"I Want You Back" as written by Deke Richards, Alphonso James Mizell, Freddie Perren and Berry Gordy....
When I had you to myself
I didn't want you around
Those pretty faces always made you
Stand out in a crowd

Then 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, darling, I was blind to let you go
Let you go baby
Cause now since I see you it is all
I want you back
Yes, I do now
I want you back
Oo oo baby
I want you back
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
I want you back
Now now now now

Trying 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 tear stains on the ground
Following the girl
I didn't even want around.
(Let me show you now)

Oh, baby, all I need is one more chance
To show you that I love you
Won't you please let me
Back in your heart
Oh, darling, I was blind to let you go
Let you go baby
Cause now since I see you it is all

Ah bah bah bah buh
All I want
Ah bah bah bah buh
All I need
Ah bah bah bah buh
All I want
Ah bah bah bah buh
All I need

Oh, just one more chance
To show that I love you, baby!

Baby!
Baby!
Baby!

I want you back
Forget what happened then

Oh, baby I was blind to let you go
Cause now since I see you it is all
I want you back
Oh, baby I need one more chance
