When you're a woman, things don't happen
Just the way you plan
I want you to know
That I lost control 
With a great big good-looking man
I knew he had it
I couldn't stand it
That's why I gave in
To his sweet lovin ways 
And I'm happy to say 
I'd do it all over again

He took me for a ride by the cool river side
I never knew the feeling before
He loved me up tight by the river moonlight
Who could ask for anything more
I could have been a fool but I played it cool
And I stayed close by his side
Now I'm gonna shout it
'Cause there's no doubt about it
He really took me for a ride

He was a man with a hundred hands
Believe me he was out of sight
The things he done and said kept runnin' through my head
I knew he'd be my lover all night

He took me for a ride by the cool river side
I never knew the feeling before
He loved me up tight by the river moonlight
Who could want for anything more
I could have been a fool but I played it cool
And I stayed close by his side
Now I'm gonna shout it
'Cause there's no doubt about it
He really took me for a ride

He was a man with a hundred hands
Believe me he was out of sight
The things he done and said kept runnin' through my head
I knew he'd be my lover all right

Now don't get me wrong, big daddy's goin' strong
And I'm still satisfied
'Cause every night he comes home right where he belongs
And he still takes me for a ride
'Cause every night he comes home right where he belongs
And he still takes me for a ride
