Make Me The Woman That You Go Home To
Gladys Knight & The Pips Lyrics


You promised me
Things that meant a lot
Said so much you
Just up and forgot
What you said
To me, about me

You said I was your strength
The air you breathe
So help me, honey
You're all I need to
Make my life complete
Oh, yes, you did

So then
(Why, why don't you)
Why don't you, baby
(Make her the woman
You go home to)
Make me the woman
You go home to

And not the one
You leave behind
(Make her the woman
You go home to)
Not the one you left to cry
(Make her the woman
You go home to)

With a smile
I fix your evening meals
Iron your clothes
It ain't no big deal
It's all a part of loving you
(Loving you, yes, it is)

Stand by your side
Through thick and thin
Not laying awake to
Ask where you been
Cause you'd tell me
If you wanted to
(If you wanted to)
Oh, yeah

(Why, why don't you)
Why don't you, baby
(Make her the woman
You go home to)
Make me the woman
You go home to

And not the one
You leave behind
(Make her the woman
You go home to)
Not that one that's
Left to cry and cry
(Make her the woman
You go home to)

(Make her the woman
You go home to) you
Make me the woman
(Make her the woman
You go home to)
You go home to

Make me yours and
You'll be mine to keep
So full of joy, you wouldn't
Need to be on the
Other side of town
Fooling around

So (why, why don't you)
Why, why, why
Good God almighty, boy
(Make her the woman
You go home to)

And not that one
That you leave behind
(Make her the woman
You go home to)
Not the one that's
Left to cry and cry
(Make her the woman
You go home to)...

I don't, I don't
I don't know what you want
Make me your woman, oh, baby...

The best female vocal performance EVER. I have loved this for nearly 50 years. Gladys astonishes!

PamBeforetheStorm

This song, I 1st heard as a child. I never forgot it and ran thru my memory as an adult, only remembering a couple lines. When I found it again, I cried. Gladys is a Legend for all her beautiful songs!!! I listen all the time now!!! β€πŸ‘‘β€πŸ‘‘β€

John Brocklehurst

The greatest female vocal act to ever cross the threshold of Hitsville U.S.A.

Betty Nobles

I agree. Berry Gordy was so engulfed with an infatuation for Diana Ross that he lost out when Gladys Knight and the Pips said enough is enough and left to find their place with Budda and Capitol Records.

@Midwest Slot Diva I would have to say MARTHA REEVES was better than Tammi, Teena and Florence. But I also agree that GLADYS was the best female vocalist they ever had. DIANA ROSS was also quite unique and gifted, she's never gotten the credit for her amazing vocals that she deserves. Diana is underrated because she didn't have a Churchy voice. It's hilarious that Motown rejected Aretha Franklin and later regretted it.

Midwest Slot Diva

Her, Tammi Terrell and Teena Marie. And given half a chance that the scarecrow Ross had.... Florence Ballard. She could blow

Yesssss girl..... Gladys always speaks to my heart strings #imaoldsoul

Classic Gladys and the Pips! RIH Brothers! My Jam here! One of my favs by them! Make me yours and you'll be mine to keep, So full of joy, you wouldn't need to be, On the other side of town, Fooling around, Total acceptance is all you get, Knowing this, you will never regret, Finding yourself all around. . Love them! Much Love!
