"And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" as written by Henry D. Krieger and Tom Eyen....
...And I am telling you
I'm not going.
You're the best man I'll ever know.
There's no way I could ever go.
No, no, there's no way...
No, no, no, no way I'm living without you.
I'm not living without you--
I don't wanna be free.
I'm staying!
I'm staying!
And you, and you...
You're gonna love me.
You're gonna love me!

And I am telling you
I'm not going.
Even though the rough times are showing
There's just no way...there's no way!
We're part of the same place.
We're part of the same time.
We both share the same blood.
We both have the same mind.

And time to time we've had so much to share.
No, no, no, no, no, no!
I'm not waking up tomorrow morning, uh-uh,
And finding that there's nobody there!
Darlin', there's no way
No, no, no, no way I'm living without you.
I'm not living without you.
You see, there's just no way
There's no way!

(Please don't go away from me...
Stay with me! Stay with me!!
Stay, stay and hold me...
Stay, stay and hold me...
Please, hold me--I know you can!
Try it, mister...try it mister!
I know, I know, I know, I know, oh, yes, I know you can...)

Tear down the mountains!
Yell, scream and shout!
Well you can say what you want,
I'm not walking out.
Dam all the rivers,
Push, strike and kill.
I'm not gonna leave ya,
There's no way I will....

And I am telling you
I'm not going.
You're the best man I'll ever know
There's no way I can ever, ever go
No, no, no, no way!
No, no, no, no way I'm living without you.
Oh!
I'm not living without ya,
Not living without ya...
I don't wanna, I don't wanna be free.
I'm staying!
I'm staying...
And you,
And you,
And you,
You're gonna love me!
You're gonna love me!
Yes, you are...
Ooh, ooh love me.
Ooh, ooh, ooh love me.
Love me.
Love me.
Love me.
Love me!
You're gonna love
Me!

    General CommentI agree, I've only heard it sung by three people, but each time was very powerful. Including that 12 year old girl, I can't remember her name.
