Womack & Womack Love Wars

Love wars

Love wars

Love wars

Love wars

Absence makes the heart grow fonder

But it’s taking me under

Since you’re not here

Oh, and I feel so all alone tonight

It’s better when it’s harder to get

But this hide and go seek

Is making me weep

Oh, we call over now

I promise to stop boxing you round

So don’t scratch my face

End of the eight

Oh, the fight is all over now

We need to get our act together

Take it off the street

Bring it on home and drop them guns on the floor

Love wars (No, we don’t need)

Love wars

The talks we have don’t change a thing

They only bring rain

On top of pain

Oh, it’s raining in my heart now

Flashbacks and uncovered tracks

From when you left

With my best friend

We need to get our act together

Take it off the street

Bring it on home and drop them guns on the floor

Make love and peace

And, baby, never cheat

Vow to be strong and let the band roll on

And stop these

Love wars (We don’t need)

Love wars (Love wars)

Love wars (And be strong now)

Love wars (Ow!)

Love wars (We don’t need)

Love wars (Love wars)

Love wars (Could it be all over now?)

Love wars (Come on back home, darling)

Love bombs explodin’ in air

Until the last one

I don’t care

I remember losing my head

And calling you things

Like dirty names

Oh, and I feel bad about it, baby

We need to get our act together

Take it off the street

Bring it on home and drop them guns on the floor

Make love and peace

And, baby, never cheat

Vow to be strong and let the band roll on

Love wars (No!)

Love wars (We can’t stand, no)

Love wars (Just come on out)

Love wars (I don’t want no love wars)

Womack & Womack Baby I’m Scared Of You

Come, if you got real love for me

Stay away, if got games and tricks for me

I wanna man that means everything he say

And not a boy full of play

Pulling rabbits out of his hat everyday

Oh, baby I’m scared of you

I… I don’t believe in magic (magic)

I believe in love everlasting

I can’t understand that

Houdini, Houdini, was great magician

He could crack a lock, from any position

But my heart, is nothing like those locks

And your falling last of my brand of stock

Like little red riding hood, you’re the fox

Oh baby I’m scared of you

I… I don’t believe in magic

I believe (I believe) in love ever lasting

I… I don’t believe in magic

I believe (I believe) in love ever lasting

Don’t go pulling no rabbits out your hat

It’ll be all I want from that

Baby now I can’t go for that

I can’t understand that baby (naw naw)

I can’t understand that baby

You ain’t no Houdini

Ah, I know I ain’t

I can’t understand that baby

Oh, like Rudolph Valentino

I can fall down on my knees

Pull flowers out my sleeve

Because I know you will be pleased, I wonder

I can’t understand that baby

I can’t understand that

Look, I can pull flowers out my hat

Do a disappearing act

Come back on you so strong

Girl I really turn your loving on, I wonder

I can’t understand that baby

I can’t understand that

I need a man

I’m available

Mean everything he say

Don’t need a boy full of games and tricks everyday

I can’t understand that baby (naw naw)

I can’t understand that

Womack & Womack Slave

He loved you, oh yes, he needed you

He gave it all he had, for just one woman

He will sacrifice for you, just to make your dreams come true, only for you

Cold love, he died for you

Overworked in sweat for you

He fell sick, broke in two

You held the keys to set him free

Chains of love to misery

Everyday for you he craved

But you never came to save

He was your slave, he was your slave

Love took him to his grave

For you he slaved

Material gain was not his thing

But he worked three jobs just to bring

You three diamond rings

But, for it wasn’t enough

He turned crook, and life turned rough

From bad to worse

Oh, then they hauled him off to jail

Locked him away in a lonely cell

Without his love, he did his time

Died there with you in his mind

He was your slave, he was your slave

Love took him to his grave

For you he slaved

His woman’s dialogue

And if I had to do, all over again

I’d take him in my arms, and love him like a friend

Since he’s been gone, for his love I crave

I ain’t too proud to say, for this love I’ll slave

I tried… (he tried)… we tried

The love died

I ain’t too proud to say, for his love I’ll slave

Since he’s been gone, for his love I crave

Womack & Womack Friends

A man needs to know

Who will shine the light for him

When his way is dark and dim

But he turned to them

They turned their backs on him

This is all I can remember him saying

I remember…

Where are all of my so called friends?

They don’t hang around me anymore

Where are all of my so called friends?

They don’t hang around me anymore

We used to run around together in the same circle

Now we each have a corner, and the circle’s a square

Expectations, that I just could not fulfill

More was expected than one man could give

But I wanna know…

Where are all of my so called friends?

They don’t hang around me anymore

I wanna know, where are all of my so called friends?

They don’t hang around me anymore

Expectations, that I just could not fulfill

More was expected than one man could give

My woman, she moved away from here

I wonder if she ever really loved me

And if she ever cared

I wanna know…

Where are all of my so called friends?

They seem to want me around anymore

Where are all of my so called friends?

They seem to want me around anymore

I wanna know… Friends!

Yeah… Friends… Have turned their back on me

Friends…

I wanna know…

Yeah…

Womack & Womack Teardrops

Whenever I hear goodbyes

Remind me baby of you

I break down and cry

Next time I’ll be true, yeah

Fever for lost romance

Remind me baby of you

I took a crazy chance

Next time I’ll be true

I’ll be true, I’ll be true

Footsteps on the dance floor

Remind me baby of you

Teardrops in my eyes

Next time I’ll be true, yeah

Whispers in the powder room

“She cries on every tune

Every tune, every tune”

When I’m dancin’ ’round

Remind me baby of you

I really let you down

Next time I’ll be true, yeah

I took a crazy chance

“She cries on every tune

Every tune, every tune”

Footsteps on the dance floor

Remind me baby of you

Teardrops in my eyes

Next time I’ll be true, yeah

Whispers in the powder room

“She cries on every tune

Every tune, every tune”

And the music don’t feel like it did when I felt it with you

Nothing that I do or feel ever feels like I felt it with you

Hurting deep inside

She cries on every tune

I break down and cry

“She cries on every tune

Every tune, every tune”

Footsteps on the dance floor

Remind me baby of you

Teardrops in my eyes

Next time I’ll be true, yeah

Whispers in the powder room

“She cries on every tune

Every tune, every tune”

Footsteps on the dance floor

Remind me baby of you

Teardrops in my eyes

Next time I’ll be true, yeah

Whispers in the powder room

“She cries on every tune

Every tune, every tune”

Womack & Womack T.K.O.

Lookin’ back over my years

I guessed, I’ve shedded some tears

Told myself time and time again

This time I’m gonna win

But another fight, things ain’t right

I’m losin’ again

Takes a fool to lose twice

And start all over again

Think I’d better let it go

Looks like another love T.K.O…

Think I’d better let it go (what you think about it, girl), let it go, baby (oh, yeah)

Looks like another love T.K.O…

Tried to take control of the love

Love took control of me

‘Cause you lose all thoughts, sense of time

And have a change of mind

Takin’ the bumps and the bruises

Of all the things of a two-time loser

Tryin’ to hold on, faith is gone

It’s just another sad song

I think I’d better let it go (what you say about it?)

Looks like another love T.K.O…

I think I’d better let it go, let it go, baby (oh, baby)

Looks like another love T.K.O…

Tried to take control of the love

Love took control of me

‘Cause you lose all thoughts, sense of time

And have a change of mind

Takin’ the bumps and the bruises

Of all the things of a two-time loser

See I try to hold on, my faith is gone

It’s just another sad song

And I think I’d better let it go (let it go, let it go)

Looks like another love T.K.O. (I think I’d better)

Think I’d better let it go, let it go, baby (if I know what’s good for you, girl)

Looks like another love T.K.O. (I couldn’t stand this pain much longer)

Think I’d better let it go, let it go, baby…

Looks like another love T.K.O…

(Oh, sometimes, sometimes I just feel like I wanna say)

(I wanna say…)

‘Cause it looks like another love T.K.O.

(Tired of gettin’ beat up by love)

Think I’d better let it go, let it go, baby (before it’s too late, yeah)

Looks like another love T.K.O…

Think I’d better let it go (yeah)

Looks like another love T.K.O. (hey, yeah, whoa, I think I’d better)

Think I’d better let it go (let it go), let it go, baby (oh, yeah)

Looks like another (yeah) love T.K.O.

(Oh, they say love is better the second time around)

Think I’d better let it go (I can’t stand on my feet)

Looks like another love T.K.O. (I’m falling down, no, ’cause, ’cause, ’cause)

I think I’d better let it go (let it go, baby)

Womack & Womack MPB

Why can’t I talk to her?

They tell me she’s not around

Tried a message to her

They tell me she’s not in town

She would not check out this way

Oh, it’s been seven lonely days

This morning I jumped straight up

And called Missing Persons Bureau

I lost my love

Missing Persons Bureau

I lost my love

Rumours going round this town

She’s out running round

Been seen with my very best friend

I can’t believe it’s him

I think she’s been kidnapped and held back

By some crazy maniac

This morning I jumped straight up

And called Missing Persons Bureau

I lost my love

Missing Persons Bureau

I lost my love
