Listen everybody, especially you girls
You liked to be left alone
By the one you love, never phone

I love to holler
My friends sometimes say
That I believe, I believe
That a woman should love that way

Well it hurts me so inside
I see I treat you so unkind
Somebody somewhere
I tell ya it ain't fair

Can I get a witness?
(Can I get a witness?)
Can I get a witness?
(Can I get a witness?)
I want a witness
(Can I get a witness?)
Everybody

I want a witness
(Can I get a witness?)
Witness, witness
(Can I get a witness?)
Somebody
(Can I get a witness?)
Somewhere
(Can I get a witness?)

Well all you just agree
Said this ain't the way love's supposed to be
Let me hear ya
Let me hear ya say, yeah

I want a witness
(Can I get a witness?)
Get a witness
(Can I get a witness?)
I feel all right
(Can I get a witness?)
One more time
(Can I get a witness?)

Just a one more time
(Can I get a witness?)
A little bit louder, baby
(Can I get a witness?)
A little bit louder
(Can I get a witness?)
Everybody
(Can I get a witness?)

Well it hurts me so inside
To see love to be so unkind
Somebody somewhere
Tell ya, it ain't fair

Up early in the morning
(Can I get a witness?)
With it on my mind
(Can I get a witness?)
Justifyin’
(Can I get a witness?)
And the other [incomprehensible] I've been fine
(Can I get a witness?)

‘Cause you been [Incomprehensible]
(Can I get a witness?)
‘Cause you're lovin' [Incomprehensible] me
(Can I get a witness?)
Love [Incomprehensible] can be something
(Can I get a witness?)
If the love is [Incomprehensible]
(Can I get a witness?)

Well it hurts me so inside
I see I treat you so unkind
Somebody somewhere
I tell ya, it ain't fair

Can I get a witness?
(Can I get a witness?)
I want a witness
(Can I get a witness?)
Everybody
(Can I get a witness?)
Feel all right
(Can I get a witness?)

One more time
(Can I get a witness?)
One more time
(Can I get a witness?)
One more time, baby
(Can I get a witness?)
Everybody

Well all you just agree
Said this ain't the way love's supposed to be
Let me hear ya
Let me hear ya say, yeah

Yeah tonight
