Do Right Woman, Do Right Man Lyrics - Aretha Franklin

Review The Song (7)

Take me to heart and I’ll always love you

And nobody can make me do wrong

Take me for granted, leaving love unshown

Makes will-power weak and temptation strong


A woman’s only human

You should understand

She’s not just a plaything

She’s flesh and blood just like her man

If you want a do-right-all-day woman

You’ve got to be a do-right-all-night man

They say that it’s a man’s world

Well you can't prove that by me

And as long as we’re together baby

Show some respect for me



Firmness - let's be serious here!


You’ve got to play fair if you want co-operation!

Demanding respect, as a different pace | Reviewer: Aries Dave | 10/23/10

This was the b-side to Franklin's breakthrough Atlantic hit (I Never Loved A Man The Way I Love You) in January 1967.

And something NEW it was. We loved the Motown girls, and continued to, but most of their records came down to 'he's breaking my heart and I don't know what to do-hoo'. One got an entirely different impression with Aretha.

Her songs too often spoke of troubled romances, but when an Aretha record detailed love hitting some rocks, you felt less sad for her, than worried for the guy who was doing her wrong. Even at her most broken-hearted, this was a woman with an unshakeable sense of self-worth, and it came through every time she sang.

What lay ahead was an astonishing string of successes, and if you were lucky, like me, you were just hitting your teen years as Aretha's momentum gathered.

This song leaves you in a trance, having to hear it many times to grasp every word and emotion. All these mainstream and bubblegum music is here and then gone. Ms. Aretha Franklin is all Longevity.

Once and always | Reviewer: Steven | 7/20/08

I listened to this song ALOT when I started dating a friend of mine! Relationships arent always smooth, and can take alot of work, but who says you cant love your job?!

That friend (my best friend) is now my wife ;)

Amazing song.. Played at our reception..

All time favorites | Reviewer: Jasmine | 11/20/07

I discovered Aretha in college and this is one of my all time favorites. Listen to it everyday. In a Sex in the City World, you need to be reminded of the basics to a real relationship. It helps me keep my standards firmly in place.

This is one of my all time favourite Aretha Franklin songs! Which makes it one of my all time favourite ever songs. The message is so true. If a man wants to keep his woman happy he needs to do his part. It's got none of the slightly overdone feel of some Aretha songs it's just pure and clean and straight from the heart. From the greatest female vocalist the planet has ever known.

this song reminds me of the you make me feel like a natural woman if you just listen very close you can sort of strangly hear the natural woman rythem and back up vocals are almost similar that is why i like the song.
