"Just Like a Woman" as written by and Clifton Chenier....
Nobody feels any pain
Tonight as I stand outside the rain
Everybody knows that baby's got new clothes
But lately he sees her ribbons and her bows
Have fallen from her curls

She takes just like a woman--yes, she does
She makes love just like a woman--yes, she does
And she aches just like a woman
But she breaks just like a little girl

Queen Mary she's my friend
Yes, I believe that I'll go see her again
Nobody has to guess that baby can't be blessed
Till she finally finds out that she's like all the rest
With her fog, her amphetamines, and her pills

It was raining from the first
And I was dying there of thirst
So I came in here
And your long-time curse hurts
But what's worse is this pain in here
I can't stay in here
Ain't it clear

That I just don't fit?
Yes, I believe it's time for me to quit
When we meet again introduced as friends
Well, please, don't let on that you knew me when
I was hungry and it was your world

I fake just like a woman--yes, I do
I make love just like a woman--yes, I do
And I ache just like a woman
But I break, yes, I break like a little girl
She takes just like a woman
She makes love
She makes love just like a woman
She takes love
She aches just like a woman
Oh, but she breaks--yes, she breaks
