Janis Joplin – A Woman Left Lonely lyrics

A woman left lonely
Will soon grow tired of waiting
She'll do crazy things, yeah
On lonely occasions

A simple conversation
With a new man now and again
Makes a touchy situation
When her good thing is coming to an end.

And when she gets lonely
She's thinking of her man
She knows he's taking her for granted
And she doesn't understand, no no no no

Oh the fevers of the night
They burn the unloved woman
Yeah those red-hot flames
Try to push old love aside

A woman left lonely
Just the victim of her man, yes she is
When he can't keep up his homework, no!
She's got to do the best she can, yeah!

A woman left lonely!
Oh what a lonely girl!
Lord, lord, lord!
