Can I Get a Witness
Listen, everybody, especially you girls
Is it right to be left alone
While the one you love is never home?
I love too hard, my friends sometimes say
But I believe, I believe
That a woman should be loved that way
But it hurts me so inside
To see her treat me so unkind
Somebody, somewhere, tell her it's unfair

Can I get a witness?
Can I get a witness?
Can I get a witness?
Somebody

Is it right to be treated so bad
When you've given everything you had?
Even tossing in my sleep
'Cause I haven't seen my baby all week
Now, you chicks do agree
That this ain't the way love's supposed to be
Let me hear, let me hear you say, yeah, yeah

Up early in the morning with her on my mind
Just to find out all night that I've been crying
But I believe a woman's a man's best friend
So I'm gonna stick by her 'til the very end
But she causes so much misery
I forget how love is supposed to be
Somebody, somewhere, tell her it ain't fair

Can I get a witness?
I want a witness
Witness, witness
Witness, witness

Everybody knows, especially you girls
Love can be sad
But I have a love that's twice as bad
Now all you chicks agree
That this ain't the way it's supposed to be
Let me hear you, let me hear you say, yeah, yeah

I want a witness
I want a witness
I want a witness
I want a witness
