"If I Was Your Woman/Walk On By" as written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David....
Eh, yo Mo Bee
Drop it on me
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, let's do it like this

If I was your woman
And you were my man
You'd have no other woman
You'd be weak as a lamb
If you had the strength
To walk out my door
My love would overrule my sense
And I'd call you back for more

If I was your woman
(If I was your woman)
If I was your woman
(If I was your woman)
And you were my man

Yeah
She tears you down darling
Says you're nothing at all
But I'll pick you up darling
When she lets you fall
'Cause, you're like a diamond
But she treats you like glass
Yet you beg her to love you
But me you won't ask

If I were your woman
(If I was your woman)
If I were your woman
(If I was your woman)
If I were your woman
(If I was your woman)
Here's what I'd do (what would you do?)
I'd never never no, no, stop loving you
Yeah, yeah!

Life is so crazy
And love is unkind
Because she was first, darling
Will she hang on your mind
You're a part of me
But you don't even know it
I'm what you need
But I'm too afraid to show it

If I were your woman
(If I was your woman)
If I were your woman
(If I was your woman)
If I were your woman
(If I was your woman)
Here's what I'd do (whatchu do?)
I'd never, never no, no, stop loving you

If I were your woman
If I was your woman
Here's what I'd do (whatchu do?)
I'd never, never, never stop loving you

(If I were your woman
If I were your woman
If I were your woman
If I were your woman
If I were your woman)

    General CommentI love the Gladys Knight version, but it sounds just as good when sung by my girl Alicia.If I Was Your Woman (Walk On By) is the typical story of a girl who is in love with a guy, who loves another girl that treats him like crap, and is to busy tryna win this other heiffer's heart, that he never even realizes how much the right girl loves him.*sigh* Yeah, its real sad, and I think that at least once in a lifetime, sometimes more, a girl finds herself caught up in this all-too-common predicament.

    *Alicia Keys for life*
