(William Stevenson / Norman Whitfield)

Well, well, I once believed
All fellas were nice
But girls, listen to me
And take my advice
A-girls, you'd better get yourselves
On the right track
'Cause finding a good man, girls
Is like finding a
(Needle in a haystack)
A-what did I say, girls?
(Needle in a haystack)

Girls, those fellas are sly, slick and shy, yeah
Oh, don't you ever let them catch you looking starry-eyed
They'll tell you that their love is true
And they'll walk right over you
Now girls, you'd better know these things
A-right off a-the bat
'Cause finding a good man, girls
Is like finding a
(Needle in a haystack)
What did I say, girls?
(Needle in a haystack)
Hey, hey, hey, hey

Well, now girls, I say, I'm tellin' you the natural facts
'Cause finding a good man, girls
Is like finding a
(Needle in a haystack)
What did I say, girls?
(Needle in a haystack)

I'm telling you, girls
You'd better look before you leap
Still water sometimes is a-very deep
You'll be in sorrow when you discover
That you're just his pasttime lover
Girls, you'd better know these things
A-right off a-the bat
'Cause finding a good man, girls
Is like finding a
(Needle in a haystack)
What did I say, girls?
(Needle in a haystack)

I say you'd better take heed
And listen to me
You'd better play hard to get
Or you're gonna regret
The day you were born, yeah
A-when you leaves you alone
I bet, you'd better regret
Oh, you'd better regret
