    Lyrics

    Uh-huh huh huh huh
    Let me tell ya now
    Uh-huh

    VERSE 1:
    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

    CHORUS:
    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

    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 on
    I leave tearstains on the ground
    Following the girl
    I didn't even want around
    Let me tell you now

    CHORUS:
    Oh baby all I need is one more chance
    (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 in his arms

    Uh-huh
    A buh buh buh buh (2 times)
    All I want
    A buh buh buh buh
    All I need
    A buh buh buh buh
    All I want
    A buh buh buh buh
    All I need

    (Jermaine):
    Oh just one more chance
    to show you that I love you
    baby (6 times)

    (I want you back)
    (Jackie):
    Forget what happened then
    (I want you back)
    (Jermaine):
    Let me live again

    Oh baby I was blind to let you go
    But now since I see you in his arms
    (I want you back)
    (Jackie):
    Spare me of this cause
    (Jermaine):
    Gimme back what I lost

    Oh baby I need one more chance ha
    I tell ya that I love you
    (Jermaine)
    baby
    (Micheal)
    ohhh(repeat 3)
    (micheal)
    I want you back ha ha ha ha

      Also could original lyrics by Jackie in 2nd-to-last verse have been:
      "Spare me of this cost"

      Hey, it rhymes with the next line by Jermaine:
      "Gimme back what I lost"
