This is the way baby
This is the way
This is the way baby
This is the way

You got to question
Your situation
He's taking advantage of you
You're such a pushover
He's rolling you over
And all that you
Ask him to do

So stand up for yourself
And get what you deserve
And I will give it to you my love
I will never leave
'Cause you're the air I breathe
And you're the heaven
High up above

And this is the way
That a man loves his lady
He does what he can
And he never tells her "maybe"

The world is still turning
But you are not learning
You're letting him
Take what he wants
You give him your loving
Your kissing and hugging
But then he goes back
Where he wants

And you know that it's true
It's all because of you
And now you got
To take back your love
Open up to me
I will make you see
What I have
Is more than enough

And this is the way
That a man loves his lady
He does what he can
And he never tells her "maybe"

I swear to you
I will never let you down
I care about you
From the inside to the out
Let the jokers
Learn a lesson that is true
It's only me
And you from now on

And this is the way
That a man loves his lady
He does what he can
And he never tells her "maybe"
