I'm So Glad I Fell For You
David Ruffin Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Yesterday my life was filled with sadness,
I had little hope of ever, ever finding gladness,
All my roads were closed,
And marked with Never, Never, Nevermore,
I had accepted my life to be just a bore.
Whooohooohoooooo...
All I did was sit at home,
And watch and search for tomorrow,
That was the only thing from life
That I thought I could just borrow.
But now my life has changed,
As the world turned, it's rearranged,
'Cause I found sunshine, yes I did, ha!
Had shone over the dark hill.

Wooooooooww
Oh, I'm, I'm so glad, so glad, I fell for you,
I wanna say I'm, I'm so glad, so glad I fell for you.
What I wanna do is thank you baby, thank you,
Thank you baby, thank you baby,
'Cause you knew what, you know you knew what to do baby,
Oh yes you did.

Ohhh, baby now, all I wanna do,
Now, all I wanna do now, is do for you baby;
Whatever, whatever you want me to,
Oh, you know I'll do for you baby.
I wanna thank you baby, thank you baby, thank you baby,
'Cause I know, I know you knew what to do in the beginnin', baby.
Oh, yes you did; oh, yeah.

Feelin' faint from
Fears of yesterday's battles, whoa yeah;
Tryin' hard to mount a horse
I couldn't even straddle;
Girl, believe me when I say,
I've gotta, gotta, gotta hand it to ya;
Your love gave me a fresh start,
When I thought I was through.
Whaaaahoooooooooooooh!

I'm, I'm so glad, I'm so glad I fell for you;
I wanna say, I'm, I'm so glad, so glad I fell for you.
What I wanna do is,
Thank you, thank you baby.
Whaaaaahoooo!
I know you knew what to do baby,
Whoa yes you did, whoa yes you did.
Oh! Oohh!

I'm, I'm so glad, I'm glad I fell for you.
I wanna say, I'm (whaa-whooo),
I'm so glad, I'm so glad, I'm so glad I fell for ya.
I wanna thank you baby, thank you baby.
Whaaa-whooo!
Thank you 'cause you know you knew what to do in the beginnin', yes you did.
Oh, yes you did, baby.
Oh, oh oh, whoooooooooooooooooooo.
I'm so, so glad, so glad I fell for you, baby.
Say it again, whooohooooo,
I'm so glad, I'm glad I fell for you.

What I wanna do is thank you baby, thank you baby (Whaoooohooo).




Thank you 'cause you knew what to do.
Aw, yes you did, Aw yes you did.

I met David ruffin at a club in Greenville, ms. After the show, I showed him my David ruffin fan club card. He told me to give it to his manager. Minutes later David walked up to me with his arm raised high to give me the high hand shake. I was almost speechless. We talked, he said nothing about the temptations, he only talked about things he had done. He gave me a diamond pin, and his new address. I felt I was in heaven. David ruffin, the greatest. Rest in peace.

Paul Martin
