Jimmy Mack
Martha Reeves & The Vandellas Lyrics


Jimmy Mack Jimmy
Oh, Jimmy Mack when are you comin' back
Jimmy Mack Jimmy,
Oh, Jimmy Mack when are you comin' back

My arms are missing you,
My lips feel the same way too
I tried so hard to be true, like I promised to do
But this guy keeps comin' around
He's tryin' to wear my resistance down

Hey, Jimmy, Jimmy
Oh, Jimmy Mack, when are you comin' back
Jimmy, Jimmy, oh, Jimmy Mack, you better hurry back

Now he calls me on the phone about three times a day
Now my heart doesn't listen to, what he has to say
But this loneliness I have within
Reaching out to be his friend

Hey, Jimmy, Jimmy
Oh, Jimmy Mack, when are you comin' back
Jimmy, Jimmy, oh, Jimmy Mack, you better hurry back
I just need your loving, need your loving, yeah, yeah

I wanna say I'm not getting any stronger
I can't hold out very much longer
Trying hard, to be true
But Jimmy, he talks just as sweet as you

Hey, Jimmy, Jimmy
Oh, Jimmy Mack, when are you comin' back
Jimmy, can't you hear me, Jimmy
Oh, Jimmy Mack, you better hurry back
I just need your loving, need your loving
Hey, oh, Jimmy Mack, when are you coming back
Hey, Jimmy Mack, you better hurry back
Oh, I'm not getting any stronger, I can't hold out very much longer

Something about the way music was recorded back then has just this amazing, cool, sound. I don’t know how to describe it technically, but it’s fantastic and even haunting imo.

Never let old skool music die..

John Sanchez

Agreed

lindsey lefrois

The background vocals on this song are absolutely angelic .... that's the only word I can think of to describe them.

Lenard Shaw

Ha....I try to sing along with Rosalind, Annette/Betty when I hear this great song. Always go wrong somewhere tho..

Yes! Rosalind and Betty gelled well together. Of course not to take anything away from Annette. I think this was Betty’s last hit with them before she left the group. And to be honest, I don’t even think Betty is on this because it was originally recorded in ‘64
