Gaye, Marvin - I Want You Lyrics

I want you, (& I want you)
The right way (& the right way)
I want you (Yes I do)
But I want you to want me too (Want me too)
Want you to want me, baby (& I wanna it 2 be the right way)
Just like I want you

I give you all the love I want in return sweet darlin'
But half a love is all I feel
It's too bad, it's just too sad
You don't want me now
But I'm gonna change your mind
Someway, somehow, oh baby

I want you - the right way
I want you
But I wan't you to want me too
Want you to want me, baby
Just like I want you

This one way love is just a fantasy, oh sugar
To share is precious, pure and fair
Don't play with something you should cherish for life, oh baby
Don't you wanna care
Aint it lonely out there

I want you - the right way
I want you
But I wan't you to want me too
Want you to want me, baby
Just like I want you

[Repeat and fade]

  16. Lelibela Shabakabel

    When he comes back I'm sure he'll be singing new songs,that truly praise our creator,I look forward to that time No graveyards,no hospitals,no prisons,no sick ness,nor death or crime,the former things has passed away.With the curse removed,the tent of god is with mankind life ever lasting at last,in Jesus shed blood,Jehovah god made all this possible.

  19. Carnell Mills

    Detroit sh*t. "Motown music"!!! Your mother and father can listen to it. You can listen to it. Your child can listen to it. 💯


    A song where a man is telling us woman that he wants us ❤️, not “bitch bend your ass over and make it clap while you’re eating out another hoe” excuse my language.

  21. Lena E

    When black Afrikan music expressed love amongst our race rather than degrading each other. No a single bitch, hoe or n-word. I miss this kind of music. I LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE IT

  22. Daina Kennard

    One of the greatest singer of all time, there would never be another Marvin Gaye you are surely missed but your music will live on forever rest in peace.

  41. Grace Estes

    When hear music like this. I realize We black people are Judah. Marvin Gaye, Sam Cook, Jeffery Osborne, Aretha Franklin Luther Vandross, Michael Jackson , James Brown, etc and countless other and many of our Black great singers in general let's we know we are Judah. "The praisers." No other people have such soul and make you feel music.

  42. M. S.

    Listening in January 2020.

  43. 43wolverine

    Grandma let me listen to this when I was ten or so. She is gone now. Rest in peace, Grandma. Gave me game. She jumped on a bus full of soldiers with mama and ran to Greenville SC. The rest is history. I miss her so much. Her and mom taught me how to love a woman. Been obsessed with the same woman (wife) for 20 years or so. Marvin Gaye was so far ahead of his time. There is no close second to Marvin Gaye.

  44. Ricky Wilson

    He would be 81years old this year as today is jan8 2020, but his music is as fresh as the day recorded...thats timeless influence..
