Oh oh oh
(A woman's gotta have it)
(A woman's gotta have it)

Do the things that keep a smile on her face
Say the words that make her feel better everyday
You betcha better keep on your p's and q's
If you don't, your woman you could easily lose

Oh, I had love, a true love and I lost it
And no one seems to understand
About the pain that it cost me
A woman's gotta have it, I believe

She's got to know that she's needed around
When you kiss her, you got to make her feel it
She wants to know that she's not walking on shaky ground
When you miss her, you got to be 4-realin'
Make her know that she's needed around

Don't take for granted the smile upon her face
Check a little bit closer, you might find a tear trace
Maybe the little girl never said a mufflin' word
But she's got to know that her voice is heard

Oh, I had love, a true love and I lost it
And no one seems to understand
About the pain that it cost me
A woman's gotta have it, I believe that I should know

She's got to know that she's needed around
When you kiss her, you got to make her feel it
She wants to know that she's not walking on shaky ground
When you miss her, you got to be 4-realin'
Make her know that she's needed around

Oh, I had love, a true love and I lost it
Now I'm sufferin' all this pain
That the true love cost me
A woman's gotta have it, I believe that I should know

She's got to know that she's needed around
When you kiss her, you got to make her feel it
She wants to know that she's not walking on shaky ground
When you miss her, you got to be 4-realin'
Make her know that she's needed around
