If she is bad, he can't see it, She can do no wrong, Turn his back on his best friend if he put her down. When a man loves a woman, He'll spend his very last dime Tryin' to hold on to what he needs. He'd give up all his comforts and sleep out in the rain, If she said that's the way it ought to be. Well, this man loves you, woman. I gave you everthing I have, Tryin' to hold on to your hot blood long. Baby, please don't treat me bad. When a man loves a woman, Down deep in his soul, She can bring him such misery. If she is playin' him for a fool, He's the last one to know. Lovin' eyes can never see. When a man loves a woman he can do no wrong, he can never hug some other girl. Yes, When a man loves a woman I know exactly how he feels, 'Cause baby, baby, you're my pearl. When a man loves a woman....
