Woman's Gotta Have It

Album: Understanding (1972)
Charted: 60
  • Once upon a time a good friend of mine
    Told me to tell y'all what I say today
    Do the things that keep a smile on her face
    Say the words that make her feel better ev'ry day
    You bet you better keep on you Ps and Qs
    If you don't the woman you can easily lose
    Oh, I had a love, a true love and I lost it
    No one seems to understand about the pain that it cost me

    Woman's got to have it
    I believe that I should know
    She's got to know that she's that she's needed around
    When you kiss her
    You got to make her feel it everyday, boy
    She's got to know that she's not walking on shaky ground
    Think it over

    Don't take for granted the smile upon her face
    Check a little bit closer, you might find a tear trace
    Maybe the little girl never said a mumbling word
    But she's got to know that her voice is heard
    Oh, I had a love, it was a true love and I lost it
    Now I'm suffering all this pain that the true love cost me

    A woman's got to have it
    I believe
    She's got to know that she's that she's needed around
    When you kiss her
    You got to let her feel it everyday, boy
    She's got to know that she's not walking on shaky ground

    So if you've got a love
    And maybe you've got eyes to keep her
    You've got to give her what she wants when she wants it
    Where she wants it (all right)
    How she wants it
    And every doggone time she thinks she needs it

    Your woman needs it
    The same as mine
    A woman got to have it
    From time to time
