Alicia Keys
A Woman's Worth

(Verse 1)
You could buy me diamonds
You could buy me pearls
Take me on a cruise around the world
Baby, you know I'm worth it
Dinner lit by candles
Run my bubble bath
Make love tenderly to last, and last
Baby, you know I'm worth it

(Bridge)
Wanna' please; wanna' keep; wanna' treat your
Woman right?
Not just dough, or a show, let her know she's
Worth your time
You will lose, if you choose, to refuse to put her first
She will and she can find a man who knows her worth!
Mmmmmmmmm

(Chorus)
'Cause a real man knows a real woman when he
Sees her (when he sees her)
And a real woman knows a real man
Ain't 'fraid to please her (please her)
And a real woman knows a real man always
Comes first (first)
And a real man just can't deny
A woman's worth

Mmmmmm hmmmmm (x1), Mmmmmm hmmmmm (x1), Mmmmmm hmmmmm (x1), Mmm

(Hold up)

(Verse 2)
'Cause If you treat me fairly
I'll give you all my goods...
Treat you like a real woman should
Baby, I know you're worth it
If you never play me
Promise not to bluff
I'll hold you down when shit gets rough
'Cause baby, I know you're worth it

(Bridge 2)
She walks the mile; makes you smile, all the while
Being true
Don't take for granted the passions that she has
For you
You will lose, if you choose, to refuse to put her first
She will and she can find a man who knows
Her worth!
... OH!

(Chorus)
'Cause a real man knows a real woman when he
Sees her (when he sees her)
And a real woman knows a real man
Ain't 'fraid to please her (please me)
And a real woman knows a real man always
Comes first (first, baby)
And a real man just can't deny
A woman's worth

[Breakdown]
No need to read between the lines
Spelled out for you (spelled out for you)
Just hear this song
'Cause you can't go wrong when you value(Better value...)
A woman's, woman's, woman's, woman's Worth! (yeah)

[Chorus (x2)]
'Cause a real man knows a real woman when he
Sees her (when he sees her[1st time]) (nothin' like a woman's worth [2nd time])
And a real woman knows a real man
Ain't 'fraid to please her (please me [1st time]) (ohhh, ooh [2nd time])
And a real woman knows a real man always
Comes first (first, baby [1st time]) (comes first [2nd time])
And a real man just can't deny
A woman's worth (a woman's worth)

Mmmmn hmmn
Dooooh
Mmmn hmmn
Suba duba do'h do'h
Mmmn hmmn
Doodle dee doodle dee
Mmmmn hmmn
Oohh
Mhmn mhmn
Better Cherish that woman
Mhmn mhmn
You better be good for that woman
Mhmn hmmn (x2)
Ooooh yeah

    It takes a responsible man to keep and treasure his womans' worth, , , women deserv to b treated more specialy and unconditional because all wat they worth is to b kept happy

    A woman's worth is a lament on a basic rule of thump most quoted but least understood. The rule of thump is to show some love towards a woman. Simple as that may appear but least implemented as demonstrated by illustrations of a man who cannot appreciate his woman's efforts, little or great. This song unravels simple things an average man takes for granted like appreciating little things and commands that when a man can appreciate such little things, it means that he can do anything for his woman. In essence, the song advances a meaning that when a man recognize the things that makes a woman happy from the little to the great, it can be certain that such a man will practically show his woman that she is his priority. Therefore, he can treat her like a queen and consequently infidelity has no place in such a man's heart. Put differently, the song reflects that a woman is the first step a man takes to achieve success but only when he knows how to show her some love

    Most men don't value a woman until he has lost her. The men out there that do value his woman, knows that if he lets her get away, he's losing a gold mine.

    A womans worth is just that women go through so much in life and they need to be treated the way you would want to be treated

    I know that you are but what am I? It is ok asking you're man to treat like you're worth it but it works both ways! A relationship has to be equal, 50 / 50 or it won't work!
