Smokey Robinson And The Miracles – If You Can Want lyrics

Oh you may not love me now, but I'm stayin' around
'Cause you want my company
Just like push can turn to shove, like can turn to love
& it's my philosophy that...

Chorus:
If you can want, you can need
& if you can need, you can care
If you can care, you can love
So when you want me, I'll be there

Whenever you want me, I'll be there

Oh now this may take some time, but if time was money
I would be a millionaire
So whenever you want me, call any time at all
& for sure I'll be right there, 'cause...

[Chorus:]
(I'll be there) whenever you want me

(Instrumental)

I'll be standin' by, not far way
Let your heart give me a sign
'Cause I'm prepared to wait until I abfiducate
When you want me all the time, 'cause...

(Repeat & fade):
[Chorus:]
(I'll be there) whenever you want me
