WANTON WOMEN ~ LYRICS: GREGOR RICE AKA JOULES LAHAE @ BROADJAM © 1981

[I uploaded one of Mom's hit songs Ruth Gregor @ Bjam re: couldn't figure out how to upload lyrics only, so here it is!]

These are truly all-time, hit pop/standard lyrics in said format w/fun word play to boot.

A:
Wonton Women
Know no lover
They keep their feelings
Undercover
Lord, have mercy
When they're only wantin' love

A:
Wantin' women
Ends in sadness
For lonely men who
Crave it's madness
Lord, have mercy
When they're only wantin' love

B:
People want
People need
People searchin'
Til they bleed
Lonely, achin' so mistaken
Over the things they take for love
Lord, what they still mistake for love

A:
Want in women
Leaves them heartache
When they only
Want for want's sake
Lord, have mercy
When they're only wantin' love

Tag/out:
Lord, have mercy
When they're only wantin' love

Rit. acapel. & back in
Lord, have mercy
When they're only wantin' love

A: alternate verse or add on for another A/B
Want 'n' [&] women
Passion's fire
Bleeding men who
Never tire
Lord, have mercy
When they're only wantin' love
