The song that you're thinking of is Want Ads by girl group Honey Cone. Want Ads was released in Spring 1971 as the first single from the album Soul Tapestry, and reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and the R&B Singles Chart.
The lyrics you refer to are from the first verse of the song, and are as follows:

Wanted, young man single and free
Experience in love preferred,
But will accept a young trainee
Oh I'm gonna put it in the want ads,
I need a love that's true
Gonna put it in the want ads, my man and I are through
