Can I Get A Witness? Lyrics

by Dusty Springfield

Ah, listen everybody, especially you guys
Is it right to be left alone
When the one you love is never home?
I love too hard

Yeah, my friends sometimes say, but I believe
Oh, I believe that a boy should be loved that way
But it hurts me so inside, see him treat me so unkind
A somebody, a somewhere, tell him it ain't fair

Can I get a witness?
Can I get a witness?
Can I get a witness?
Somebody?

Is it right to be treated so bad?
When you've given everything you had
Keep on tossing in my sleep
'Cause I haven't seen my baby all week

Now, you people you do agree
That this ain't the way love's supposed to be
A let me hear you
Let me hear you say yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Up early in the morning with him on my mind
Just to find out all night that I've been crying
But I believe, oh, that a boy is a girl's best friend
So, I'm gonna stick by him 'til the very end

But, he caused so much misery
I forget how love's supposed to be
Somebody, somewhere tell him
It ain't fair

Can I get a witness?
Can I get a witness?
I want a witness
Witness, witness, witness, witness

Everybody knows
Especially you boys that a love can be sad
But half a love is twice as bad
Now you people you do agree
That this ain't the way love's supposed to be
Let me hear you, let me hear you say yeah, yeah, yeah

I want a witness
Can I get a witness?
I want a witness
Come on, witness
I want a witness, hey
Come on, witness
I want a witness
