Nobody feels any pain
Tonight as i stand inside the rain
Everybody knows
That baby's got new clothes
But lately i see her ribbons an' her bows
Have fallen from her curls.
She takes just like a woman, yes she does
She makes love just like a woman, yes she does
An' she aches just like a woman
But she breaks just like a little girl.

Queen Mary she's my friend
Yes, i believe i'll go see her again
Nobody has to guess
That baby can't be blessed
Till she finally sees that she's like all the rest
With her fog, her amphetamine an' her pearls.
She takes just like a woman, yes
She makes love just like a woman, yes she does
And she aches just like a woman
But she breaks just like a little girl.

It was rainin' from the first
An' i was dyin' there of thirst
So i came in here
An' your long time curse hurts
But what's worse
Is this pain in here
I can't stay in here
Ain't it clear that...

I just can't fit
Yes i believe it's time for us to quit
An' when we meet again
Introduced as friends
Please don't let on that ya knew me when
I was hungry an' it was your world.
Ah you fake just like a woman, yes you do
You make love just like a woman, yes you do
Then you ache just like a woman
But you break just like a little girl.  up

  Blonde on Blonde session 11, Columbia Music Row Studios, Nashville TN - 8.mar.1966, take 1  

What's the name of it, Bob? Uh, "Like a woman"

I can't complain
Tonight as i walk inside the rain
Everybody knows
That honey's got new clothes
But lately i see her ribbons an' her bows
Have fallen from her curls
And you shake like a woman
Yes you fake just like a woman
An' you ache just like a woman
But you break just like a little girl.

Now aunt Annie she's my friend
Yes i believe i'll go see her again
Risin' ... in her dream
Her fog an' amphetamine
Till finally i see just how she schemes
When i gave you those pearls
And you take just like a woman
Yes you shake just like a woman
Yes then you ache just like a woman
But you break just like a little girl.

Angel find me dark and this is
... in there
Your long time walk to find home
But there's no pain in there
Ain't it there and i...

And i just don't fit
Yes i believe it's time for us to quit
Open up your door
You did it the day before
Don't let down like you did it before
I must go out into the world
And you... and you fake just like a woman, yes
You make, yes you do, just like a woman
And you ache just like a woman
But you break just like a little girl.  up

  Blonde on Blonde session 11, Columbia Music Row Studios, Nashville TN - 8.mar.1966, take 4  

Well i, i feel no pain
Tonight as i'm standin' out in the rain
Everybody knows
Honey's got new clothes
But lately i see her ribbons an' her bows
Have fallen from her curls.
Oh you wake like a woman
Yes you shake like a woman
Yes you ache like a woman
But you break just like a little girl.

Well aunt Annie, Annie she's my friend
I believe i'll go see her once again
She don't bother me
An' that the way i expect to be
But why do you show all these things to see
It was me who gave you those pearls.
Oh you take like a woman
Yes you shake like a woman
And you ache like a woman
But you break just like a little girl.

Well, anybody can see that
That she don't let it dream in here
Well, the dead man's curse is worse
But (purse?), you know that
There's a pain in here
I can't stay in here
Ain't it clear that i just...

Don't seem to fit
Yes i believe, i believe that we must quit
But when we meet again
An' are introduced to each other as friends
Don't let me down and say you knew me when
I was hungry in the world.
Well you wake like a woman
Yes you shake like a woman
You ache like a woman
But you break just like a little girl.

...

You take like a woman
An' you ache like a woman
But you break just like a little girl.  up

Nobody can complain
Tonight as i stand inside the rain
Everybody knows
That baby's got new clothes
But lately i see her ribbons an' her bows
Have fallen from her curls.
She wakes just like a woman, yes
Then she makes the step just like a woman, yes
Then she aches just like a woman

Queen Mary she's my friend
Yes i believe i'll go see her again

I just can't fit
Yes i believe it's time for us to quit
But when we meet again

You ache just like a woman, yes
You take just like a woman
Well you ache just like a woman
But you break just like a little girl.

...

Well you take like a woman
You mistake just like a woman
Then you ache just like a woman
But you break just like a little girl.  up
