This Is Wisdom

You might own a big house
Drive a fast or big expensive car
Have then servants and a maid
But man
If you don't have a woman to hold in your arms
You don't have nothin

You might be a great hunter
Maybe you caught the biggest fish that ever swam
You can lift a thousand pounds
Or take down five men at once
But man
If you can't hold a woman in your arms
You ain't nothin

Only the great men
Can hold a woman in his arms
Holding her tight against his chest
And take her into his heart

If she should ever leave him
Surely it will hurt him
But nevertheless
He knows in himself
He is one of the great ones
Because he can hold a woman in his arms
If he has a woman to hold in his arms
He knows he's got something
And he don't need nothing else
Because there's nothing greater in this world
then to hold a woman in your arms
And take her into your heart
