Ah listen everybody, specially you girls
Is it right to be left alone
When the one you love is never home
I love too hard my friends sometimes say
But I believe I believe that a woman should be loved that way
But it hurts me so inside to see you treat me so unkind
Somebody somewhere tell her it's unfair

Can I get a witness
Can I get a witness
Can I get a witness
Somebody

Is it right to be treated so bad
When you give her everything you had
Keep on talking in my sleep
'cause I haven't seen my baby all week
Now you kids you agree that
This ain't the way love's supposed to be
Let me hear you, let me hear you say yeah, yeah, yeah

Up early in the morning with her on my mind
Took to find it out all night I been cryin'
But I believe a woman's a man's best friend
I'm gonna stick by her till the very end
Well she causes so much misery
That I forgot how love's supposed to be
Somebody somewhere tell her it ain't fair

Can I get a witness
Can I get a witness
I want a witness
Witness, witness
Witness, witness

Everybody knows especially you girls
That a love can be sad
But I have a love that's twice as bad
Now all you chicks agree
That this ain't the way it's supposed to be
Let me hear you, let me hear you say yeah, yeah

I want a witness
I want a witness
I want a witness
I want a witness
Just a little bit louder
Louder yeah, oh yeah
