[Intro:]
Uh-huh huh huhhh
Let me tell ya now
Uh-huh
(Mmhhmmm)

[Verse:]
When I had you to myself
I didn't want you around
Those pretty faces always make you
Stand out in a crowd
But some one picked you from the bunch
One glance was all it took
Now it's much too late for me
To take a second look

(Chorus 1)
Oh baby give me one more chance
Won't you please let me
Back in your heart
Oh darlin I was blind to let you go
But now since I see you in his arms
I want you back
Oh I do now
I want you back
Ooh ooh baby
I want you back
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah
Na na na na

[Verse 2:]
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 right on
I leave tearstains on the ground
Following the girl
I didn't even want around
Let me tell you now

(Chorus 2)
Oh baby all I need is one more chance
(To 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
Uh-huh

(Breakdown)
(A-boo boo boom ba boom 5x)
Ah boo boo boo boo
Ah boo boo boo boo
All I want
Ah boo boo boo boo
All I need
Ah boo boo boo boo
All I want
Ah boo boo boo boo
All I need!
(Jermaine) Oh, just one more chance to
Show you that I love you baby,
(Michael) Baby!
(Jermaine) Baby
(Michael) Baby!
(Jermaine) Baby,
(Michael) Baby!
(I want you back)
(Tito) Forget what happened then
(Jermaine) Let me love you again!

(Michael) Oh, baby, I was blind to let you goooo!
But now since
I see
You
In his arms
(I want you back)
(Tito) Spare me out this cause
(Jermaine) And give me what I lost

(Michael) Oh, baby, I need one more chance
Ha!
I'll tell you that I love you
(Jermaine) Baby
(Michael)Oh!
(Jermaine)Baby
(Michael) Oh!
I want you back!
Ha
I want you back!
Oh, I want you back

(Fades out)
