"Ain't Too Proud To Beg" as written by Edward Holland and Norman J. Whitfield....
I know you wanna leave me
But I refuse to let you go
If I have to beg, plead for your sympathy
I don't mind 'cause you mean that much to me

Ain't too proud to beg and you know it
Please don't leave me girl (don't you go)
Ain't too proud to plead, baby, baby
Please don't leave me, girl (don't you go)

Now I've heard a cryin' man
Is half a man with no sense of pride
But if I have to cry to keep you
I don't mind weepin' if it'll keep you by my side

Ain't too proud to beg, sweet darling
Please don't leave me girl (don't you go)
Ain't too proud to plead, baby, baby
Please don't leave me, girl (don't you go)

If I have to sleep on your doorstep all night and day
Just to keep you from walking away
Let your friends laugh, even this I can stand
'Cause I wanna keep you any way I can

Ain't too proud to beg and you know it
Please don't leave me girl (don't you go)
Ain't too proud to plead, baby, baby
Please don't leave me, girl (don't you go), ooh hoo

Now I've got a love so deep in the pit of my heart
And each day it grows more and more
I'm not ashamed to call and plead to you, baby
If pleading keeps you from walking out that door

Ain't too proud to beg, you know it
Please don't leave me girl (don't you go)
Ain't too proud to plead, baby, baby
Please don't leave me, girl (don't you go)
Baby, sweet darling (please don't go)

    General CommentVery good song I must say. I think more of the movie The Big Chill, but I know there's more to it. Basically about a guy who says he'll beg for forgiveness because he really truly loves the girl.

    General CommentHee hee... its a good song, makes me smile, even though its seems to be quite depressing as its a man trying to keep his girl and not lose her...

    General CommentI think about Fresh Prince. And I think the reason it makes people happy is because 1. They (the Temptations) sound like they're smiling a little; and 2. It's the intro
