It Should Have Been Me
Gladys Knight & The Pips Lyrics


I saw my love walking down the aisle
And as he passed me by
He turned and gave me a smile
Then, the preacher, then the preacher
The preacher joined their hands
And all the people, all the people began to stand
When I shouted, "you know it should have been me"
(Instead of her walking with you)

You are leaving me stranded
You know that it should have been me baby
Oh baby gettin' ready to marry you
Darlin' darlin' darlin'
You made a promise that we would never part
Then you turned around and broke my little heart
Now you're standing there saying I do
Holding hands with somebody new
You know that it should have been me
(I can't stand it)
Instead of her standing by you
You know that it should have been me
It should have been me
(Baby don't do it)
Then the preacher oh yeah the preacher asked
That there be silence please

If anybody objects to this wedding
Speak now or forever or forever hold your peace
Thin I shouted, "It should have been me"
You know that it should have been me
Don't you know that it should have been me
You know that it should have been me
I've been faithful to you baby, baby, baby
You were leaving me stranded

Fantastic tune. Gladys has an uncanny ability to make any song whether written for her or not, her own. And of course the Pips provide amazing background. Love the added drums that come as the record progresses.

~ 1963, here 1968, 1976! Love and honour and respect to our living icon: Gladys Knight!
Many thousands of hours of enjoyment from she & the tipsy Pips! This song was so ahead of its time in the 1960s.
R.I.P. here for the icon Norman Whitfield, and this brilliant song still fresh in 2019!! Cheers, DAVEDJ ~

I like this version, but LOVE the original as recorded by Yvonne Fair.

Shirley Zimmerman

Gladys had always been my Queen Of Soul. She reached down, pulls up the Soul, and serves it on a platter for all to enjoy.
