I Let Love Slip Away
David Ruffin Lyrics


Huh uh uh uh uh...
Ooh huh baby...
I let love slip away.
Now all that I can say,
is here's a toast to a better day.
And a love that will come and stay
and keep me happy.
Love Oh Love Oh Love wherever you are.
I'll come on you near and afar.
Hurry love, as soon as you can.
Oh honey in the shape I'm in,
and make me happy.
Love Oh Love Oh Love Oh Love Oh Love.
Be as sweet and as caring as a dove.
Pleeeeeeease
Fly down, fly down from up above.
Take my hand, honey now, promise your love,
and I'll hold you tight.
With all of my might.
Now I sit back to wait
Oh hoo hooo hooo woo
I pray you don't make me too late.
Hurry love, hurry love as soon as you can honey,
and help me in the shape I'm in.
And make me happy.
Hurry loooooove.
Hurry love and in the shape I'm in.
Hurry love and make me happy.
Huuury love and keep me happy, yeah.
Hoooo oooooh ooooh oooh.

This is one of my Favourite songs. I play it over and over. David Ruffin is my most Favourite singer of so many wonderful singers whose music I have enjoyed throughout my life. I love the beautiful way David can softly reach high notes and the raspiness of his baritone notes and the amazing emotion he puts into every song. RIP David Ruffin. You will never be forgotten.

I let love slip away is the best song of David Ruffin's 2nd album and was written by Marvin Gaye and Anna Gordy! This song should have been released as a hit and in my opinion, one of David Ruffin's best performances!

Marvin Gaye did not co write this song.. Ana Gordy did.. She was Marvin Gaye's first wife 🙄
