Percy Sledge - When a man loves a woman
Tekst en muziek: Percy Sledge
(1966)






When a man loves a woman
Can’t keep his mind on nothing else
He’ll trade the world
For the good thing he’s found
If she is bad, he can’t see it
She can do no wrong
Turn his back on his best friend
If he put her down



When a man loves a woman
Spend his very last dime
Tryin’ to hold on to what he needs
He’d give up all his comfort
And sleep out in the rain
If she said that’s the way it ought to be



Well, this man loves a woman
I gave you everything I had
Tryin’ to hold on to your acrid love
Baby, please don’t treat me bad



When a man loves a woman
Down deep in his soul
She can bring him such misery
If she plays him for a fool
He’s the last one to know
Lovin’ eyes can’t ever see



When a man loves a woman
He can do no wrong
He can never own some other girl
Yes, when a man loves a woman
I know exactly how he feels
’Cause baby, baby, baby, you’re my world



When a man loves a woman
I know exactly how he feels
