All Woman

Album: Real Love (1991)
Charted: 20 56
  • He's home again from another day
    She smiles at him as he walks through the door
    She wonders if it will be okay
    It's hard for her when he doesn't respond

    He says Babe, you look a mess
    You look dowdy in that dress
    It's just not like it used to be
    Then she says

    I may not be a lady
    But I'm all woman
    From Monday to Sunday I work harder than you know
    I'm no classy lady
    But I'm all woman
    And this woman needs a little love
    To make her strong
    You're not the only one

    She stands and lets the tears flow
    Tears that she's been holding back so long
    She wonders where did all the loving go
    The love they used to share when they were strong

    She says yes I look a mess
    But I don't love any less
    I thought you always thought of me
    To always be impressed


    He holds her and hangs his head in shame
    He doesn't see her like he used to do
    He's too wrapped up in working for his pay
    He hasn't seen the pain he's put her through

    Attention that he paid
    Just vanished in the haze
    He remembers how it used to be
    When he used to say

    You'll always be a lady
    'Cause you're all woman
    From Monday to Sunday I love you
    Much more than you know
    You're a classy lady
    'Cause you're all woman
    This woman needs a loving man to keep her warm

    You're the only one
    You're a classy lady
    'Cause you're all woman

    So sweet the love that used to be
    So sweet the love that used to be
