This song is by Aretha Franklin and appears on the compilation album Rare & Unreleased Recordings From The Golden Reign Of The Queen Of Soul (2007).

Original video
You don't want me
And you don't want nobody else to want me
What kind of man, what kind of man are you?

You don't need me
And you don't want nobody else to need me
What kind of thing are you trying to send me through?

Now if you're not gonna take care of business
Then you ought to stop taking up space
Because you're just taking up, that's all you're doing
You're just taking up another man's place

Oh, baby, you don't even, you don't even
Want me to go to the store alone
What kind of man, what manner of man are you?

You run over me
You run right over me trying to answer the telephone
Tell me what kind of thing
What kind of thing do you think you're going to put me through?

You keep me wanting
You keep me wanting the one thing you never gave
Well, right here now, you can stop taking up another man's space

Baby, I've been faithful
And you know I've been true
But if you're not gonna love me
Tell me what do you expect me to do

Oh, if you're not gonna love me, baby
And you know I need, I need, I need somebody to love me
Then you just ought to stop taking up another man's space
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, baby

If you're gonna leave me
If you know you're really gonna leave me, baby
Don't you know that you ought to
You just ought to stop taking up another man's place
You know I need somebody right now
