Marvin Gaye You're All I Need To Get By Lyrics

Last updated: 09/01/2011 11:00:00 AM

You're all I need to get by.
Like the sweet morning dew, I took one look at you,
And it was plain to see,
you were my destiny. With my arms open wide,
I threw away my pride
I'll sacrifice for you
Dedicate my life to you
I will go where you lead
Always there in time of need
And when I lose my will
You'll be there to push me up the hill
There's no, no looking back for us
We got love sure 'nough, that's enough
You're all, You're All I need to get by.


You're all I need to get by.
Like an eagle protects his nest, for you I'll do my best,
Stand by you like a tree, dare anybody to try and move me
Darling in you I found
Strength where I was torn down
Don't know what's in store but together we can open any door
Just to do what's good for you and inspire you a little higher
I know you can make a man out of a soul that didn't have a goal
Cause we, we got the right foundation and with love and determination

You're all, you're all I want to strive for and do a little more
You're all, all the joys under the sun wrapped up into one
You're all, You're all I need to get by.

This song tops them all with the sweet voice of Tammi Terrell and stunning voice of Marvin Gaye is unbelievable and can never be duplicated because so much soul was put into it. There will never be a duet like this again.



Stunning and heartrending vocals | Reviewer: Ruth Owen | 8/16/09

This duet by The late Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell speaks from the soul to the soul.The lyrics are superb in their conveyance of utter devotion and a selfless wish to do the best for each other.The sheer rapture in the words, 'All the joys under the sun wrapped up into one,' epitomises their love for each other. This duet topped all others whenit was released in 1968 and continues to do so in 2009. Sheer genius in both lyrics and performance.
