“Can I Get A Witness” by Marvin Gaye Lyrics

Listen everybody (everybody), especially you girls (especially you girls)
Is it right to be left alone
While 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 her 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 tossing 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, let me hear you say, yeah (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

Up early in the morning, with her on my mind
Just to find out all night, that I’ve been cryin’
But I believe, a woman’s a man’s best friend
So I’m gonna stick by her ’til 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
That love can be sad
But I have a love that’s twice as bad
Now all you chicks agree
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?)
Yeah, yeah, yeah (can I get a witness?)
