Chi-Lites, The - Oh Girl Lyrics

Oh, girl
I'd be in trouble if you left me now
'Cause I don't know where to look for love
I just don't know how

Oh, girl
How I depend on you
To give me love when I need it
Right on time you would always be

All my friends call me a fool
They say let the woman take care of you
So I try to be hip and think like the crowd
But even the crowd can't help me now, oh

Oh, girl
Tell me, what am I gonna do
I know I've got a guilty face
Girl, I feel so out of place, oh, yeah yeah

Don't know where to go, who to see, yeah

Oh, girl
I guess I better go
I can save myself a lot of useless tears
Girl, I've gotta get away from here

Oh, girl
Pain will double if you leave me now
'Cause I don't know where to look for love
And I don't, I don't know how

Oh, yeah
Oh, girl
Why do I love you so?

Better be on my way, I can't stay
Have you ever seen such a helpless man, oh no
Oh girl

  47. johnbeechy

    I am Glad that.. the Men that used to rep the words. sung and sang.. secure some coins off being included in the content that pays them to become a go further its ironic that the Sopranos had an ep about how the mob (Hebrew element) owned the Black Talent to the point that the talent .. ate and toured but never really got rich.. the Supremes found out when they left Motown that they ONLY received 3% of the total.. that is 1% each.. after all the costs and inbreed accounting.. Glad that Chi-lites secured some after math coins..

  48. J B

    1991 in the Dentis office loving this song

  73. Paul Weber

    Historical footnote: After they started keeping track of how many times a song got played on American radio so artists made a little more money on the back end, "China Grove" by The Doobie Brothers was the first to hit 1M airplays. The first one to hit TEN MILLION airplays was this track. The old school format stations that began in the 80's and Adult Contemporary stations played this one all the time.

    Oh little girl, oh sweet baby
    Oh girl, I'd be in trouble if you left me now
    'Cos I don't know where to look for love, I just don't know how
    Oh girl, how I depend on you to give me love when I need it
    Right on time you would always be there
    All my friends call me a fool
    They say let the woman take care of you
    So I try to be hip and think like the crowd
    But even the crowd can't help me now
    Oh girl tell me, tell me what am I gonna do?
    And I know I've got a guilty face
    Girl I feel so out of place
    Yeah girl, what am I gonna do? Do
    What am I gonna do?
    If you leave me baby what am I gonna do?
    I don't know where to go, who to see yeah
    Oh girl, I guess I'll never know
    I can save myself a lot of useless tears
    Girl I've gotta get away from here
    Oh girl, girl, girl pain will double if you leave me now
    'Cos I don't know where to look for love and I don't
    I don't know how, oh no
    Oh girl, girl, why do I love you so?

  86. FLAWLSS1

    I remember growing up listening to Rap music. My dad would say “that’s not music, you don’t know what music is” and now at 35 years old I know what he meant. No music like the classic stuff. I do still listen to rap primarily, but love the old stuff. Thank god my pops is still alive today

  90. Smooth Mover

    Love this song, nearly as much as I Iove The Sopranos. God bless you James.

  91. IdkMaybeShawn

    When I hear this thing it makes me want to go home and take my wife by the hand and dance with her then hug as we reflect on the life we built together and all the children and grandchildren we're surrounded with. Then the song is over and I realize I never had a wife or family, I pushed away every woman who ever wanted something like that and now I'm old and I'm gonna die alone.

  92. kujjjooo

    Tony soprano whipping that guy that stole his young Russian girlfriend 😆😆😆👍

    Cruising in my 57 Chevy at 16 years old in 1969 listening to this song. Where the hell has the time gone.

    Your Chevy must have been '57, but this song was a hit in 1972, not 1969. But I get your spirit and feeling with this song!
