“My Love Is Waiting” by Marvin Gaye Lyrics

Thank you, ladies and gentlemen
I sure hope you’ve enjoyed our new album here on CBS Records
We’d like to thank Mr. Harvey Fuqua, Mr. Gordon banks
Mr. Mike Butcher, Mr. Larkin Arnold, most of all
We want to thank our Heavenly Father, Jesus, ooh

Oh Lord, oh Lordy

I’m coming straight to your love, baby
Mmm
Ooh, hey
I’m like a rocket girl

Been so long
I’m making plans to get back to you
Still, I’m wondering what to do
Seems so long, yeah
Ooh, make it up to you
I’m like a rocket girl
I miss you, baby
And I miss your mind

We had so much love
I need to love your body, ooh-ooh
Well here we are
In and out of love
I hope we’re learning to fall in love anew
Girl, I know, yeah
Mmm I know your tender lovin’, that’s why I want you (want your love)
I need you lovin’, yeah
(Need your love)
And I miss your mind
(And your body)
We had so much love
(Love to give)
I need to love your body
Love your body

Been so long (seems like forever, darlin’)
Since you were in my arms
I need to rock you (I wanna rock you, rock you, rock you)
And hold you all night long (ooh)
I’m so happy to spend this time with you (I need your lovin’, ooh something’s got to give)
So very happy (I’m bitter for your love)
That we might start anew (I got to rock you, rock you)

I miss you, baby
(Miss your love)
Oh and I miss your mind
(And your mind, babe)
We had so much love
(Love to give)
I need to love your body
(Love your body)
Love your soul, baby
Hey, oh love your soul

My love, I want to love you again
(The city’s waitin’ for you)
Need you again
(My love is waitin’ for you)
My love, I want to love you again
(The city’s waitin’ for you)
Ooh, need you in the midnight

Been so long, baby (been so long, been so long, been so long, been so long)
Making all my plans to get back to you (been so long, been so long, oh)
What I’m gonna do? (Been so long, been so long)
Oh, it seems so long, but I’ll make it up to you, baby (been so long, been so long)
Like an IBM and a rocket girl (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Straight for your love, baby
(I need your love)
‘Cause I miss your mind
(And your body)
We had so much love
(Love to give)
I need to love your body
(Love your body)

When I make you mine, I’ll be fine
Baby, baby
When I make you mine, I’ll be fine
‘Cause I miss your body
When I make you mine, I’ll be fine
Baby, baby
When I make you mine, I’ll be fine
‘Cause I miss your body
When I make you mine, I’ll be fine
Baby, baby
When I make you mine, I’ll be fine
Oh baby
When I make you mine, I’ll be fine
Baby, baby
When I make you mine, I’ll be fine
Darlin’
When I make you mine, I’ll be fine
‘Cause I miss your body
When I make you mine, I’ll be fine
Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby
When I make you mine, I’ll be fine
‘Cause
