What is a woman
To do with a man
Who treats her unkindly
When she's down, all she can

I cried so many nights
How we fuss and fight
The make ups and the break ups
I loved you and only you
The things you do

When you love somebody
When you love somebody
(things you do, ooh)

I gave you my lovin'
With no questions asked
Tears on my pillow
From all your disrespect

I didnЎ¦t care about your past
I only wanted to make us last
And oooohhh
I loved you and only you
The things you do

When you love somebody
Oh love, yeah, um
When you love somebody
I loved you baby
Nooo
When you love somebody
When you love somebody
The things you do
For love
Ooh
The things that you do yeah

Who knows what tomorrow may bring me
All I know is it is what it is
And why, do I look for clues, y'all?
When I don't have to question you

When you love somebody
When you love somebody
YЎ¦all hear me
The things you do x 4
All in the name of love
(when you love somebody)
(oh you make me wanna...)
All in the name of love
In the name of love
All the things you do for love
(somebody, somebody, somebody, somebody)
Love love love x 2
ItЎ¦s in the name of love
The things you do for love
Love, love, love
(y'all hear me when I sing it to you...
Love somebody, love somebody, love somebody)
