I'm a woman
Lord knows it's hard
I need a real man to give me what I need
Sweet attention, love and tenderness
When it's real, it's unconditional, I'm telling y'all
'Cause a man just, ain't a man if he ain't man enough

To love you when you're right
Love you when you're wrong
Love you when you're weak
Love you when you're strong
Take you higher
When the world got your feeling low

He's giving you his last
'Cause he's thinking of you first
Giving comfort, when he's thinking that you're hurt
That's what's done when you really love someone
I'm tellin' y'all
I'm tellin' y'all

'Cause you're a real man
And Lord knows it's hard
Sometimes you just need a woman's touch
Sweet affection, love and support
When it's real, it's unconditional
I'm telling y'all, oh
'Cause a woman ain't a woman if she ain't woman enough

To love you when you're right
Love you when you're wrong
Love you when you're weak
Love you when you're strong
Take you higher
When the world got your feeling low

She's giving you her best
Even when you're at your worse
Giving comfort when she's thinking that you're hurt
That's what's done when you really love someone
I'm telling y'all
I'm telling y'all

Sometimes you're gonna argue
Sometimes you're gonna fight
Sometimes it's gonna feel like, it'll never be right
But something so strong keeps you hold on and on
It don't make sense but it makes a good song
'Cause a man just ain't a man if he ain't man enough

To love you when you're right
Love you when you're wrong
Love you when you're weak
Love you when you're strong
When the world got you feelin' low

He's giving you his last
'Cause he's thinking of you first
Giving comfort when he's thinking that you're hurt
That's what's done when you really love someone
I'm telling y'all
I'm telling y'all
I'm telling y'all that a woman ain't a woman
If she ain't woman enough

Love you when you're right
Love you when you're wrong
Love you when you're weak
Love you when you're strong
Take you higher and higher
When the world got you feeling low

She's giving you her best
Even when you're at your worse
Giving comfort when she's thinkin' that you're hurt
That's what's done when you really love someone
I'm tellin' y'all
I'm tellin' y'all

Hmm, hmm, yeah
Hmm, hmm, yeah
Hmm, hmm, yeah
