the spoken intro is truly the highlight of this song smile to answer the question...the original Shirley Brown version (1974) is the one I prefer.
Hello, may I speak to Barbara?
Barbara, this is Shirley
You might not know who I am
But the reason I am calling you is because
I was going through my old man's pockets this morning
And I just happened to find your name and number
So woman to woman
I don't think it's being anymore than fair
Then to call you and let you know where I'm coming from
Now Barbara, I don't know how you're gonna take this
But whether you be cool or come out of a bag on me
You see it doesn't really make any difference
But it's only fair that I let you know that
That the man you're in love with, he's mine
From the top of his head, to the bottom of his feet
The bed he sleeps in and every piece of food he eats
You see, I make it possible
The clothes on his back
Ha ha, I buy them
The car he drives, I pay the note every month
So I'm telling you these things
To let you know how much I love that man
And woman to woman
I think you'll understand just how much I'll do to keep him
