When he held me in his arms, when he held me in his arms and said, "Baby, baby, baby, you are the only one for me."
When a man loves a woman, can't keep his mind on nothing else. He'll trade the world for the good thing he found. Yeah, if she's 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, spend his very last dime tryin' to hold on to what he needs. Give up all his comforts, go out and sleep out in the rain, if she says, "Baby, that is how it's gonna be."
When a man loves a woman, give up everything that he has, tryin' to hold on to her precious love, cryin, "Baby, 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's playin' him for a fool he's the last one to know. Lovin' eyes don't ever see.
So, this man says he loves me, he loves me. He gives me everything, everything, everything that he has, tryin' to hold on to my precious love, cryin', "Baby, baby, baby, don't you, don't you treat me, treat me bad." Ohhhh, oh I need him.
Yeah, when a man loves a woman he can do her no wrong. He could never hold another girl. Why you tell me you love me, baby, and run out ah-ah-ah-on the sly? Baby, baby, this is a man's world. No, no. Oh, baby, change has got to come in this man's world.
