When A Woman Doesn't Want You Lyrics

by Elton John

She may be lost
She may be out of bounds
All her tenderness and charms
Could be something
A man like me has never found

But in her woman's way
She's still a little girl
The things that she wants
The things that she needs
Oh well, the choice is hers

'Cause you can't take a woman
When she doesn't want you
And you can't be a man
If you're blind to reason

Man might be strong
True love is stronger
You gotta play it straight
When a woman doesn't want you

Her voice invites
Her eyes say more than words
But her needs and complications
Can tear away the memory
Of last night's girl

And if you're weak
Yeah, we're all weak sometime
The best things can wait
The best times they come
Oh, when the strength is kind

'Cause you can't take a woman
When she doesn't want you
You can't be a man
If you're blind to reason

Man might be strong
But true love is stronger
You gotta play it straight
When a woman doesn't want you

And if you can't read her
Leave her alone
And if you don't know by now
She's not someone's prize
And you can't take her home

'Cause you can't take a woman
When she doesn't want you
You can't be a man
If you're blind to reason

Man might be strong
But true love is stronger
You gotta play it straight
You gotta play it straight
You gotta play it straight
When a woman doesn't want you
