-right, do-right) woman (woman) ,
You’ve got to be a do-right (why don't ya, why don't ya) , all-night (why don't ya, why don't ya) man (man) ,
You’ve got to be a do-right, all-night man.
You’ve got to be a do-right, all-night man .
