The Jackson 5 I Want You Back Lyrics

Last updated: 03/07/2012 10:00:00 AM

Uh-huh huh huh huh
Let me tell ya now
Uh-huh

VERSE 1:
When I had you to myself
I didn't want you around
Those pretty faces always made you stand out in a crowd
But someone picked you from the bunch
one glance was all it took
Now it's much too late for me to take a second look

CHORUS:
Oh baby give me one more chance
(show you that I love you)
Won't you please let me
(BAAACKKKK! in your heart)
Oh darlin' I was BLIND to let you go
(let you go baby)
But now since I see you in his arms
(I want you BAAACKKKK!)
Yes I do now
(I want you BAAACKKKK!)
Ooh ooh baby
(I want you BAAACKKKK!)
Ya ya ya ya
(I want you BAAACKKKK!)
Na na na na

VERSE 2:
Tryin' to live without your love
Is one long sleepless night
Let me show you girl
That I know wrong from right
Every street you walk on
I leave tearstains on the ground
Following the girl
I didn't even want around
Let me tell you now

CHORUS:
Oh baby all I need is one more chance
(show you that I love you)
Won't you please let me
(BAAACKKKK! to your heart)
Oh darlin' I was BLIND to let you go
(let you go baby)
But now since I see you IN HIS ARMS
Uh-huh
A buh buh buh buh (2 times)
All I want
A buh buh buh buh
All I need
A buh buh buh buh
All I want
A buh buh buh buh
All I need

(Jermaine):
Oh just one more chance
to show you that I love you
baby! (6 times)

(I want you BAAACKKKK!)
(Jackie):
Forget what happened then
(I want you BAAACKKKK!)
(Jermaine):
Let me live again

Oh baby I was BLIND to let you go
But now since I see you in his arms
(I want you BAAACKKKK!)
(Jackie):
Spare me of this cause
(Jermaine):
Gimme back what I lost

Oh baby I need one more chance ha
I tell ya that I love you

I want you back | Reviewer: Jennifer | 1/19/2005

This is music from the young Michael Jackson that I remember. Old Motown sound, innocent lyrics.
