If I Were Your Woman





If I were your woman
And you were my man
You'd have no other woman
You'd be weak as a lamb
If you had the strength
To walk out that door
My love would overrule my sense
And I'd call you back for more

If I were your woman
(If you were my woman)
If I were your woman
(If you were my woman)
And you were my man

Mmm yeah
She tears you down, darling
Says you're nothing at all
But I'll pick you up, darling
When she lets you fall
You're like a diamond
But she treats you like glass
Yet you beg her to love you
But me you don't ask

If I were your woman
(If you were my woman)
If I were your woman
If you were my woman
(If I were your woman)
If you were my woman
Here's what I'd do
I'd never no, no stop loving you
Yeah, yeah, mmm

Life is so crazy and love is unkind
Because she came first, darling
Will she hang on your mind?
You're a part of me
And you don't even know it
I'm what you need
But I'm too afraid to show it

If I were your woman
(If you were my woman)
If I were your woman
(If I were your woman)
If you were my woman
(If you were my woman)
Here's what I'd do
I'd never no, no stop loving you

Oh yeah, if I were your woman
Here's what I'd do
I'd never, never, never stop loving you
If I were your woman
You're sweet loving woman
You'd need no other woman

If you were my woman
If I were your woman
(If you were my woman)
Here's what I'd do
(If you were my woman)
If I were your woman

The World of Soul Music Loses Its Queen

The world of soul music has lost its undisputed queen. From the moment she stepped up on the altar of her father’s church and began singing, everyone knew they were in the presence of a future legend. Despite her young age, Aretha could sing and she would attract churchgoers from all around to hear her. That she was so young was amazing, but certainly her audiences must have realized that bigger things lay ahead for her. Little Aretha taught herself how to play the piano and amazed everyone around her, including motherly figure Mahalia Jackson, who was a gospel star herself. Her father began to see that his daughter could do more with her voice than just attract people to hear about the Lord- she could use her god given gift to sing to the world.


Her father avoided the obvious record company- Motown- as he felt his daughter would get lost among all the other African-American acts signed there. Certainly Columbia Records could advance his daughter’s career; she’d be one of their few “ra…
