"When A Man Loves A Woman"

Okay, now I'm actually a little scared of myself.  I really should just close YouTube and get on with my life, but there's something about Michael Bolton that pulls me in like a suction.  I. Can't. Get. Enough.
And come on, we all know this song, admit it.

The incredible factor of this song comes with the fact that there really is not a well-defined chorus.  Those 6 words, gave Michael Bolton a Grammy and a number one for U.S. Pop AND Adult Contemporary.  Myself and Lite 98.7 agree, this song can never be outdated.

FM Radio:
Singer: Michael Bolton
Songwriters: Percy Sledge who, like an idiot, gave up the rights to Calvin Lewis and Andrew                  Wright.
Song: "When A Man Loves A Woman"

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

When a man loves a woman
Spend his very last dime
Trying to hold on to what he needs
He'd give up all his comforts
And sleep out in the rain
If she said that's the way
It ought to be

When a man loves a woman
I give you everything i got (yeah)
Trying to hold on
To your precious love
Baby please don't treat me bad

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

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
