    How old are you??

    Older than you 🤬 . I'm not talking about the quality of the production or the singing. However, if you analyze the lyrics, this is some bitchmade 🤬 .

    When a man loves a woman
    Can't keep his mind on nothin' else
    He'd trade the world
    For a good thing he's found


    The 🤬 is out here hella sprung on a 🤬 and his willing to give his 🤬 .

    If she is bad, he can't see it
    She can do no wrong
    Turn his back on his best friend
    If he puts her down


    Punk ass 🤬 stops 🤬 with best friend, (who's probably trying to put him up on game concerning the the ole stank 🤬 ,) but he chooses the ole hoe over his best potna.

    When a man loves a woman
    Spend his very last dime
    Trying to hold on to what he needs


    The 🤬 is so 🤬 whipped, that he's doing some Donald Sterling givin' bitche's Lambos power trickin.

    ]He'd give up all his comforts
    And sleep out in the rain
    If she said that's the way
    It ought to be


    The 🤬 ass 🤬 is going against his better judgments and inconveniencing himself because he calls himself "in love," thinking it will make the 🤬 happy.

    When a man loves a woman
    I give you everything I got (yeah)


    🤬 ass 🤬 out here trying to buy 🤬 off.

    Trying to hold on
    To your precious love
    Baby please don't treat me bad


    [-( Begging and pleading with hoes. [-(

    When a man loves a woman
    Deep down in his soul
    She can bring him such misery
    If she is playing him for a fool
    He's the last one to know
    Loving eyes can never see


    🤬 out 'chere clowin' a 🤬 but he stays 🤬 with her.

    Yes when a man loves a woman
    I know exactly how he feels
    'Cause baby, baby, baby
    I am a man
    When a man loves a woman


    Yet he empathizes with the 🤬 ass 🤬 because he went through the same 🤬 . There's some simptastic songs out there, By The Time I Get to Phoenix, I Miss You, Yesterday, Hey Joe, and Soon as I Get Home From Work comes close, but the simpin' being discussed in "When a Man Loves a Woman is 🤬 epic.

    LOL

    That was a funny ass post but you're an idiot.

    You can do that to almost any old school r&b soul track if you look at it with the mind of Riley from the Boondocks.

    Unlike most people, I actually listen to song lyrics. That's how I've come to the conclusion that most rock songs from the 80's and 90's are about harrion and powder. Case in point Alice in Chains. There entire career was based off the fact that the entire band (e.g. Layne Staley was getting high.) If you listen to the "Dirt" album, the damn entire album (with the exception of is the about day in the life of a dope fiend. From coppin', to gettin' the being content after you shot up, and the complete and utter hopelessness of being an out of control heroin addict. 🤬 is deep. That's one of the reasons why rap and to an certain extent R&B is such ass music nowadays, the 🤬 aren't saying anything in the songs.
