"I Want You Back" as written by Deke Richards, Alphonso James Mizell, Freddie Perren and Berry Gordy....
Oh ho whoa oh
Let me tell ya now

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

Oh baby give me one more chance
(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
(I want you back)
Yes I do now
(I want you back)
Ooh ooh baby
(I want you back)
Ya ya ya ya
(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
Every street you walk on
I leave tear stains on the ground
Following the girl
I didn't even want to run
Let me tell you now

Oh baby all I need is one more chance
(Show you that I love you)
Won't you please let me
(Back 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
Oh whoa oh

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, baby, baby, baby, baby
Ooh I want you back

Forget what happened then
I want you back
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 back)
Spare me of this cause
(I want you back)
Gimme back what I lost

Oh baby I need one more chance ha
I tell ya that I love you
Now baby, ow, baby, ow, baby
I want you back
I want you back
I want you back
I want you back
