"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

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

Set on you
Set on you
Set on you
Set on you
Set on you
Set on you
I set my mind on you
I'm gonna 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 CommentYou know, those of whom are bashing this song, I have one question that I think I know the answer to. Are you a musician that has written music? It's not as easy as you critics like to think, and besides, it's about the meaning of the song. So, for you who wants to do the cover, you are just raping the lyrics of their meaning. Like George's song "This is Love," "precious words drift away from their meaning." Then, for the guy who says the song is only six words and blows, apparently you haven't found a song to keep you better entertained. To all of whom are respectful, I say thank you!

    General CommentI don't believe this website is meant for attacking songs or artists, it is more for those people that actually LISTEN to the lyrics, and try to understand the meaning, that said

    I believe this song has to do with someone that he loves but cannot be with now, he has a lot of work to get with her. for me, it has meaning because my roommate, whom I love as a friend, is moving away due to a breakup with one of my close buddies, we half jokingly said when we get done with school, we are going to travel the world together. for me, it is pushing me to hurry and get done with all of my stuff in order to acheive this. my mind set on her allows me to work 56 hours a week, and take 15 hours, it is my inspirational song.

    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.
