Diana Ross – Can I Get A Witness lyrics

Oh, listen everybody
(Everybody)
Especially you guys
(Especially you guys)
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 a man should be loved that way
But it hurts me so inside to see him treat me so unkind
Somebody, somewhere tell him it's unfair

Can I get a witness?
(Can I get a witness?)
I want a witness
(Can I get a witness?)

Somebody
(Can I get a witness?)
I want a witness
(Can I get a witness?)

Is it right to be treated so bad
When you've given everythin' you had?
Even tossin' in my sleep
'Cause I haven't seen my baby all week

Now, you girls do agree
That this ain't the way love's supposed to be
Let me hear you, let me hear you say, "Yeah"

Up early in the morning
(Can I get a witness?)
With him on my mind
(Can I get a witness?)

A just to find out all night
(Can I get a witness?)
That I've been cryin'
(Can I get a witness?)

But I believe a man's a woman's best friend
So I'm gonna stick by him, yeah, till the very end
But he causes so much misery, I forget how love is supposed to be
Somebody, somewhere, tell him it ain't fair

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

Everybody knows, especially you girls
Our love can be sad but I have a love that's twice as bad
Now you girls who agree that this ain't the way love's supposed to be
Let me hear you, let me hear you say, "Yeah"

I want a witness
(Can I get a witness?)
I want a witness
(Can I get a witness, witness?)

Witness, witness
(Can I get a witness?)
Witness, witness
(Can I get a witness, witness?)

I want a witness
(Can I get a witness?)
Can I get a witness?
