When A Man Loves A Woman
Percy Sledge Lyrics


When a man loves a woman
Can't keep his mind on nothing else
He'd change the world
For the good thing he's found
If she's bad, he can't see it
She can do no wrong
Turn his back on his best friend
If he put her down

When a man loves a woman
Spend his very last dime
Trying to hold on to what he needs
He'd give up all his comforts
And sleep out in the rain
If she said that's the way it ought to be

Well, this man loves you, woman
I gave you everything I had
Trying to hold on to your heartless love
Baby, please don't treat me bad

When a man loves a woman
Down deep in his soul
She can bring him such misery
If she plays him for a fool
He's the last one to know
Loving eyes can't ever see

When a man loves a woman
He can do her no wrong
He can never want some other girl

Yes, when a man loves a woman
I know exactly how he feels
'Cause baby, baby, you're my world

When a man loves a woman

If she is bad, he can't see it

Turn his back on his best friend if he put her down

When a man loves a woman
He'll spend his very last dime
Tryin' to hold on to what he needs
He'd give up all his comforts
And sleep out in the rain
If she said that's the way

Well, this man loves you, woman
I gave you everything I had
Tryin' to hold on to your heartless love
Baby, please don't treat me bad

If she is playin' him for a fool
He's the last one to know
Lovin' eyes can never see

When a man loves a woman
He can do her no wrong
He can never want
Some other girl

Yes when a man loves a woman

Cause baby, baby, you're my world

When a man loves a woman...



Mª José C

Cuando un hombre ama a una mujer
No puede mantener su mente en nada más
Cambiaría el mundo
Por algo bueno que ha encontrado
Si ella es mala, él no puede verlo
Ella no puede hacer nada mal
Daría la espalda a su mejor amigo
Si la menospreciara

Cuando un hombre ama a una mujer
Gasta su última moneda
Intentando mantener lo que necesita
Él renunciaría a todo su comfort
Y dormiría afuera bajo la lluvia
Si ella dijera que es la forma
como debe ser

Cuando un hombre ama a una mujer
Te doy todo lo que tengo, sí
Intentando mantener
Tu precioso amor
Nena, por favor no me trates mal

Cuando un hombre ama a una mujer
Profundamente en su alma
Ella puede traerle tanta miseria
Si ella está jugando para engañarlo
Él es el último en saberlo
Los ojos del amor nunca pueden ver

Sí, cuando un hombre ama a una mujer
Yo sé exactamente cómo se siente
Porque nena, nena, nena
Yo soy un hombre
Cuando un hombre ama a una mujer

It's really a shame how this man - arguably the greatest natural tenor soul balladeer of all time - was so underrated by his peers. No Grammy (not even a nomination) no Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The only known singer to attend his funeral was Dorothy Moore. RIP Percy. You will always be a legend to your fans.

@RERE Q RACISM IS A FACT = However. it was not his white peers who didn't honor him by attending his funeral. It was his BLACK peers. Except for Dorithy Moore, NO OTHER known black singer was at his interment.

RERE Q

Please stop saying "he was not appreciated by his peers" That is not true he was a "Black" man and the white man made the decisions. It was RACISM as it still is today. Let's be honest about America and its systemic racism in every area of Black people's lives.
His Black people knew and know of his greatness that is why the song is still going strong today! You will find this song in our art, music used for rap, poems, etc. So let us be honest here. During this time there were many, many actors, singers, harpists, piano players, musicals written, plays, movie scripts..etc. by Black males and females. But they had to FIGHT RACISM and the battle for most was lost.

He who loves one woman has loved them all. He who loves many women has loved none. Old Spanish proverb
