Cocker, Joe - Just Like A Woman Lyrics




Nobody feels any pain
Tonight as I stand here in the rain.
Everybody knows that baby's got new clothes,
But lately I see her ribbons and her bows
Have fallen from her curls.

She takes just like a woman.
She makes love just like a woman.
And then she aches just like a woman.
But she breaks just like a little girl.

Queen Mary, she's my friend.
Yes I believe I'll go see her again.
Nobody has to guess that baby can't be blessed
'Till she finally sees that she's like all the rest
With her fog, her amphetamines, and her pearls.

She takes just like a woman.
She makes love just like a woman.
And then she aches just like a woman.
But she breaks just like a little girl.

It raining at first, and I was dying there of thirst,
So I came in here.
And your long-time curse hurts, but what's worse
Is this pain in here.
I can't stay in here.
Ain't it clear...

That I just can't fit.
I believe it's time for us to quit.
But when we met again and are introduced as friends,
Please don't let on that you knew me when
I was hungry, and it was your world.

You take just like a woman.
You make love just like a woman.
And then you ache just like a woman.
But you break just like a little girl.

    Love this version - Joe sang with so much soul.  His take on I Shall Be Released from around this time is also pretty special.

  12. Khaled NEFLA

    Joe tu resteras à jamais dans nos cœurs, avec ta voix très particulier, nous avons toujours le sentiment d'être très proche de toi. Ton corps est loin, mais ta voix raisonne encore en nous.

  13. Maxim Vaga

    I love this version! Also check Nina Simone's and Jeff Buckley's! And just out of admiration for these artists, here is mine :)

  16. nunya biznetz

    Rivals the Richie Havens version. Great job.,

  17. larry mondello

    Fantastic memories

  18. Colin Hodgson

    Watched the doc about Joe on Sky Arts (april 22nd 2017) Reduced me to tears again especially his last concert in Germany. As he walked off you could tell he knew that was the end.

  19. Alanna T

    Best version I've heard. A man of soul.

  20. backintimeagain1

    I missed seeing Joe in Detroit in 1970 on his Mad Dogs and Englishmen tour.  Had tickets to the second show Saturday night  but the people from the first show wouldn't leave.  Cops got called.  One of the greatest and most unique voices.

    Assim Como Uma Mulher

    Nobody feels any pain
    Tonight as I stand inside the rain
    Ev'rybody knows
    That Baby's got new clothes
    But lately I see her ribbons and her bows
    Have fallen from her curls.
    She takes just like a woman, yes, she does
    She makes love just like a woman, yes, she does
    And she aches just like a woman
    But she breaks just like a little girl.

    Rainha Mary, ela é minha amiga
    Sim, acredito que irei vê-la novamente
    Ninguém teria que adivinhar
    Que minha menina não pode ser abençoada
    Até que finalmente ela veja que é como os outros
    Com sua confusão, sua anfetamina e suas pérolas.
    Ela te prende assim como uma mulher, sim
    Ela faz amor assim como uma mulher, sim, ela faz
    E ela geme assim como uma mulher
    Mas ela se magoa assim como uma garotinha.

    Estava chovendo pela primeira vez
    E eu estava morrendo de desejo
    Então eu vim aqui
    E sua maldição antiga machuca
    Mas o que é pior,
    É essa dor aqui
    Eu não posso ficar aqui
    Ainda não está claro?
    Não consigo me adaptar
    Sim, acredito que é hora de desistirmos
    Quando nos encontrarmos outra vez,
    Apresentados como amigos
    Por favor, não conte que você me conheceu quando
    Eu era pobre e aquele era o seu mundo.
    Ah, você engana assim como uma mulher, sim, você engana
    Você faz amor assim como uma mulher, sim, você faz
    Então você geme assim como uma mulher
    Mas você se magoa assim como uma garotinha.

  22. Tango Bango

    This wonderfully soulful voice was silenced just a few year's ago in 2014, but it will live on through songs like this moving cover of Dylan's classic!

  23. Guess Who

    Not taking away from Bob Dylan greates songwtiter who wrote and sang this song.
    But Joe does this one better,imo. Always loved his music since the early 70s.

    iliv4disc77

    Guess Who, I could not agree more. Dylan is a much better songwriter than he is a performer even though I do like his version of the song as well. Joe totally knocked this out of the ball park s he did other covers. RIP, Joe.

    Martín Novoa Brunet

    You should listen to Jeff Buckley's version, it's the best one in my opinion

    jamie wesson

    JEFF BUCKLEY YUK NOW HIS DAD TIM THATS MORE LIKE IT

  24. J Shelley

    Matthew Fisher (Procol Harum) on organ. Great performances all around.

    Rafael

    bj wilson (procol haraum) on drums

  25. elyse silk

    you sing to my soul

  26. Tom Canfield

    JOE YOU COUD SING ANYTHING YOUR THE MAN

  27. John Charles Heiser

    One of the greatest stage performers of his time.... saw him at the Midwest Rock Festival, about a month before Woodstock.... Blind Faith was there, Led Zepplin, Jeff Beck when Rod Stewart was in his band, Rich Havens, Buffy Ste. Marie, so many more.... because it was put together in less than a week, less than 100,000..... But also people who wanted to play couldn't break contracts.... Just to see his performance... song stretched to maybe 15 min. was worth the whole thing...

  28. Kelvin Robertson

    best cover ever

  29. stevies5

    Superb. Thanks for sharing.

  30. maria teresa cortell de borges

    El mejor cantante de soul...

    iliv4disc77

    I hear you, man. I am fighting back tears listening to this now that Joe is no longer with us.

  35. Michael Coleman

    just wow, huge joe fan. what a voice !!!

  36. Derek Beauchamp

    Beautiful song. A great singer well missed.

  37. Colin Hodgson

    God how brilliant Joe was.  It was like losing family when he passed over.  Proud to be from near his hometown of Sheffield.  Pity he never got the recognition he deserved in the UK.

  38. Don Wills

    Damn good. Such a pity it isn't live.

  39. breffnipark

    Heart and Soul ! That was Joe Cocker !

  40. Frank Parkinson

    I loved joe cocker, and I love this song, put the two together and you have brilliance, RIP Joe, sing in heaven x

  41. Jenny Allison

    Wrong album cover, of course. Wit Procol Harum's Matthew Fisher on organ and BJ WIlson on drums (on the day he had recorded With a Little from My Friends).

  42. drumheadthe1st

    Rest In Peace Joe. The world is already missing you and your huge voice

  43. Andrzej Kocikowski

    Goodbye Joe! You were great and so remain in our memory.

  44. randydavisman

    Just discovered this gem of an arrangement and interpretation by the late-great Joe Cocker...

  45. Terrence Branen

    Probably my favorite Dylan cover, along with my favorite Dylan song. R.I.P. Joe.

  46. Carole M

    RIP Joe Cocker - a unique and brilliant singer. This is my favourite track.

    Ian Grant

    @Carole M The brilliance of his interpretations and the richness of his voice, touch your soul like nobody else.

  47. Ronald Murchison

    R. I. P. Joe

  48. breffnipark

    I love this track !!
    Written brilliantly by Bob !
    Sung brilliantly by Joe !!
    " It all Good "

    soliloquyfor2 ..... Had to let the chills subside....
    I've loved Joe Cocker since he made the scene. The great ones never leave you alone.
