A woman left lonely will soon grow tired of waiting
She’ll do crazy things, yeah, on lonely occasions
A simple conversation for the new men now and again
Makes a touchy situation when a good face come into your head
And when she gets lonely, she’s thinking about her man
She knows he’s taking her for granted, yeah yeah
Honey, she doesn’t understand, no, no, no, no!
Well, the fevers of the night, they burn an unloved woman
Yeah, those red-hot flames try to push old love aside
A woman left lonely, she’s the victim of her man, yes she is
When he can’t keep up his own way, good Lord
She’s got to do the best that she can, yeah
A woman left lonely, Lord, that lonely girl
Lord, Lord, Lord!
