Everybody Needs Somebody To Love
Solomon Burke Lyrics


I'm so happy to be here tonight
So glad to be here in your wonderful city
And I have a little message for you
And I want to tell every woman and every man tonight
That's ever needed someone to love
That's ever had somebody to love them
That ever had somebody's understanding
That's ever had someone to need your love all the time
Someone that's with them when they're up
Somebody that's with them when they're down
If you had yourself somebody like this you better hold onto 'em
Let me tell you something
Sometimes you get what you want
And you lose what you have
There's a song I sing
And I believe that if everybody would sing this song you can save the whole world
Listen to me

Everybody needs somebody
Everybody wants somebody to love
Honey to hug, yeah
Sugar to kiss
Baby to miss now, yeah
Baby to tease
Sometimes to please, yeah
And I need you you you
And I need you you you
In the morning baby you you you
When the sun goes down you you you
Ain't no nobody around you you you

Whoa listen to me, sometimes I feel like
I feel a little sad inside
When my baby mistreats me
And I can't get a little little mad
But I need you you you
Just to see me through children
Somebody to hold my hand
When I feel a little lonely, oh but I want to hear you say yeah
Oh baby say yeah, I want to hear you say yeah

I say yeah yeah
Yeah
Somebody
I just want my woman to stand up and say I love you
I want someone to be a witness tonight
I just want to say I love you, I wanna hear you say I love you ohhh
I just want somebody to squeeze tonight yeah

I had the privelige of seeing Solomon, live at the Flamingo Club In Soho London 1965.

I do wish I could live in those times. I really feel like an old soul. But I was born 2002 so I'm 18 😂. Love old music, old fashion, traditional culture.

rogerroj1

Yep, I used to work at the Ram Jam as well as the Flamingo.

Alexander Johnson

I saw him the same year at the RAM JAM...what a power!.

Please let me know how this experience was I'm 35 and only just got to know about him. Absolute legend in my eyes. So much this man has done with his presence and songs. Unbelievable how he's not recognised for all his songs and others alike.

Francis Mason

Reading the s comments on the many music videos I watch (I am 72), would lead one to believe that their lives (and my life) are merely one concert and memorable song after another, sprinkled amid more mundane "working", "career", "wife (husband) and kids", ...."life and death"...The life highlights are in their (my) music they have experienced. This shows the enduring value, and deep connection we all have to our sounds...

Solomon Burke took Rhythm and Blues to Church one day in 1962 and out came "Everybody Needs Somebody To Love" one of the greatest Soul records ever made.  Lest we forget, he was not called the "Wonder Boy Preacher" for nothing.  He uses it to heart wrenching perfection to "Save the whole world."  And he does, trust me.

Hearing these songs reminds me of my late Father he used to play songs like this RIP dad and thanks for introducing me to awesome music
