Just Like a Woman Lyrics

by Nina Simone

She takes just like a woman, yes, she does
And she makes love just like a woman
And she aches just like a woman
But she breaks like a little girl

Nobody feels any pain
Tonight as I stand inside the rain
Everybody knows baby's got new clothes
Lately I see her ribbons and her bows
And the problems from her curls

She takes just like a woman, yes, she does
And she makes love just like a woman
And she aches just like a woman
And she breaks like a little girl

It raining from the first
Everybody knows I was dying of thirst
So I came in here, long-times curse
And whats worse is this pain in here
I can't stay in here, ain't it clear, ain't it clear

I must be clear
I believe it's time for us to quit
When we meet again and introduced as friends
Please don't let on that you knew me when
I was hungry and it was your world

I take just like a woman, yes, I do
And I make love just like a woman
And I ache just like a woman
But I break just like a little girl
