Ain't no way for me to love you,
If you won't let me.
It ain't no way for me to give you all you need,
If you won't let me give all of me.
I know that a woman's duty is to help and love a man,
And that's the way it was planned.
Oh, but how can I, how can I, how can I
Give you all the things I can,
If you're tying both of my hands?

Oh, it ain't no way (ain't no way).
It ain't no way (ain't no way).
It just ain't no way, baby (ain't no way).
Ain't no way baby (ain't no way).
It ain't no way for me to love you,
If you won't let me.

Stop trying to be someone you're not.
How cold and cruel is a man
Who paid too much for what he got?
And if you need me to love you, say, say you do.
Oh, then baby, baby, baby
Don't you know that I need you!

Oh, It ain't no way.
I'll tell you that it ain't no way,
It ain't no way.
It ain't no way, baby, no.
Just ain't no way.
It sure ain't no way
It ain't no way for me to love you,
If you won't let me...

(Ad lib to fade)no way... if you won't let me... ain't no way
