"If I Could Build My Whole World Around You" Lyrics

Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell

(Marvin)
If I could build my whole world around you, darlin'
First I'd place heaven by your side.
Pretty flowers would grow wherever you walked, honey
And over your hea dwould be the bluest sky.

Then I'd take every drop of rain
And wash all your troubles away.
I'd have my whole world wrapped up in you darlin'
And that would be alright.

(Tammi)
If I could build my whole world around you,
I'd make your eyes the morning sun.
I'd put so much love where there'd been sorrow,
I'd put joy where there'd never been none.

Then I'd give my love to you, boy.
For you to keep for the rest of your life.
And oh, happiness would surely be ours
And that would be alright, oh yes it would.

(Marvin & Tammi)
Doo-doo-doo-di-dip, doo-doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo-di-dip, doo-doo-doo-doo.

(Marvin)
Oh, if I could build my whole world around you darlin'
I'd give you the greatest gift that a woman could possess.

(Tammi)
Then I'd step into this world you created
And bring you true love and happiness.
And there'd be something new in every tomorrow
To make this world better as days go by.

(Marvin)
That is if I could build my whole world around you...

(Tammi)
If I could build my whole world around you

(Marvin & Tammi)
And that would be alright...ohhhhhh, yeah!

(Marvin)
If I could just build my world, baby...

(Tammi)
If I could build it, build it all around you...

(Marvin & Tammi)
Then that would be alright, awwww yeah!!
