Listen everybody, especially you girls
Is it right to be left alone
While the one you love is never home?

Well, I love too hard
All my friends sometimes say
I believe, I believe
That a woman should be loved that way

But it hurts me so inside
To see her treat me so unkind
Somebody, somewhere tell her it's unfair
Let me hear you, baby

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

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

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

Now, you chicks, you do agree
That this ain't the way love's supposed to be
Let me hear you say
(Yeah, yeah)
Say, yeah, yeah
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)

Up early in the morning
With her on my mind
Just to find out
All night, baby, I've been crying

But I believe, I believe
That a woman is a man's best friend
I'm gonna stick by her until the very end

But she causes so much misery
I forgot how it’s supposed to be
Somebody, somewhere, tell her it's unfair
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
You know what I'm talking about

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

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

Everybody knows, especially you girls
Love can be so sad
But I have a love that's twice as bad

Now, you chicks, you do agree
That this ain't the way love's supposed to be
Let me hear you say
(Yeah, yeah)
Say, yeah, yeah
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)

Now, you chicks, you do agree
That this ain't the way love's supposed to be
Let me hear you say
(Yeah, yeah)
Say, yeah, yeah, listen
(Yeah, yeah)

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

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

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

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