Knight, Gladys - If I Were Your Woman Lyrics




If I were your woman
And you were my man
You'd have no other woman
You'd be weak as a lamb
If you had the strength
To walk out that door
My love would over rule my sense
And I'd call you back for more

If I were your woman
If you were my woman
If I were your woman
If you were my woman
And you were my man

Yeah
She tears you down Darling
Says you're nothing at all
But I'll pick you up Darling
When she let's you fall
You're like a diamond
But she treats you like glass
Yet you beg her to love you
But me you don't ask

If I were your woman
If you were my woman
If I were your woman
If you were my woman
If I were your woman
If you were my woman
Here's what I'd do
I'd never no, no, no stop loving you

Yeah
Life is so crazy
And love is unkind
Because she came first darling
Will she hang on your mind
You're a part of me
And you don't even know it
I'm what you need
But I'm too afraid to show it

If I were your woman
If you were my woman
If I were your woman
If you were my woman
If I were your woman
If you were my woman
Here's what I'd do
I'd never, no, no, no stop loving you

If I were your woman
Here's what I'd do
I'd never, never, never stop loving you
If I were your woman
You're sweet lovin' woman

If I were your woman
If you were my woman
If I were your woman
If you were my woman
If I were your woman
If you were my woman...

... you'd need no other woman

Knight, Gladys If I Were Your Woman Comments
  1. Jimmy Bob

    Yeah bass!

  2. Samuel Griffin

    Released in January 1971 by Motown own Gladys Knight and Pips

  3. Manuel Tubens

    For a long time after my mother passed away. I couldn't listen to Neither One of Us, or If I were Your woman. Those songs brought back memories of my mother, and whenever they'd play either song I'd break down crying.

  4. Jeremy Alexander

    How can you love a woman you never met? There's noting like this.

  5. Matthew Dagnan

    Christ in heaven The voice on Gladys! Damn son!!

  6. DJ 1206

    The band is so tight

  7. Carlos Bright

    Who else is listening to this song February 2, 2020. I was in the 9th grade in 1970 when this song first came out. It seems like yesterday. Lord Jesus, where did the time go? So many of my classmates, neighbors, and family members have past away. The Angel of Death will eventually come for me and I am trying to enjoy my remaining life on earth.😂😂😂

  8. Robert Pace

    So glad I got to live through the decades that produced music like this. Thanks Gladys and the Pips too☺

  9. Shawn Hall

    The Pips always do they thing..

    Serious goosebumps. God what a voice!!!

  15. jim bob

  17. Joann Taylor

    I Love this but he did everything to rid himself of me !

  18. Vanessa *Chazzi44* BROOKS

    Nobody can say it like Gladys. "You're a part of me but you don't even know it" Powerful words describing a powerful love.

  19. Dina Walker

    This song title could be my name.
    If I would be my first name.
    Were would be my middle name.
    Your woman would be my last name

    Mack Eee

  20. Hal Jordan

    Your apart of me.. And you dont even know it.. (Cold ass verse)

  21. Shannon Tony

    The Empress of Soul lives the phrase “start low, go slow, catch fire, rise higher.” Thank you Gladys Knight!

  24. Julius Ashcroft

    if you had the strength
    To walk out that door
    My love would overrule my sense
    And I'd call you back for more.

  84. T W

    Let’s be honest. There is a reason he has a side chic. Without being offended, listen to the song and take notes. Side chics treat you like a king. She’s your lover, yo hoe and your friend. She does things wifey use to do, she think that’s nasty now. Side chic is open 24/7, and she puts the cherry on top. Side chic never too tired or sleepy or has a headache or whatever else excuse wifey give. Side chic will do it in the park, in the car..... it doesn’t matter to her. Wifey, he doesn’t want to leave, nor does he want to cheat, he really wish it was you. He just want to be notice by you wifey. Now

  85. SALTY H2O

    killer!
