(Hello) Barbara, this is Shirley

Now wait a minute, Shirley
I'm a young woman
And can't aford to all the things
You do for this man
I don't even have a job

And I can't buy his clothes
Pay his car note
And I surely can't keep
Money in his pocket

But I can give him what he needs
When he needs it
And that's all he expects from me

I can give him love
From his woman to you

There's a thing or two
I'd like to say
I don't care who claims this man
I'm gonna love him in a way

Woman to woman
He spent last night with me
Stayed here 'cause this is
Where he wanted to be

From his woman to you
I've got to make it
As plain as I can
Seems to me you're doing
Too much for the man

From his woman to you
Buying his loving
It's giving up yourself
And I feel sorry for you
I feel sorry for you

I don't mind sharing
If you don't bother me
I, I, I, I won't bother you

From his woman to you
I don't know what
You're gonna, gonna do

But he's been given me
What he's getting from you
Woman to woman, ooh
That's, that's the truth

From his woman to you
Seems like, seems like
You're the fool
I'm his only woman

And I love him
And I ain't about to give him
Give him up, up, up

I'm his only woman
