  • Whoa, I need a man to love me
    Don't you understand me, baby?
    Why, I need a man to love
    I gotta find him, I gotta have him like the air I breathe
    One lovin' man to understand can't be too much to need

    You know it
    Can't be now
    Oh no
    Can't be now
    Oh no
    Can't be now
    Oh no
    Can't be now
    Oh no
    Can't be now
    Oh no
    Can't be this loneliness
    Baby, surrounding me

    No, no, know it just can't be
    No it just can't be
    There's got to be some kind of answer
    No it just can't be
    And everywhere I look, there's none around
    No it just can't be
    Whoa, it can't be
    No it just can't be, oh no!
    Whoa, hear me now

    Whoa, won't you let me hold you ?
    Honey, just close your eyes
    Whoa, won't you let me hold you, dear ?
    I want to just put my arms around ya, like the circles going 'round the sun
    Let me hold you daddy, at least until the morning comes

    Because it
    Can't be now
    Oh no
    Can't be now
    Oh no
    Can't be now
    Oh no
    Can't be now
    Oh no
    Can't be now
    Oh no
    Can't be this loneliness
    Baby, surrounding me
    No, no, no it just can't be
    No it just can't be
    Oh, baby, baby, baby, baby, just can't be
    No, no, no
    No it just can't be

    And why can't anyone ever tell me, now ?
    No it just can't be
    I wake up one morning, I realize
    No it just can't be
    Whoa, it can't be
    No it just can't be
    Now go!

    Whoa, I need a man to love me
    Oh, maybe you can help me, please
    Why, I need a man to love
    But I believe that someday and somehow it's bound to come along
    Because when all my dreams and all my plans just cannot turn out wrong

    You know it
    Can't be now Oh no
    Can't be now Oh no
    Can't be now Oh no
    Can't be now Oh no
    Can't be now Oh no
    Can't be just loneliness
    Baby, surrounding me

    No, no, no, it just can't be
    No it just can't be
    Oh, baby, baby, baby, baby, it just can't be
    No it just can't be
    And who could be foolin' me ?
    No it just can't be
    I've got all this happiness
    No it just can't be
    Come, come, come on, come on, come on, and help me now
    No it just can't be
    Please, can't you hear my cry ?
    No it just can't be
    Whoa, help Writer/s: Janis Joplin, Sam Andrew
