Ohh ohhh ohh
Let me tell you now

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

Let me tell you now
Ohh baby give me one more chance
(To show you that I love you)
Won't you please let me
(Back to your heart)
Oh darlin' I was blind to let you go
(Let you go baby)
But now since I see you back in his arms

All I want
All I need
All I want
All I need

Baby baby ohh
I want you back
Forget what happened then
I want you back

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
(I want you back)
Oh baby I need one more chance ha
I tell ya that I love you
Baby ohh
Baby ohh

I want you back (3x)

    The singer is telling the guy/girl (it was meant to be for a girl since it was by the jackson 5) that they shouldn't have let them go and that they need a second chance and regret breaking up because they really do love them.

    Love this song!! Jackson 5 and the vicorious cast both did amazing!

    My meaning to i want you back is just telling the guy that she wants one more chance for the boy to forgive her and she really wants him back.
