A woman’s got ways

to make a man lose his mind

So when you ain’t thinking straight

and you’re walking half blind


While she leaves you around

it’s a crime and a pity

but a woman’s got ways yeah

you know, a woman’s got ways…


A woman’s got charms

and a sweet silver voice

but when she gets her hooks in you

boy, you ain’t got much choice…


She’ll treat you tough and your money

and leave you half crazy

but’ll love every minute

cause a woman’s got ways…


A woman’s got something

that every man craves

and it gives her the power

to make us all sclaves


That ‘s the rule of the game, son

you lose if you can’t play

you can’t beat the system, buddy,

cause a woman’s got ways…


When God made woman

he makes fools out of men

when you make one mistake, man

you’ll soon make it again…
