I only married you for love dear I didn't go for all of your dough
Now and then you say you love me but honey baby it didn't show
I never seemed to please you lately cause all you ever do is complain
I'm sick of this fussin' and fightin' so baby let your loving woman explain.

I'm a lover not a fighter
I kinda like it that way
If you want a fightin' partner
Go live with Cassius Clay.

--- Instrumental ---

A woman is soft and tender and willing to love her man
So why don't you take advantage of the woman that you know I am
I don't want to fuss and fight dear for the rest of my natural life
Stop treatin' me like your enemy start treatin' me like a wife.

I'm a lover not a fighter
I kinda like it that way
If you want a fightin' partner
Go live with Cassius Clay.

I'm a lover not a fighter
I kinda like it that way
If you want a fightin' partner
Go live with Cassius Clay.

I'm a lover not a fighter
I kinda like it that way
If you want a fightin' partner
Go live with Cassius Clay...
