Eddie Holland/Lamont Dozier/
Brian Holland

I know you're leavin', leavin' me behind
I'm seein' you darlin' for the very last time
Show a little tenderness, mama, before you go
Please let me feel your embrace once more

Take me in your arms...rock me, rock me a little while
Oh, little darlin'...rock me, rock me a little while

We all must feel...heartache sometimes
Right now, right now...I'm feelin' mine
I tried my best to be strong...but I'm not able
I'm like a helpless child...left in a cradle
Before you leave me...'fore you leave me far behind
Please, let me feel...happy one more time

Take me in your arms...rock me, rock me a little while
Oh, little darlin'...rock me, rock me a little while

I'm losin' you...and my happiness
My life, it is so dark...I must confess
I'll never, never see your smiling face no more
I'll never, ever hear your knock upon my door
Before you leave me, leave me behind
Please, let me feel...happy one more time

Take me in your arms...rock me, rock me a little while
Oh, little baby...rock me, rock me a little while
Oooh...yeah, yeah (BREAK)

I beg you, baby (take me, take me)
Oh, baby, please, yeah (take me, take me)
Come on, baby, (take me, take me)
Can't you see me on my knees, now (take me, take me)
Come on, baby-ow (take me, take me)
Have a little, please (take me, take me)
Come on to your daddy (take me, take me)
Oh, please, please, please, please

Take me in your arms...rock me, rock me a little while (take me, take me)
Oh, little darlin'...rock me, rock me a little while
Come on baby, rock me, rock me a little while (take me, take me)
Oh, little darlin', rock me, rock me a little while
Aaah baby, rock me, rock me a little while
(Take me, take me, take me)
Oh-ho, little darlin', rock me, rock me a little while
