"If I Had A Man"

Sister if I had a man who wouldn't mind to let me down
who'd always treat me like a clown
what would you say

Sister if I loved this man who'd never come to treat me right
who'd always put me through this fright of losing him

what would you do
what would you say
wouldn't you tell me to get rid of him straight away
would you sit back and watch him break my heart
well that's not what I do

Sister if I took him back time after time
and on and on
no matter how he did me wrong
What would you say

what would you do
what would you say
wouldn't you tell me to get rid of him straight away
would you sit back and watch him break my heart
well that's not what I do
that's not what I say
Honey you shouldn't let him play with your heart this way
why won't you listen when I tell you this
Just hear me out honey be strong
no one should hurt you like he does and you know it's wrong
and it breaks my heart to watch him break your heart
you know what to do

sometimes it doesn't work out the way we planned
sometimes we fail
