If You Can't Give Her Love (Give Her Up)

This song is by Bobby Womack and appears on the album Facts Of Life (1973).

Haaaah Hah (Bobby laughs)
You gotta learn today to look at things right on -- Ooh yeah (chorus sings)
Black is Black, White is White, that's a proven fact --
And even goes the same -- when it comes down to a woman
The greatest gift god could give man, Me and You
Y'all can understand where I'm comin' from
You've got somebody that you love -- I don't believe in playin' hard to get
For somebody you might already have -- Listen to Me
(Chorus) Ooh

You gotta stop fussin' over the ladies
Beatin' 'em and mistreatin' em
And leaving them with a baby

Ya gotta start them right
Huggin and lovin' and bein real nice

Although at times -- they be tempting
And sometimes they get ya' old and grey
But a woman was made to love
One change in this sound like a sleigh
What I'm tryin' to say, Yaalll

If you can't give her love --
Give her up
And If You can't give her up -- make up your mind -- Oh
Give her up -- or give her her freedom

I don't mean that a woman run wild
And get a job every once in a while -- Ooh
Don't get up -- get her up at home
Cause you don't want to hurt == just leave her alone

There's a lot of men -- I don't know
That would like to be your ---
Who would accept a ready made family
And be the things for ya' woman that you should be doing --

Heeey, Heey

If you can't give her love --
Give her up
And If You can't give her up -- make up your mind -- Oh
Give her up -- or give her her freedom

Oh, Baby -- My, My My, My, My ba-by
