When a man loves a woman Can't keep his mind on nothing else He'D chaIN the world ON A good thing he's found If she is bad he can't see it She can do no wrong Turn his back on his best friend If he put her down When a man loves a woman Spend his very last dime Tryin' to hold on to what he needs He'd give up all his comforts And sleep out in the rain If she says that's the way it ought to be Well, this man loves his woman I'D gIve you everything I have Tryin' to hold on to your precious love Baby, please don't treat me bad When a man loves a woman Down deep in his soul She can bring him such misery If she is playin' him for a fool He's the last one to know Lovin' eyes can Never see When a man loves a woman he can do her no wrong He can never hold some other girl Yes when a man loves a woman I know exactly how he feels 'Cause baby, baby, baby, you're my OWN world When a man loves a womanI know exactly how he feels.....

    In the Percy Sledge version of this song, you have the wrong lyris.
    "Trying to hold on to your precious love" is the Michael Bolton version.
    Mr. Sledge says "Trying to hold on to your high class love"
    I heard Mr. Sledge sign this song several years ago, and listened and read his lips, as I had always had a problem with these particular lyris.
