Lyrics

  • Uh-huh, huh, huh, huh
  • Let me tell ya now
  • Uh-huh
  • When I had you to myself
  • I didn't want you around
  • Those pretty faces always made you
  • Stand out in a crowd
  • But someone picked you from the bunch
  • One glance was all it took
  • Now it's much too late for me
  • To take a second look
  • Oh baby, give me one more chance
  • (Show you that I love you)
  • Won't you please let me
  • (Back in your heart)
  • Oh darlin', I was blind to let you go
  • (Let you go baby)
  • But now since I see you in his arms
  • (I want you back)
  • Yes, I do now
  • (I want you back)
  • Ooh, ooh baby
  • (I want you back)
  • Ya, ya, ya, ya
  • (I want you back)
  • Na, na, na, na
  • Tryin' to live without your love
  • Is one long sleepless night
  • Let me show you girl
  • That I know wrong from right
  • [From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/m/michael-jackson-lyrics/i-want-you-back-lyrics.html ]
  • Every street you walk on
  • I leave tear stains on the ground
  • Following the girl
  • I didn't even want around
  • Let me tell you now
  • Oh baby, all I need is one more chance
  • (Show you that I love you)
  • Won't you please let me
  • (Back in your heart)
  • Oh darlin', I was blind to let you go
  • (Let you go baby)
  • But now since I see you in his arms
  • All I want
  • All I need
  • All I want
  • All I need
  • Oh, just one more chance
  • To show you that I love you
  • Baby, baby, baby
  • Baby, baby, baby
  • (I want you back)
  • Forget what happened then
  • Let me live again
  • Oh baby, I was blind to let you go
  • But now since I see you in his arms
  • (I want you back)
  • Spare me of this cause
  • Gimme what I lost
  • Oh baby, I need one more chance, ha
  • I tell ya that I love you, baby, baby, baby
  • I want you back, I want you back
  • I want you back
