"I Want You Back" as written by Deke Richards, Alphonso James Mizell, Freddie Perren and Berry Gordy....
Ohhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh
Let me tell ya now
Uh-huh

When I had you to myself
I didn't want you around
Those pretty faces always made you stand out in the 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

Oh baby give me one more chance
(to show you that I love you)
Won't you please let me
Back in your heart
Oh darlin' I was blind to let you go
(to let you go baby)
But now since I see you in his arms
(I want you back)
Yes I do now
(I want you back)
Ooh ooh baby
(I want you back)
Yea yea yea yea
(I want you back)
Na na na na

Tryin' to live without your love
Is one long sleepless night
Let me show you girl
That I know wrong from right.
Oh, every street you walk on
I leave tearstains on the ground.
Following the girl
I didn't even want around

Oh baby give me one more chance
(to show you that I love you)
Won't you please let me
(back 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

Bum Buh Bum Bum

(A buh buh buh buh)
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!

Oh just one more chance
to show you that I love you
Baby

(I want you back)
Forget what happened babe
(I want you back)
I dont wanna live again

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 back
I want you back

Ah Ah Ah, Ah Ah Ah

Oh baby I need one more chance
To show you that I love you

I want you back!
