Love Bug Leave My Heart Alone
Martha Reeves & The Vandellas Lyrics


LOVE BUG LEAVE MY HEART ALONE
Martha and The Vandellas

Oh yeah (get out of here,
Love bug leave my heart alone)
Leave my heart alone (get out of here,
Love bug leave my heart alone)
Spring is here and like a wayward breeze
The love that left me came back haunting me
He's like the ever changin' sun
That warms my heart and leaves
The love but tries to bite again
Ooh I'm falling, the same old heartaches calling

Oh yeah (get out of here,
Love bug leave my heart alone)
I don't want to love him
Get out of here love bug leave my heart alone
Behind each gentle word he speaks
Love bug there you hide
To stir my tender feelings through his words of honey
But if you wait to sleep in love
I bear it deep inside
Love bug you love and leave me
Sobbing and sighing
Again he'll leave me cryin'

Oh yeah (get out of here,
Love bug leave my heart alone)
Get out of here love bug leave my heart alone
I'm telling you love bug, love bug
Hope you fly away
Spread your little wings, leave my heart and fly away
Cause I don't want to love a guy
Who truly don't love me
I don't want the heartaches that I had before
He wants me for the moment and another girl he'll see
And through long and sleepless nights
When I'm tossin' and turnin'
My heart will be burning
Oh yeah (get out of here,
Love bug leave my heart alone)
I don't want to love him
Get out of here love bug leave my heart alone
You know, you know, he don't love me

This classic peaked at #25 on the Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks in late September/early October 1967. This was at the same time the Supremes were in the Top 5 with the great "Reflections." "Love Bug" also deserved to make it to Top 10!

Adore this . Bought it the week it came out and fully expected it to be a UK No 1. Sadly did not even chart could not believe it . Wonderful Martha at her best!

As a teen had same experience but in US it did chart, like you state should have been #1...

Gregory Francis

Just like this song & countless other Motown classics being backed up by the mighty Funk Brothers was pure magic!!

DAVID WOLF

~ This + Honey Chile + Live Wire + SHE & THE Vandellas REALLY HUGE HITS = Motown Dance HEAVEN, STILL RELEVANT AND HOT AND FRESH IN 2018. Love TO OUR LIVING LEGEND: Martha Reeves. Cheers, DAVEDJ ~
