(E. Young)

If your man has got you on the run why don't you try me ?
If you wanna have a little fun, oh baby, why don't you try me ?
If you tote more that you can bear, if your troubles been more than your share
And if things are not going just right why don't you try a man like me tonight ?

Why don't you try me tonight ?
Why don't you try me ?
Why don't you try me tonight ?
Why don't you try me ?

Last night while I was trying to sleep
I heard a racket from the room next door, hum
And that was you and your man havin' a fight
Like you've done so many nights before

"Woman, I'll turn you every which way but loose"
Is what I heard him shout, uh-oh, look out!
So I jumped out of the bed and I opened the door
Just as you came runnin' out

And I hollered: why don't you try me tonight ?
Why don't you try me ?
Why don't you try me tonight ?
Why don't you try me ?

I ain't saying I'm all that you need
And I won't tell you, honey, you will be free
But all night, well, I will keep trying
And when I say I want ya, girl, you know I'm not lyin'
You see a good woman out on the streets these days, friends
Ah, a bad old man can't be hard to find, no, no
Kind of man who'd steal your heart
And call true love a crime

That's why I keep asking ya, baby
Why don't you try me tonight ?
Do yourself a favor
Why don't you try me ?
Regular man ain't treatin' you right
Why don't you try a man like me tonight ?
Why don't you try me ?
Why don't you try a man like me tonight ?
Why don't you try me ?
