Ah ah listen to everybody (body)
Especially you girls (girl)
It's not right to be left alone
When the one you love is never home
I loved to hard my friends sometime say
But I believe, I believe
That a woman should be loved that way

But it hurts me so inside
To see you treat me so unkind
Somebody, somewhere tell her it ain't fair

Can I get a witness (can I get a witness)
I want a witness (can I get a witness)
I want a witness (can I get a witness)
Somebody (can I get a witness)

Is it right to be treated so bad
When you give it everything you had
If I talks in my sleep
'Cuz I haven't seen my baby all week

Now you chicks you all agree
This ain't the way it's supposed to be
Let me hear you
Let me hear you say, "yeah yeah"

Up early in the morning
Well they're all in my mind
Just to find her out all night
Well I've been crying

But I believe
A women's a man's best friend
I'm gonna stick by her
'Till the very end

Well she caused me so much misery
I forget how it's supposed to be
Somebody, somewhere
Tell her it ain't fair

Can I get a witness
Can I get a witness (can I get a witness)
I want a witness (can I get a witness)
Witness, witness (can I get a witness)
Witness, witness (can i get a witness)

Everybody knows, especially you girls
That a love can be sad
But half a loves is twice as bad

Now you chicks you all agree
That ain't the way love's supposed to be
Let me hear ya
Let me hear you say "yeah yeah"

I want a witness (can I get a witness)
I want a witness (can I get a witness)
Yeah I want a witness (I want a witness)
Somebody (can I get a witness)

Is it right to be treated so bad
When you give it everything you had
If I talk, in my sleep
'Cuz i haven't seen my baby all week

Yeah she caused me so much misery
That ain't the way it's supposed to be
Let me hear
Let me hear you say "yeah yeah"

I want a witness (can I get a witness)
I want a witness (can I get a witness)
I want be (can I get a witness)
I want a witness (can I get a witness)
Witness, witness
I want a witness
