  • You could buy me diamonds
    You could buy me pearls
    Take me on a cruise around the world
    Baby you know I'm worth it
    Dinner lit by candles
    Run my bubble bath
    Make love tenderly to last, to last
    'Cause baby you know I'm worth it

    Wanna please wanna keep wanna treat your woman right
    Not just dough but to show that you know she is worth your time
    You will lose if you chose to refuse to put her first
    She will if she can find a man who knows her worth

    'Cause a real man, knows a real woman when he sees her
    And a real woman knows a real man ain't afraid to please her
    And a real woman knows a real man always comes first
    And a real man just can't deny a woman's worth

    If you treat me fairly
    I'll give you all my goods
    Treat you like a real woman should
    Baby I know you're worth it
    If you never play me
    Promise not to bluff
    I'll hold you down when shit gets rough
    'Cause baby I know you're worth it

    She walks the mile makes you smile all the while being true
    Don't take for granted the passions that she has for you
    You will lose if you chose to refuse to put her first
    She will if she can find a man who knows her worth

    'Cause a real man, knows a real woman when he sees her
    And a real woman knows a real man ain't afraid to please her
    And a real woman knows a real man always comes first
    And a real man just can't deny a woman's worth

    No need to read between the lines spelled out for you (spelled out for you)
    Just hear this song 'cause you can't go wrong when you value (better value)
    A woman's (woman's)
    Woman's (woman's)
    Worth!

    'Cause a real man, knows a real woman when he sees her
    And a real woman knows a real man ain't afraid to please her
    And a real woman knows a real man always comes first (first baby)
    And a real man just can't deny a woman's worth

    'Cause a real man, knows a real woman when he sees her
    And a real woman knows a real man ain't afraid to please her
    And a real woman knows a real man always comes first (first baby)
    And a real man just can't deny a woman's worth

  • Marcus from Roseville, MnThis idea for this song was inspired by a Loreal commercial with their famous slogan "Because I'm Worth It" Alicia saw it while writing songs.
