Never Never Leave Me
Mary Wells Lyrics


I love you more than anyone
Should ever be allowed to love anyone or anything
(Anyone or anything)
& I need you more than anyone
Should ever be allowed to need anyone or anything
(Anyone or anything)
So darling, please don't ever break my heart
I beg you, please don't ever make us part
'Cause without you I'd be a little lost sheep
& I'd die (backup singers sing title 4 times)

I would cry more than anyone
Should ever be allowed to cry over anyone or anything
(Anyone or anything)
So please love me more than anyone
Should ever be allowed to love anyone or anything
(Anyone or anything)
Oh darling, on my knees I'm begging you
I'm pleading, please love me as I love you
'Cause without you I'd be a little lost sheep
& I'd die (backup singers sing title 4 times)
Don't ever make me weep

(instrumental)

Oh darling, on my knees I'm begging you
I'm pleading, please love me as I love you
'Cause without you I'd be a little lost sheep
& I'd die

Heartfelt song. Mary was underrated and unappreciated.

KRS TV

wow this song is so melodic and her lyrics just make me melt. Mary Wells was a very special woman. She was feeling this and the song should have been #1 on the r&b and pop charts.

Victoria Ramirez

Mary Wells was a legend I love her voice

Chaka Smith

I absolutely ADORE Mary Wells. She was the TRUE first lady of Motown. I just wish she received the full and proper recognition she deserves. I know drugs did hinder that unfortunately.

@Mosaic Pitts Paul Williams’ family hadda fight until 1988. Sad.

I didn't know about the drugs until you told me. I was twelve years old when I first heard a Motown song I had to have. While I had heard others from Tamla, I had never heard an official Motown song until Mary's, "You Beat Me To The punch," came along. With my allowance I bought my first 4 singles. Mary's, The Marvelettes, "Playboy,", Neil Sedaka's, " Breaking Up..," and Dee Dee Sharp's, "Gravy." I still remember the little shop downtown where I bought them. Anyway, I was an eternal fan of Mary's from then on.
A little funny story. My Copy of, "Never Never Leave Me had been melted in a fire so, in !991, I went looking through every record bin in town for like a week. I finally found one in a, "used," bin in a record store, but the price wasn't marked. I went to the manager who acted all surprised and said, "oh, this shouldn't have been on the floor that way. this is a very rare album,. I'm going to take it to the office and relist it." The creep decided to charge 90 dollars for it. I left annoyed and disappointed, of course, but I laughed my butt off at him, when a few years later it came out on CD, and I got it used for 4 dollars. You have no idea what added pleasure I get every time I listen to it, as I have the last laugh on that greedy SOB who tried to rip me off for 90 dollars. I think of him every time. By the way, he soon went out of business. Last laughs are a gift that keeps on giving.

@Leonard James that was very stupid of Mary Wells by taking up smoking, apparently success made her forgot that she didnt born a healthy child, I read that her mother had to take her to the hospital very regular because of a sickness she had as a child growing up, I believe it came back to killed her as mature woman, because she wasnt taking care of herself, consuming whatever.

Chaka Smith . Barry exploited all Of His Groups and they never received royalty from their hits. Drugs was allowed to cloud the mind from being conscious of Business.

You said it. Great voice, The only female singer from Motown that is as good is Martha.
