Day 147: “If You Were My Woman” – George Michael

!!!ITALIANO!!!

Today’s song is about 40 years old and this is one of its most beautiful versions; that is no surprise, as it is sung by George Michael, who is technically majestic and has in my opinion one of the best voice timbres of our times.

The track was recorded first time with its original title If I Were Your Woman by Gladys Knight & The Pips and published in the album with the same title by this American group in late 1970, also getting a noticeable success as a single. This wondderful live performance took place in Wembley on 11th june 1988, Nelson Mandela‘s 70th birthday. It was also published as a single.

Lyrics

If you were my woman
And I was your man
There would be no other woman
You’d be weak as a lamb
If you had the strength to walk out that door
My love would overrule my sense I would call you back for more

If you were my woman
If you were my woman
And I was your man, Yeah!

He tears you down darlin’
Says your nothing at all
But I’ll be there for darlin’
When he lets fall
Your like a diamond
But he treats you like glass
Yet you beg him to love you
With me you don’t ask

If you were my woman
If you were my woman
Here’s what I’d do, Oh
I’d never, no, no, no stop lovin’ you
Whoa! Yeah!

My darlin’
Life is so crazy
And love is so unkind
Because he came first, darlin’
Will he make up your mind
Your a part of me
And you don’t even to know it
I’m what you need
But I’m too afraid to show it

If you were my woman
Here’s what I’d do, Oh
I’d never, no, no, no
Whoa! Oh!

My darlin’ If you were my woman
Sweet lovin’ woman
I said
If you were my woman
If you were my woman
I said
If you were my woman
If you were my woman
Here’s what I would do, Oh
I’d never, no, no, no stop lovin’ you
Whoa! Yeah!
Never, never, no
