Bobby Womack Put Something Down On It

Lordy, Lord

Lordy, Lord

Hmmm Hmmm

[Bobby speaking:]

You know, on my side of town

When you wanted something

you had to put it in will call

And that same thing applies

to anyone that’s looking for love

And that’s why I’m tellin’ you

[Singing:]

If you want my love — baby —

Put something down on it

Put something down on it

I know you’re sad and you’re lonely

But you could use a little time on it

by puttin something down on it

I can tell by the look in your eye

you’ve been hurt by love before

But that’s the price you have to pay

sometime’s life is hard and rough

But you can’t give up.

can’t give up, can’t give up

So, if you want this love un giving, honey

you gotta put something down on it

put something down on it

[background sings:] spend a little time on it

I know you’re sad and you got to be lonely

spend a little time on it

spend a little time on it

Put something down on it

And oooh, sometimes temp is just a little to much

and with a touch a love — how can ya give up

you see the roads of life is hard and rough

You might give in sometime

but you can’t give up —

Whoaaa

[bridge:]

Be with me girl when my chips are down

‘Cause tomorrow the whole thing

done turned around —

And I can remember

you were there — when the chips were down

chips were down

Ohhh!!

If you want my love, honey

put something down it

put something down it

spend a little time on it

All ya gotta do, girl

ohhhh, ohhhh, baby

[background singing:] put something down it

put something down it

spend a little time on it

There’s a thing called love

and it’s has no boundary, right

[background singing:] put something down it

put something down it

spend a little time on it

It’s Gotta be in your heart,

and not just in your mind baby

Ohhh baby

Awwww

You’ll seek, and you shall find

yes you’ll find, yes you’ll find

in time in time

I think I’ll make you my woman

cause I gotta whole lotta time

that I wanna use on it, baby

I like what you do to me girl
