“Ain’t No Woman Like the One I’ve Got”

The other day, Dennis Prager played a clip of this song from 1972. It’s called “Ain’t No Woman Like the One I’ve Got” and sung by the Four Tops. I listened to it when I was in high school and loved it! (Listen to it. You’ll like it, too!) It made me think how many men would absolutely LOVE to have a woman like this one. She doesn’t ask for things, no, not even diamond rings and it doesn’t take much to make her happy. She’s a content, joyful, and smiling woman. And this is going to be hard to believe but she obeys him! Oh, if we all could become wives like this woman. Can you imagine a song like this being played on the radio today? No.

Every day the sun comes up around her.
She can make the birds sing harmony.
Every drop of rain is glad it found her.
Heaven must have made her just for me.
When she smiles so warm and tender,
A sight for sore eyes to see.

Oooh, ain’t no woman like the one I’ve got.
Oh, no, they don’t come better.
To make her happy doesn’t take a lot.
She don’t ask for things, no diamond rings.
So together, like a hand in glove.
Like pages in a letter.

Ain’t no woman like the one I love.
She can fill me up when it’s down I’m goin’ (I’m goin’).
Put a little music in my day.
Wouldn’t be surprised if my love keeps growin’ (it keeps growin’).
Bigger every minute that she stays away.
I would kiss the ground she walks on,
Cause it’s my word, my word she’ll obey, now.

Woo-ooh. Ain’t no woman like the one I’ve got.
Well, I kiss the ground she walks on.
To make her happy doesn’t take a lot.
She’s a real good friend right to the end.
So together like a hand in glove.
A lonely man when she’s gone.
People, ain’t no woman like the one I love.

Oooh. What a good, good thing I’ve got.
She means to me a lot.
No, no, they don’t come better.
To make her happy doesn’t take a lot.
She don’t ask for things, no diamond rings.
So together, like a hand in glove.
Like pages in a letter.
Ain’t no woman like the one I love, people.
Well, I kiss the ground she walks on.
To make her happy doesn’t take a lot.
I’m a lonely man when my baby’s gone.

 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
Proverbs 31:10-12

  1. Hi Lori, I heard this song way back in my high school days as well, and I really loved it, too. You’re right, however, about the message of the song not being very popular today with the feminist culture entrenched in women’s minds. A few months ago, nonetheless, I heard this song being piped over the speaker system while shopping in Walmart! I was quite shocked and excited to hear it being played for every woman shopping there to hear. Hopefully it helped impulsive women shoppers to obey their husbands while browsing down the aisles!😉

  2. Oh I love this song and brings back memories of my early teens. No songs like this would never be written today. Now Lori, I’m going to have this song stuck in my head all day. LOL!

  3. Great song! Big hit for them. ‘ One lyric says, ‘Iys my word, my word she’ll obey now. Another says, ‘Ill kiss the ground she walks on’. It equals out to be, ‘all about love’!

  4. Love this song too!!! There’s a movie with Danny Glover where they play this song in the beginning. Think it’s a Christmas movie. I just added the song to my amazon music playlist! Lol!
