Stephanie Mills - If I Were Your Woman Lyrics

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

She tears you down Darling
Says you're nothing at all
But I'll pick you up Darling
When she lets you fall
You're like a diamond
And she treats you like glass
Yet you make it hard to love you
But Babe 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

Life is so crazy
And love is unkind
Because she came first
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...'d need no other woman

Stephanie Mills If I Were Your Woman Comments
  1. Jorge Estomba

    Gladys is magnificient , Stephanie is second w this lovely version by a lovely lady!!!
    She and Gladys can be my woman any time !!!!!

  2. Jerome Smith

    Now, THIS is how you do a cover of a classic ballad!! Queen Stephanie killed this and truly made this song her own. This is one of the best cover renditions of a classic song ever done and no doubt she did Empress Gladys proud with her song!!

    Respectable. Gladys Knight’s version is the best, but this is a good second. That crap Alycia Keys did should be used to wrap fish scraps.

  21. Tony McNeil

    One of the rare songs where I love both the original (Gladys Knight) and the cover equally.

  22. Kenneth Brown Sr

    I really like this beautiful lady! I Remember making sure that I got tickets to every show she did! I also remember one of the most employable moments was listening to her wind Home and Baby I Feel Good there is no comparison. Being a Musician myself, I think this lady is one of the greatest R & B singers of all time. In also believe she is one greatest hands down in the popular music arena. When I hear her I don't want hear anybody else. MAY GOD BLESS AND KEEP YOU!🕍🎺🎹

  51. Sara Ann Vickers

    I love old music mainly because these women can sang they can blow, have you heard a song so well put together that you just can't interfere by singing with it because you didn't want to mess it up. Talent  knowing I'll just jump in and straight mess up the words

  52. Yuri Sasame

    I like the Original Gladys Knight version but I Love Stephanie Mills version now that's how you do a remake

    Deborah McCoy

    I get your drift, to and to each it’s own opinion, but in all honesty, Stephanie should have done the original because Gladys’s can’t even “ touch “ this version.

  53. Wynne Pettaway

    Lawrence McKinney

    cherri3seedz the realest shit i ever heard besides her telling me if she was my woman

    Michelle Thomas

    One of my favorite verses from the song

  84. Randy Bagley

    a great rendition and I love Stephanie Mills - to me she was the "voice" elegance, power, and great lyrical phrasing.  So much dexterity in her voice.

    Now, with that said, some here are comparing her and pitting two great singers against each other in Gladys and Stephanie Mills.

    Stephanie's version is more "grand" and forceful - no question there.

    Glady's version is more classic and intimate - still very much powerful and she has the best bravado than any other female singer I have ever heard - I like Glady's more, not because she is a better singer, but because it's more intimate and feels like she is singing directly to the person she loves.

    Both versions are powerful and the arrangements are completely different - but both deliver. On this song, I just like the more intimate vocals of Glady's more and her interpretation.

  85. George L

    Stephanie as good as Gladys? Are you kidding? She wouldn't be good enough to open for the empress  of soul.

    Shirley B

    +George L they are not to be compared!

  86. Toni-Ann Stewart

    wonder if this was for Michael Jackson LOL

  87. ronny davis

    She's better than Gladys Knight!!!

    Military Veteran

    BOTH are Wonderful Singers! :-) :-)

    Sheena Perez

    I like gladys version better...but I love both

    Mary Jane Lucas

    Sorry but Gladys owns this ! Woman to woman hands down !

  88. T'nikka Do-well

    Love love love me some Stephanie Mills...

  89. Brooklyn Love

  91. Yolanda Oliver


  92. Ruth Jenkins
