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

ABBA's Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson conceived "Dancing Queen" as a dance song with the working title "Boogaloo," drawing inspiration from the 1974 George McCrae disco hit "Rock Your Baby." Their manager Stig Anderson came up with the title "Dancing Queen."
"(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding" was written by Nick Lowe in 1974. The original version with his group Brinsley Schwarz was kind of somber, but Elvis Costello made it a classic with his 1978 uptempo take.
