The One Who Really Loves You
Mary Wells Lyrics


Some other girls are fillin' your head with jive
So now you're acting like you don't know that I'm alive
Love you better wake up, yeah, before we break up
And you lose me, little me
The one who really loves you

Susie only wants you until the day (only wants you until the day)
That she'll again have her true love who's far, far away (her true love far away)
So love you better wake up, yeah, before we break up
And you lose me, little me
The one who really loves you (I really love you, yeah)

Ginnie only wants you 'cause she thinks she has to have everyone
Minnie only wants you 'cause she thinks that hurting me would be fun
Oh, oh, oh, silly Lilly, you know she doesn't really want you with a love that's true
In fact there's no other girl in this whole wide world who can love you like I do

They get tired of you and they're gonna put you down (put you down, put you down)
Then they ain't gonna want you hangin' around (hangin' around, hangin' around)
So love you better wake up, yeah, before we break up
And you lose me, little me
The one who really loves you (I really love you, yeah)

I do, really, really love you (I really love you)
Uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh

Love this lady...RIP,,,.Mary Esther Wells (May 13, 1943 – July 26, 1992) was an American singer who helped to define the emerging sound of Motown in the early 1960s. Along with the Supremes, the Miracles, the Temptations, and the Four Tops, Wells was said to have been part of the charge in black music onto radio stations and record shelves of mainstream America, "bridging the color lines in music at the time."
With a string of hit singles composed mainly by Smokey Robinson, including "The One Who Really Loves You"", "Two Lovers" (1962), the Grammy-nominated "You Beat Me to the Punch" (1962) and her signature hit, "My Guy" (1964), she became recognized as "The Queen of Motown" until her departure from the company in 1964, at the height of her popularity. She was one of Motown's first singing superstars.

@Belle Starr Yes! All of my musical treasures I am soon going to start purchasing the analog or tangible copies of all things vinyl, CD, cassette, etc. Anything digital could be erased forever unless people have backup copies stored externally.
