"Do Right Woman - Do Right Man" as written by Chips Moman and Dan Penn....
Take me to heart
And I'll always love you
And nobody can make me do wrong
Take me for granted, leaving love unsure
Makes will power weak
And temptation strong

A woman's only human
You should understand
She's not just a plaything
She's flesh and blood just like her man
If you want a do-right-all-day woman (woman)
You've got to be a do-right-all-night man (man)

Yeah yeah,
They say that it's a man's world
But you can't prove that by me
And as long as we're together baby
Show some respect for me

If you want a do-right-all-day woman (woman)
You've got to be a do-right-all-night man (man)

A woman's only human
Yes, you should understand
She's not just a plaything
She's flesh and blood just like her man
If you want a do-right-all-day woman (woman)
You've got to be a do-right-all-night man (man)
You've got to be a do-right-all-night man (man)

    General Commentwriting this in 2013, it's obvious to me that we'll never go back to the days when songs were written like this. props to aretha for immortalizing a positive message with her divine voice.. this is a call to action for all men to treat their women as their equals. and not just because that's how men "bag" women, or hold on to women, but because that's what women deserve. she's not saying anything about buying your woman fancy clothes or expensive jewelry, just pay her in love, affection, and respect.
