A woman left lonely will soon grow tired of waiting,
She'll do crazy things, yeah, on lonely occasions
A simple conversation with a new man now and again
Makes a touchy situation when a good things comin' to an end
And when she gets lonely, she's thinking 'bout her man,
She knows he's taking her for granted, yeah yeah,
Honey, she doesn't understand, no no no no!
Well, the fevers of the night, they burn an unloved woman
Yeah, those red-hot flames try to push old love aside
A woman left lonely, she's the victim of her man, yes she is
When he can't keep up his own way, good Lord,
She's got to do the best that she can, yeah!
A woman left lonely, Lord, that lonely girl,
Lord, Lord, Lord!
