INFORMATION ABOUT THIS SONG
From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/That's_the_Way_I_Feel_About_Cha
"That's the Way I Feel About Cha" is a 1972 single co-written, produced and recorded by American rhythm and blues/soul music performer, Bobby Womack, and also became the musician's first crossover Top 40 single on the Billboard Hot 100, reaching number 27. On the US Billboard R&B chart it peaked at number two, starting a four-year run of R&B hits for Womack during that decade.

The single, co-written by Womack, John Grisby and Joe Hicks, was the second release off Womack's Communication album. It put Womack on the musical map as a solo artist, after he started his career as lead singer of the family musical group The Valentinos, and a period where he achieved success as a sideman for soul acts such as Aretha Franklin and Wilson Pickett, and rock singers such as Janis Joplin and Sly Stone."...

LYRICS: THAT'S THE WAY I FEEL ABOUT CHA
(composed by Bobby Womack, John Grisby and Joe Hicks)

[Spoken]
Huh, you know life is funny
When you look at it
Everybody wants love
But everybody's afraid of love

You know I'm a true believer
That if you get anything out of life
You've got to put it with
The toils and strife

Now listen,

[Sung]
hooo

You're pushing my love
A little bit too far
I don't think you know
I don't think you know
How blessed you are

And your friend, Annie Mae
Tell you all she see
Have you ever thought
She was trying to get
Close to me, yeah

Think it over
Think it over, girl
Think it over

Look
That's the way I feel about cha
That's the way I feel about cha
And if that's being weak
For you, darling, yeah
I don't mind, I don't mind
I don't mind, I don't mind

That's the way I feel about cha
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
That's the way I feel about cha

I know you been hurt
And so has many others too
But that's a sacrifice
That life puts you through
Puts you through, puts you through

Trust in me, my dear
Have no fear
You don't know but
God might have sent me here
Yeah, sent me here

Think it over
Think it over
You better think it over

Hmm, oh, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah

That's the way I feel about cha
That's the way I feel about cha
Let me say, yeah, yeah
That's the way I feel about cha
Whoa, oh, oh, oh
That's the way I feel about cha

I knew, I knew
You know, you know
You know, you know I

That's the way I feel about cha
Well, that's the way I feel about cha

Please, please
Please answer love if it
Ever comes knocking at your door
'Cause what's out there knocking, baby
The world don't give enough of
Don't give enough of

I know you've been hurt
And so has others too
But all you got to do
Is ask about the changes
That life has put them through

Lord, have mercy
This is just the way it is
Listen
