  • Woman, do you love me?
    Woman, if you need me then
    Believe me I need you
    To be my woman

    Woman, do you love me?
    Woman, if you need me then
    Believe me I need you
    To be my woman

    And should you ask me how I'm doing?
    What shall I say? Things are okay
    But I know that they're not
    And I still may have lost you

    Woman, do you love me?
    Woman, if you need me then
    Believe me I need you
    To be my woman

    I guess you'll take your time and tell me
    When we're alone, love will come home
    I would give up my world
    If you'll say that my girl is my woman

    I've got plenty of time (I've got plenty of time)
    Time just to get through it
    Once again you'll be mine (once again you'll be mine)
    I still think we can do it
    And you know how much I love you

    Woman, don't forsake me
    Woman, if you take me then
    Believe me I'll take you
    To be my woman Writer/s: Paul McCartney

  • Traci from Worcester MaThis song was a favorite of mine my parents watched TV in the basement, and we slept upstairs and a radio playing in the living room this song would play and I would run to the radio and put my ear right on the radio and sing along. I am 58 and this song is still one of the best!!!!! I just heard it here and it still gives me chills. Thanks!! woman by peter & gordon

  • Louski from Nyc, VaSamuel: Perhaps you should check your facts. Paul McCartney wrote "Woman" for Peter&Gordon in 1966!!! That's more than a decade BEFORE Lennon wrote his "Woman" song for Double Fantasy. Your entire "theory," which is really just a rant, is wrong. And Lennon moved to New York because that's where everything was happening and because the UK was giving him and Yoko a tremendously hard time, attacking her looks and calling her names.
  • Samuel from Kilsyth, United KingdomPaul McCartney is a very SLY MAN,He was so JEALOUS that John Lennon`s song `WOMAN`, was taking all the limelight away FROM HIM,so he (supposedly wrote this song), which is Completely Different from Lennon`s,and as far as `BERNARD WEBB`, McCartney`s `PSEUDONYM NAME`is Concerned, `NO BEATLE`S FAN`I have Spoken to, has Ever Heard of Him,(Bernard Webb),I Have VOLUMES Of BEATLE MATERIAL, and I Have NEVER heard the name `BERNARD WEBB`, So I suggest you get the Book `THE REAL BEATLES`,or the `A to Z` one, and Read Them, and you will Read The `TRUTH` About PAUL McCARTNEY, and How `JOHN LENNON`was so DISGUSTED WITH HIM, He went to AMERICA. FACT.Thanks Samuel Kilsyth,UK
  • Zabadak from London, England"Woman" was also the title of one of John Lennon's last hits! Spooky!
