a woman, a lover, a friend lyrics – jackie wilson

i want somebody to hold my hand
somebody to love me and understand
i want a woman (woman)
i want a lover (a lover)
i want a friend (a woman, a lover, a friend)

mmm, i want somebody to share my love
yes, loving is something i’ve got plenty of
i want a woman (woman)
i want a lover (a lover)
i want a friend (a woman, a lover, a friend) ah-ahh

i don’t want a fancy gal
with powder and paint
and i don’t want a woman

who thinks she’s a saint
i’m looking for someone
who’s not make-believe
and doesn’t mind giving so that she may receive

there must be somebody somewhere around
that’s looking for someone to give pound for pound
i want me a woman (woman)
mmm, i want a lover (a lover)
i want a friend (a woman, a lover, a friend)

yeah i want her right now
i want my little girl anyway, i want her anyhow
please come on, baby
just be my little woman, be my lover
