Want to tell you 'bout the girl I love
My she looks so fine
She's the only one that I been dreamin' of
Maybe someday she will be all mine

I want to tell her that I love her so
I thrill with her every touch
I need to tell her she's the only one I really love

I got a woman, want to ball all day
I got a woman; she won't be true, no
I got a woman, stay drunk all the time
I said I got a little woman and she won't be true

Sunday morning when we go down to church
See the menfolk standin' in line
I said they come to pray to the Lord
With my little girl, looks so fine

In the evening when the sun is sinkin ' low
Everybody's with the one they love
I walk the town
Keep a-searchin' all around:

Lookin' for my street corner girl
I got a woman, want to ball all day
I got a woman; she won't be true, no
I got a woman, stay drunk all the time

I said I got a little woman and she won't be true
In the bars, with the men who play guitars
Singin', Drinkin' and rememberin' the times
My little lover does a midnight shift

She followed around all the time
I guess there's just one thing a -left for me to do
Gonna pack my bags and move on my way
'Cause I got a worried mind

Sharin' what I thought was mine
Gonna leave her where the guitars play

I got a woman, she won't be true, no no
I got a woman, want to ball all day
I got a woman, stay drunk all the time
I got a little woman and she won't be true

(Hey, hey what can I do)
I said she won't be true
(Hey, hey what can I say)
Hey, hey, what can I do

I got a woman she won't be true
Lord, hear what I say
I got a woman, want to ball all day.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.

Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
