strange kind of woman lyrics – deep purple

there once was a woman
a strange kind of woman
the kind that gets written down in history

her name was nancy
her face was nothing fancy
she left a trail of happiness and misery

i loved her
everybody loved her
she loved everyone and gave them good return

i tried to take her
i even tried to break her
she said, “i ain’t for takin’ won’t you ever learn”

i want you, i need you, i got to be near you
i spent my money as i took my turn
i want you, i need you, i got to be near you
ooh, i got a strange kind of woman

she looked like a raver
but i could never please her
on wednesday mornings boy, you can’t go far

i couldn’t get her
but things got better, she said
“sat*rday nights from now on baby, you’re my star”

i want you, i need you, i got to be near you
i spent my money as i took my turn
i want you, i need you, i got to be near you
ooh, i got a strange kind of woman

she’s my soul, i love you

i want you, i need you, i got to be near you
i spent my money as i took my turn
i want you, i need you, i got to be near you
ooh, i got a strange kind of woman

she finally said she loved me
i wed her in a hurry
no more callers and i glowed with pride

i’m dreaming
i feel like screaming
i won my woman just before she died

i want you, i need you, i got to be near you
i spent my money as i took my turn
i want you, i need you, i got to be near you
ooh, i got a strange kind of woman

who do you think you are?
superstar
who do you think you are?
superstar
superstar
who do we think we are?
oh my soul, i love you baby
