I Want You Back Lyrics – Lake Street Dive
Originally by the Jackson 5 and Michael Jackson

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
Every street you walk on
I leave tear stains on the ground
Following the girlI 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)
