If I were your woman and you were my man,
you'd have no other woman, you'd be weak as a lamb.

If I were your woman, and you were my man. Um baby.
 
She tears you down darlin', says you're nothing at all.
But, I'll pick you up darling, when she lets you fall.
You're like a diamond but she treats you like glass.
Yet you beg her to love you, but, me you don't ask.
If I were your woman, If I were your woman.
If I were your woman, here's what I'd do,

If I were your woman, If I were your woman, 
If I were your woman, here's what I'd do.

If I were your woman, here's what I'd do.
Never, never stop loving you if
