Girl, I've known you very well I've seen you growin' ev'ry day I never really looked before But now you take my breath away Suddenly you're in my life Part of everything I do You got me working day and night Just tryin' to keep a hold on you
Here in your arms I found my paradise My only chance for happiness And if I lose you now, I think I would die Oh, say you'll always be my baby We can make it shine We can take forever just a minute at a time
More that a woman More that a woman to me baby More than a woman More than a woman to me More than a woman
There are stories old and true Of people so in love like you and me And I can see myself, let history repeat itself Reflecting how I feel for you Thinkin' 'bout those people then I know that in a thousand years I'd fall in love with you again
This is the only way that we should fly This is the only way to go And if I lose your love, I know I would die Oh, say you'll always be my baby We can make it shine We can take forever just a minute at a time
More that a woman (more than a woman) More that a woman to me baby More than a woman (more than a woman) More than a woman to me More than a woman
More that a woman (more than a woman) More that a woman to me baby More than a woman (more than a woman) More than a woman to me (every day of my life) More than a woman (oh baby) More than a woman to me (you are, you are, you are) More that a woman More than a woman to me (she treats me good like a lover should) More than a woman (yeah) More than a woman to me (yeah) More than a woman

Jay, ditto. He and the Bros Gibb are underrated as writer/producers, very. But Barry especially, since he seems to be the primary.
Linda from CtThe Tavares version is my favorite. The guys singing sound way cuter and cooler than the Bee Gees (sorry Bee Gees).
Jim from Roseville, CaI am friends with Chubby Tavares and know this for a FACT...."More Than A Woman" was written for Tavares by Barry Gibb of The Bee Gees. The Brothers Gibb had their own single too, but only released it in minor markets like Italy. They left larger markets like the UK and USA for the Tavares version. Go to about 8:30 in the below Youtube...hear it in Chubby's own words:
The song was arranged by the great Freddie Perren for Tavares and led to them being known as a Disco Group.

Markantney from BiloxeFeb 2018, Love both versions, though very different in delivery. The Bee Gees get a slight nod for I prefer their Arrangements. If you played the Bee Gees Version as an Instrumental, I'd probably play it as much as the vocal version.
Don from Sevierville, TnFunny, while it was Tavares' version of this song that came out as a single, it's been the Bee Gees' version I hear on the radio more often, even today.
Jennifer Harris from Grand Blanc, MiI think that Tavares did a great job covering the Bee Gees' More Than a Woman.
David from Youngstown, OhA nice job by Tavares on this song. But the Bee Gees rendition is one of the greatest songs ever made. It's the only Bee Gees song on the Fever soundtrack that didn't make the Top 40 (they never released it as a single). The Bee Gees version is more lush with violins, and a subtle yet fantastic use of keyboards. The Tavares version is much more of a disco song with the more uptempo beat and vocal layering. As for "bald headed woman," my mother had a friend who also thought that's what is being sung, particularly on the Bee Gees' version.
Marty from San Francisco, CaSome joker I knew was convinced that the Bee Gees version was singing, "Bald headed woman; bald headed woman to meeee!" Smoked dope, too.
Jay from Syracuse, NyI'm no longer ashamed of saying that Barry Gibb is a genuinely gifted writer and producer. His uncanny ear for layering a record, esp. finding ways of using strings up-tempo, or "against" the bass line--amazing. I mean, there are limits to where his stuff is going to take you--but I can't deny that beautifully made and electric records like Jive Talkin' and this one will be around for a while--in ways I wouldn't have imagined back when "disco" was a knee-jerk pejorative for rock snobs like me. I dare say, I almost feel the reverse today.
Angus Young created the distinctive opening guitar part for "Thuderstruck" by playing with all the strings taped up, except the B. He learned the studio trick from his older brother George Young, who was the rhythm guitarist for The Easybeats.
