Lyrics

Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma...

Are you trying to put me on?
I turned around and it was gone
Did I leave it in your car?
On a table in a bar?
Or in your bed between the sheets?
The places where we used to meet
Wherever love has gone I need to know

'Cos she's a woman
Oh yeah baby, she's a woman
Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma
She's a lady
Oh, and I just love the way she moves
The way she moves, yeah
Watch her

When you left
I didn't know how I was going to forget you
I was hanging by a thread and then I met her
Selling pictures of herself to German business men
Well, that's all she wants to do
Come on, come on
I don't want to try too hard
I don't want to wait too long
I don't want to live alone
with all this crap that pulls me down
Oh, tell me now, how would it feel
if I could touch you once again

Where have you gone?
Where have you gone?
The moon has gone down on the sun
Oh yeah. I know that you're coming home
You wouldn't leave me on my own
Everybody can't you see
she's coming back to me

Whilst you were gone
I got along
I didn't die: I carried on
You've got to hold me tight
so I can make it through the night
Stayed in bed all day to feel okay
I felt okay

Oh I felt sick and tired
Yes I did
She lived at her father's place
Played his records
though they jumped
Wore her body back to front
I tried hard to make it work
kissed her where she said it hurt
but I was always underneath

'Cos she's a woman
Oh yeah baby, she's a woman
Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma
She's a lady
Oh, and I just love the way she moves
The way she moves

I don't know why you pretend
that it causes you pain
when you know very well
you're going to do it again
You're going to do it again
You're going to do it again
and again
and again
and again
and again
and again
and keep it going
going all night long!

Ma ma ma ma
Ma ma ma ma...
Shake it, shake it, shake your body, yeah

I know it's going to happen
It might not be today
It might not be tomorrow
or even the day after
But some time soon
you're gonna see
you're gonna
you're gonna
you're gonna
come back to me!

Whilst you were gone
I got along
I didn't die: I carried on
Oh, ma ma ma
Went out drinking every night
just so I could feel alright
Stayed in bed all day to feel okay
I felt okay

Where have you gone?
Where have you gone?
The moon has gone down
gone down on the sun, oh yeah
I know that you're coming home
You wouldn't leave me on my own
Everybody can't you see
she's coming back to me

Where have you gone?
Where have you gone?
No, I didn't die
Oh no, I carried on, yeah, oh oh oh
Working every night
just so I could feel alright
Stayed in bed all day, oh
okay

Whilst you were gone
I got along
I didn't die
I carried on
Oh yeah, I went with other women
What else can I say?
I guess I kind of missed you
whilst you were away
Whilst you were gone

Stop

This extra verse was used in most live versions during '92 and '93:
I felt sick and tired
Yes I did
Moved to the city
Had a kid
Painted faces on a wall
Pretended that my name was Paul
Tried to travel back in time
Did something that never rhymed
Suede trousers with nothing underneath
Owww!
