Men
Gladys Knight Lyrics


I was talking to my girlfriend just the other day
I was not a bit surprised at what she had to say
On the subject of love we both were disillusioned
All day long we tried to find some kind of a solution

She said, "I'm tired of all that cheatin' and lyin'
Men won't change so I'm just gonna give up tryin'"
I said, "I feel the same way, too, but I
Can't give up so I don't know what to do"

I tell you, men
Can't live with 'em but you can't live without 'em
What can you do about 'em?
I tell you, men
Can't live with 'em but you can't live without 'em
I say we got a problem (oh, whoa)

Said, I know
I said we oughta tell them about their evil ways
I know they'll get defensive then turn around and say
"We're not alone out here 'cause women do it, too"
I said, "two wrongs don't make it right, they pay the price like you do"

She said, "uh-huh, I'm tired of all this cheatin' and lyin'
Men won't change so I'm just gonna give up tryin'"
I said, "I feel the same way, too, but I
Can't give up so I don't know what to do"

I tell you, men
Can't live with 'em but you can't live without 'em
What can you do about 'em?
I tell you, men
Can't live with 'em but you can't live without 'em
I know we got a problem

I tell you, men
Can't live with 'em but you can't live without 'em
What can you do about 'em?
I tell you, men
Can't live with 'em but you can't live without 'em
I know we got a problem

I hope that there's a man somewhere who knows that love's a treasure
But the only ones I've met so far has used this love for pleasure
They don't make commitments, they say "come deal with me"
But I don't want to buy his love with my prerogative

I really want to love you
But I can't accept the way you do the things you do, men
Can't live, can't live, can't live without 'em
Oh men, can't live, oh live
Oh, I know we got a problem I'll tell you, men
Can't live with 'em but you can't live without 'em
What can you do about 'em
I'll tell you, men
Can't live with 'em but you can't live without 'em
What can we do about 'em?
(Whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa, whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa)
(Whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa, whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa)
(Whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa, whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa) I just don't know what to do about 'em
Men, can't live with 'em
But you can't live without 'em
No, what can we do about 'em?
I tell you, men

GOD'S PROPERTY

"She said, I'm tired of all this cheatin and lyin." Gon' Ms. Gladys! One of the greatest soulful ever! She is the QUEEN OF SOUL to me. No disrespect Ms. Franklin.

monica bella

Ecremmin Mrs. Franklin had to take a deep bow !

rocio silva vega

yo llegue a ver este vídeo por Denise, aun que esta es la original, es buena, pero el cover que hizo Denise también es bueno para esta epoca

80's dance music & more

El cover de Denise Rosentahl es una porquería. Y su video es ridículo.

Johnny Greg

The empress of Soul

Calamity JANE

Yes indeed!!

I feel like this was every 90's music video setup

Marcus Carrington

I know right? No shade to all the wonderful 80s soul singers, but it seemed like a lot of them wanted to kick off the 90s by showing how hip and edgy they could be with these uptempo dance numbers and they all tended to go for the same aesthetic when it came to the accompanying music video. Vesta did it with "Do Ya," Howard Hewett did it with "Save Your Sex For Me," friggin' PHYLLIS HYMAN did it with "Don't Wanna Change The World," and that's just three I named off the top of my head.

I forgot Marsha Warfield was in this...:P

Spirit Angelfish

FaytLinegod looking like Queen Latifah from her first album!
