I've been trying,
Lord knows that I've been trying
To understand why
Can't I be your only man

Now you said you loved me
So sincerely
That I believed that you loved me
Yet I can't understand why
Can't I be your only man

Day after day you
Ya Treat me any old way
I wanna go but my heart says no
Acting so strange
But my love still remains
So keep on trying boy
She's gonna change

[Instrumental]

Day after day you
Ya Treat me any old way
I wanna go but my heart says no
Acting so strange
Yet my love still remains
It says keep on trying boy
She's gonna change

Now, I've been trying,
Lord knows how I've been trying
But I can't understand why
Can't I be your only man

I just keep on trying
Oooh...ohoooh...
Just keep on trying...
Oooh...ohoooh...
Ya gotta keep on trying
Oooh...ohoooh...
