Can I Get A Witness – Marvin Gaye!

Ah listen everybody (everybody), especially you girls (especially you girls),
is it right to be left alone by the one you love is never home.
I love too hard, my friends sometimes say,
but I believe, I believe, that a woman should be loved that way.
But it hurts me so inside, to see how you treat me so unkind,
somebody, somewhere, tell her it’s unfair – Can I get a witness?

(Can I get a witness) Can I get a witness?
(Can I get a witness) Can I get a witness?
(Can I get a witness) Somebody (Can I get a witness).
Is it right to be treated so bad, when you’ve given everything you had,
even tossin’ in my sleep, ’cause I haven’t seen my baby all week.
Now you chicks do agree, that this ain’t the way love’s supposed to be,
let me hear you, let me hear you say yeah, (yeah, yeah, yeah) yeah (yeah, yeah, yeah).

Up early in the morning, with her on my mind,
took to find it out all night that I been cryin’.
But I believe, a woman’s a man’s best friend,
so I’m gonna stick by her, till the very end.
But she cause so much misery that I forget how love is supposed to be,
somebody, somewhere, tell her it ain’t fair – Can I get a witness? Can I get a witness?

(Can I get a witness) I want a witness.
(Can I get a witness) Witness, witness.
(Can I get a witness) Witness, witness (Can I get a witness).
Everybody knows, especially you girls,
how love can be sad but half of love is twice as bad.
Now all you chicks agree (oh-oh-oh-oh) that this ain’t the way it’s supposed to be.
Let me hear you, let me hear you say yeah, yeah, yeah

I want a witness, I want a witness,
come on witness (Can I get a witness).
I want a witness (Can I get a witness),
just a little bit louder (Can I get a witness),
louder (Can I get a witness)
