Foghat — Be My Woman lyrics

Dave Peverett - Riff Bros. Music - ascap

Got no time for me, you say I should forget you, but there ain't no way.

Always too busy working hard, all you give me is your calling card.
I had to talk to you so bad. I tried to tell you 'bout the dreams I had.

But when I call you, you're so cold, everytime you put my love on hold.
Did you call for me? I guess not. Another night that could have been so hot.
I had my heart set right on you. Guess you found some other thing to do.

If you can't love me when you want, love me when you can.
If you can't love me when you want, love me when you can.

Be my woman, be my woman, yeah,
Be my woman, be my woman, yeah.
You got me where you want, baby here I stand - be my woman.

I had to talk to you last night, said you'd be working 'til the broad daylight.
All work and no play, what a drag, you could be riding in my brand new Jag.
When I called you this time, you said you'd come tonight and I felt fine.
But then you rang back, what you say? "Same time, same place, some other day."

If you can't love me when you want, love me when you can.
If you can't love me when you want, love me when you can.

Be my woman, be my woman, yeah,
Be my woman, be my woman, yeah.
You got me where you want, baby here I stand - be my woman.

{Rod - Slide Solo}

I've got the love girl, if you've got the time,
Got some wild ideas, with no reason or rhyme.
If you steal my heart, it'll be alright,
Take it, don't break it, I'll be mad if you don't make it tonight, oh.

If you can't love me when you want, love me when you can,
If you can't love me when you want, love me when you can.
If you can't love me when you want, love me when you can,
If you can't love me when you want, love me when you can.

Be my woman, be my woman, yeah,
Be my woman, be my woman, yeah.
You got me where you want, baby here I stand - be my woman.

Be my woman, yeah! Be my woman, yeah! Be my woman, yeah! Yeah, yeah!
