There once was a woman A strange kind of woman The kind that gets written down in history Her name was Nancy Her face was nothing fancy She left a trail of happiness and misery
I loved her Everybody loved her She loved everyone and gave them good return I tried to take her I even tried to break her She said I ain't for takin' won't you ever learn
I want you I need you I gotta be near you I spent my money as I took my turn I want you I need you gotta be near you Ooh I got a strange kind of woman
She looked like a raver But I could never please her On Wednesday mornings boy you can't go far I couldn't get her But things got better, she said Saturday nights from now on baby you're my star
She finally said she loved me I wed her in a hurry No more callers and I glowed with pride I'm dreaming I feel like screaming I won my woman just before she died
I want you I need you I gotta be near you I spent my money as I took my turn I want you I need you I gotta be near you Ooh I had a strange kind of woman
