Ray Parker Jr. - A Woman Needs Love (Just Like You Do) Lyrics




Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo
Mmm-mmm-mmm

A woman needs a love just like you do, hoo
Don't kid yourself into thinkin' that she don't
She can fool around just like you do, hoo
Unless you give her all the lovin' she wants

Don't the mistake of thinkin' old fashioned
Times have changed from yesterday
But no longer will those old double standards
Be accepted by the women of today

So when you think you're foolin' her
She just might be foolin' you
Remember if you can do it
She can too

Because a woman needs love just like you do, hoo
Hey, don't kid yourself into thinking that she don't
She can fool around just like you do, hoo
Unless you give her all the lovin' she wants

When her eyes are beggin' for affection
Don't put her off, don't make her wait
Don't try to give her that worn out excuse
About being tired and workin' late

I tell you one day you'll come home early from work
Open up the door and get your feelings hurt

Because she needs it, yeah
A woman's got to have it, whoa, yeah, just like you
And if you're smart, mmm, you better stop foolin' around, hey, hey
Cause she will too, oh

Just like you do, hoo
Thinking that she don't, hoo, ooh
Just like you, hoo
Now an example to you

Is by the time poor Jack
Returned up the hill
Somebody else
Had been lovin' Jill

A woman needs love just like you do, hoo
Hey, don't kid yourself into thinkin' that she don't
She can fool around , she will fool around so
You better take out some insurance and be sure she won't

Give her the love, mmm , yeah
That sweet, sweet love, she wants it just like you
Cause she can fool around just like she will fool around
With you or without you, just like you do

A woman needs love just like you do, hoo
Hey, don't kid yourself into thinking that she don't, hoo, ooh
She can fool around just like you, hoo
A woman needs it just like you

    つい最近、この人のエターナル・ベスト盤なるアルバムを購入しました。
    (ゴースト・バスターズ収録)
    甘い声もですが、とても気持ちの良いグルーブ感の有る曲ばかりで、とても落ち着きます。
    嫌な気分の時でもリラックスできる、とても良いアルバムです。
    なので、もう1枚「After Dark」なるアルバムも購入しました。
    此方も良いアルバムです。
    一聴の価値有りです。

  26. MANUEL XAVIER

  60. Cash 509

    Yo, how come most artists these days don't know how to serenade and romance a woman with music like this? It's a shame. Any fool can use a woman then bounce. But a real ass man knows how to slowly and seductively make woman melt. Ah yes.

    YES SHE DOES... AND OFTEN TIMES SHELL GET IT...BUT YOULL KNOW WHEN YOU HAVE ONE WHOSE NOT JUST DEDICATED TO YOU BUT TO HERSELF...

    HER LIFE STYLE MAY SEEM VERY BORING TO MANY ...AND THERE ARE TIMES WHEN SHE WILL HAVE THE URGE TO WANNA GO OUT ON THE TOWN AND ENJOY,UNTIL SHE REALIZE JUST WHAT TIME IT IS AND FINDS HERSELF CUDDLED UP WATCHING A MOVIE,LISTENING TO MUSIC, CAUGHT UP IN MEMORIES OR SMILING BECAUSE SHE HAS SEEN OBSTACLES/ TEST SHE HAS OVER COME IN HER LIFE,AND SHE HAS FOUND DIFFERENT WAYS TO LIVE IN LIFE,WITH LESS HARM TO HERSELF...

    SO LIFE FOR HER DOES GO ON,NO MATTER WHAT DECISIONS OTHERS MAKE.

    THATS A BAD CHICK,ONE WHO WOULD HOLD YOU DOWN.

    Life has sounds, that for us to hear,
    You need to learn to start over.
    It's like playing the same guitar,
    and compose a new song in it ...
    Sometimes music is the best advice you can hear ...

    Many people can translate,
    the feelings through the music.
    To these wonderful composers our thanks,
    because some of the most remarkable passages of our lives,
    can be remembered every time we hear our soundtrack ...

    Show! ... Great Video and Beautiful Music.
    Congratulations. A beautiful post. Thanks!
    A Great Day. Happy Holidays and A Merry Christmas ...

  89. anderson pereira

    when I listen to this music and others I have the impression of seeing an architectural work, where everything is in its place, all the instruments, working together to form this beautiful work called music, this is true art.

  90. Snježana Ćaleta

    The sexiest voice ever!

  91. Sanele Mdlalose

    Music to my ears...👌 🔥 🔊 still relevant even in 2019

  92. Fernando Silva

    Muito Show esse clip, simples mas bem legal conforme a letra da musica.

  93. Teresa Abney

    A woman needs love just like you do...don't kid yourself into thinking that she don't...don't make the mistake of thinking old fashioned; times have changed from yesterday; no longer will those old double standards be accepted by the women of today... When her eyes are begging for affection, don't put her off, don't make her wait; don't try to give her that worn out excuse about being tired and working late...
