"Got My Mind Set On You" as written by and Rudy Clark....
I got my mind set on you
I got my mind set on you
I got my mind set on you
I got my mind set on you

But it's gonna take money
A whole lot of spending money
It's gonna take plenty of money
To do it right child

It's gonna take time
A whole lot of precious time
It's gonna take patience and time, um
To do it, to do it, to do it, to do it, to do it
To do it right child

I got my mind set on you
I got my mind set on you
I got my mind set on you
I got my mind set on you

And this time I know it's for real
The feelings that I feel
I know if I put my mind to it
I know that I really can do it

I got my mind set on you
Set on you
I got my mind set on you
Set on you

But it's gonna take money
A whole lot of spending money
It's gonna take plenty of money
To do it right child

It's gonna take time
A whole lot of precious time
It's gonna take patience and time, um
To do it, to do it, to do it, to do it, to do it
To do it right child

I got my mind set on you
I got my mind set on you
I got my mind set on you
I got my mind set on you

And this time I know it's for real
The feelings that I feel
I know if I put my mind to it
I know that I really can do it

But it's gonna take money
A whole lot of spending money
It's gonna take plenty of money
To do it right child

It's gonna take time
A whole lot of precious time
It's gonna take patience and time, um
To do it, to do it, to do it, to do it, to do it
To do it right

Set on you
Set on you

    General CommentThis song is just six words long
    This song is just six words long
    This song is just six words long
    This song is just six words long

    But it's gonna take lyrics
    A whole lotta rhyming lyrics
    It's gonna take plenty of lyrics
    To do it right.

    i love the weird al version of this.

    I don't wanna love this song, but it's hard to not. But it does indeed blow.

    General CommentPoor George. Its catchy, but god does it suck.

    A long way from even 33 1/3. An even longer way from All Things Must Pass

    General CommentI think this is George Harrison attempt at a hit. And of course the attempt was succesful.
    I think this song is like David Bowies 'Let's dance' or 'China girl': it's far too commercial to be good (especially when you compare it to the rest of the artists oeuvre), but you can't help tapping or singing along when you hear it on the radio.

    General Commentno way is this song as good as :let's dance or :china girl. no way no way. I can't tap to it on the radio because I'd turn the dial so fast George's head would spin.

    but sure, he's my favorite Beatle.

    General Commentmy mom used to dance around to this when she was pregnant with me (it was a huge hit the year i was born and it was on the radio all the time, she tells me). thats probably why i love george harrison so much. i listened to him before i knew he was ever in the beatles.

    General CommentI really enjoy this song. It's meant to be fun and I think that goal was achieved. I can't say whether or not George Harrison was sacraficing his so-called "artisticness" for a commercial hit but the quality of the song is just fine.
