Ah, listen, everybody, especially you girls
(Body, girls)
It's not right to be left alone, when the one you love is never home
I loved too hard, my friends sometime say
But I believe, I believe that a woman should be loved that way

But it hurts me so, inside
To see you treat me so unkind
Somebody, somewhere, tell her, it ain't fair

Can I get a witness?
(Can I get a witness?)
I want a witness
(Can I get a witness?)

I want a witness
(Can I get a witness?)
Somebody
(Can I get a witness?)

Is it right to be treated so bad, when you give it everything you had?
If I talks in my sleep, 'cuz I haven't seen my baby all week
Now you chicks, you all agree, this ain't the way it's supposed to be
Let me hear you, let me hear you say, "Yeah, yeah"

Up early in the morning, well, they're all in my mind
Just to find her out all night, well, I've been cryin'
But I believe, a woman's a man's best friend
I'm gonna stick by her 'til the very end
(Witness, can I get a witness?)

Well, she caused me so much misery
I forget how it's supposed to be
Somebody, somewhere, tell her, it ain't fair

Can I get a witness?
Can I get a witness?
(Can I get a witness)
I want a witness
(Can I get a witness?)

Witness, witness
(Can I get a witness?)
Witness, witness
(Can I get a witness?)

Everybody knows, especially you girls, that a love can be sad
But half a love's is twice as bad
Now you chicks, you all agree that ain't the way love's supposed to be
Let me hear ya, let me hear you say "Yeah, yeah"

I want a witness
(Can I get a witness?)
I want a witness
(Can I get a witness?)

Yeah, I want a witness
(I want a witness)
Somebody
(Can I get a witness?)

Is it right to be treated so bad
When you give it everything you had?
People, I talk in my sleep
'Cuz I haven't seen my baby all week

Yeah, she caused me so much misery
That ain't the way it's supposed to be
Let me hear ya, let me hear you say "Yeah, yeah"

I want a witness
(Can I get a witness?)
I want a witness
(Can I get a witness?)

I want to be
(Can I get a witness?)
I want a witness
(Can I get a witness?)

Witness, witness, yeah
I want a witness
