Temptations Lyrics



Aint Too Proud To Beg

I know you wanna leave me

But I refuse to let you go

If I have to beg, plead for your sympathy

I don't mind 'cause you mean that much to me

Ain't too proud to beg, and you know it (sweet darlin')

Please don't leave me, girl (don't you go)

Ain't too proud to plead, baby, baby

Please don't leave me, girl (don't you go)

Now I heard a cryin' man is half a man

With no sense of pride

But if I have to cry to keep you, I don't mind weepin'

If it'll keep you by my side

Ain't too proud to beg, sweet darlin'

Please don't leave me, girl (don't you go)

Ain't too proud to plead, baby, baby

Please don't leave me, girl (don't you go)

If I have to sleep on your doorstep all night and day

Just to keep you from walking away

Let your friends laugh, even this I can stand

'Cause I wanna keep you anyway I can

Ain't too proud to beg, sweet darlin'

Please don't leave me, girl (don't you go)

Ain't too proud to plead, baby, baby

Please don't leave me, girl (don't you go)

Now I've got a love so deep in the pit of my heart

And each day it grows more and more

I'm not ashamed to come and plead to you baby

If pleadin' keeps you from walkin' out that door

Ain't too proud to beg, yes you know it (sweet darlin')

Please don't leave me, girl (don't you go)

Ain't too proud to plead, baby, baby

Please don't leave me, girl (don't you go)

Baby, baby, baby (sweet darlin')

Please don't leave me, girl

 



Get Ready

I never met a girl who makes me feel the way that you do

(You're alright)

Whenever I'm asked who makes my dreams real, I say that you do

(You're outta sight)

So fee fi, fo fum

Look out baby, 'cause here I come

And I'm bringing you a love that's true

So get ready, so get ready

I'm gonna try to make you love me too

So get ready, so get ready, 'cause here I come

(Get ready, 'cause here I come)

I'm on my way

(Get ready, 'cause here I come)

If you wanna play hide and seek with love, let me remind you

(It's alright)

Lovin' you're gonna miss, and the time it takes to find you

(It's outta sight)

So fiddley dee, fiddley dum

Look out baby, 'cause here I come

(Get ready)

All my friends should want you too, I understand it

(Be alright)

I hope I get to you before they do, the way I planned it

(Be outta sight)

So twiddley dee, twiddley dum

Look out baby 'cause here I come

 



Just My Imagination

Each day through my window

I watch her as she passes by

I say to myself

You're such a lucky guy

To have a girl like her

Is truly a dream come true

Out of all the fellas in the world

She belongs to you

But it was just my imagination

Running away with me

It was just my imagination

Running away with me

Soon we'll be married and raise a family

A cozy little home

Out in the country

With two children, maybe three

I tell you I can visualize it all

This couldn't be a dream

For too real it all seems

But it was just my imagination

Once again

Running away with me

Tell you, it was just my imagination

Running away with me

Every night, on my knees I pray

Dear Lord, hear my plea

Don't ever let another take her love from me

Or I will surely die

Her love is heavenly

When her arms enfold me

I hear her tender rhapsody

But in reality

She doesn't even know me

It was just my imagination

Once again

Running away with me

Oh, tell you, it was just my imagination

Running away with me

I never met her

But I can't forget her

Just my imagination

Running away with me

Oooh, just my imagination

Running away with me

.. it was just my imagination

 



My Girl

I've got sunshine on a cloudy day.

When it's cold outside I've got the month of May.

Well, I guess you'd say

What can make me feel this way?

My girl (my girl, my girl)

Talkin' 'bout my girl (my girl).

I've got so much honey the bees envy me.

I've got a sweeter song than the birds in the trees.

Well, I guess you'd say

What can make me feel this way?

My girl (my girl, my girl)

Talkin' 'bout my girl (my girl).

Ooh ooh ooh

Ooh ooh ooh

Hey.

I don't need no money, fortune, or fame.

I've got all the riches baby one man can claim.

I guess you'd say

What can make me feel this way?

My girl (my girl, my girl)

Talkin' 'bout my girl (my girl).

I've got sunshine on a cloudy day

With my girl.

I've even got the month of May

With my girl (fade)

 



That's Life

That's life, that's what people say.

You're riding' high in April, Shot down in May.

But I know I'm gonna change that tune,

When I'm back on top in June.

That's life, funny as it seems.

Some people get their kicks, Steppin' on dreams;

But I don't let it get me down,

'Cause this ol' word keeps getting around.

I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate,

A poet, a pawn and a king.

I've been up and down and over and out

And I know one thing:

Each time I find myself flat on my face,

I pick myself up and get back in the race.

That's life, I can't deny it,

I thought of quitting, But my heart just won't buy it.

If I didn't think it was worth a try,

I'd roll myself up in a big ball and die.
