If I don't love you like you want me to do
Baby, I'm trying, I'm trying
And if I'm not fair when you need talking to
Baby, I'm trying, I'm trying

Everyday in the week
I mean seven days
Just to love you in so many ways
I'm trying baby, can't you see I'm trying

And if I don't please ya and give you all you need
Baby, I'm trying, I'm trying
You know you mean the whole world to me
And that's what keeps me trying, I'm trying

I may not provide all your kids I will do
But deep down in my soul
That's what I want to do
I'm trying, yeah baby, can't you see I'm trying

No stumbling blocks can block my plan
Whatever I got I'll run and give you half
And in the world if I don't succeed
Baby, I'd be rather be, you and me

If I don't love you like you want me to do
Baby, I'm trying, I'm trying
And if I'm not fair when you need talking to
Baby, I'm trying, I'm trying

I may not provide all your kids I will do
But deep down in my soul
That's what I want to do
I keep on trying, baby, can't you see I'm trying
Oh yes I am, girl

I'm trying, Lord have mercy
Can't you see that I am trying
Everyday when I get up and go to work
I'm trying, trying to make you happy
