    The "him" seems more appropriate for the Gloria Gaynor version.
    Yeah, that does seem strange. But maybe the lyrics are saying the girl is with someone new and he can't let her go?

    Man of my heart, I love you so
    Lately I've found you on my mind
    More than you know

    Whether you're right
    Whether you're wrong
    Man of my heart, I'll string along
    I need you so
    More than you'll ever know

    Loving you the way that I do
    There's nothing I can do about it
    Loving may be all you can give
    But darling, I can't live without it

    Nope.

    The idea is there's a voice / feeling the singer has telling the singer to "turn around, you fool . . . You know you love" that person the singer has been in a relationship with "more and more".

    It was probably a slip-up on the part of wherever you got the lyrics from since there have been both males and females that have charted with that song.

    Anyway, . . .

    "Well, I can't forget this evenin'
    And your face when you were leavin'
    But I guess that's just the way the story goes
    You always smile, but in your eyes your sorrow shows
    Yes, it shows

    Well, I can't forget tomorrow
    When I think of all my sorrow
    I had you there, then I let you go
    And now it's only fair that I should let you know
    What you should know

    I can't live if livin' is without you
    I can't live, I can't give anymore
    I can't live if livin' is without you
    I can't live, I can't give anymore"

    Do you hear the people sing?
    Singing a song of angry men?
    It is the music of a people
    Who will not be slaves again!
    When the beating of your heart
    Echoes the beating of the drums
    There is a life about to start
    When tomorrow comes!

    Will you join in our crusade?
    Who will be strong and stand with me?
    Beyond the barricade
    Is there a world you long to see?
    Then join in the fight
    That will give you the right to be free!

    I went back and checked and found the same mistake in several sites! Maybe one got it wrong and the others followed along

    The AZLyrics.com site doesn't have that problem. For the Jackson 5 version they have "her" while the Gloria Gaynor version has "him".

    genius.com also has "her" and "him" depending on the artist.

    There's a place in the world for the angry young man
    With his working class ties and his radical plans
    He refuses to bend, he refuses to crawl
    He's always at home with his back to the wall
    And he's proud of his scars and the battles he's lost
    And he struggles and bleeds as he hangs on the cross
    And he likes to be known as the angry young man

    "When you're a Jet,
    You're a Jet all the way
    From your first cigarette
    To your last dyin' day.

    When you're a Jet,
    If the spit hits the fan,
    You got brothers around,
    You're a family man.

    You're never alone,
    You're never disconnected.
    You're home with your own—
    When company's expected,
    You're well protected!"

    Leavin' home, out on the road
    I've been down before
    Ridin' along in this big ol' jet plane
    I've been thinkin' about my home
    But my love light seems so far away
    And I feel like it's all been done
    Somebody's tryin' to make me stay
    You know I've got to be movin' on

    Oh, Oh big ol' jet airliner
    Don't carry me too far away
    Oh, Oh big ol' jet airliner
    Cause it's here that I've got to stay

    The long and winding road
    That leads to your door
    Will never disappear
    I've seen that road before
    It always leads me here
    Lead me to you door

    The wild and windy night
    That the rain washed away
    Has left a pool of tears
    Crying for the day
    Why leave me standing here?
    Let me know the way

    Many times I've been alone
    And many times I've cried
    Anyway, you'll never know
    The many ways I've tried

    Midnight one more night without sleeping
    Watching 'til that morning comes creeping
    Green Door what's that secret your keeping?

    There's an old piano and they play it hot behind the green door (Green door)
    Don't know what they're doing but they laugh a lot behind the green door (Ooh, green door)
    Wish they'd let me in so I could find out what's behind the green door (Green door)

    Knocked once tried to tell 'em I'd been there
    Door slammed hospitality's thin there
    Wondering just what's going on in there

    It's nine o'clock on a Saturday
    The regular crowd shuffles in
    There's an old man sitting next to me
    Making love to his tonic and gin

    He says, "Son can you play me a memory
    I'm not really sure how it goes
    But it's sad and it's sweet
    And I knew it complete
    When I wore a younger man's clothes."

    Sing us a song you're the piano man
    Sing us a song tonight
    Well we're all in the mood for a melody
    And you've got us feeling alright

    My old man's a drunker than a barrel full of monkeys
    And my old lady she don't care
    My sister looks cute in her braces and boots
    A handful of grease in her hair

    Oh, don't give us none of your aggravation
    We had it with your discipline
    Oh, Saturday night's alright for fighting
    Get a little action in
    Get about as oiled as a diesel train
    Gonna set this dance alight
    'Cause Saturday night's the night I like
    Saturday night's alright, alright, alright, ooh
