Give It Away
The Chi-Lites Lyrics


Give it away
Ooh, hoo, give it away
Give it away
Ooh, hoo, give it away

What's the sense in giving you love
When you're gonna give it away
Oh, yeah [Give it away]
And what's sense in giving you kisses
When you're gonna give it away
Oh, yeah [Give it away]
You say you have nothing to live for
Baby, baby, I'm here knockin? at your door

Give it away, it?s all right (You can do what you wanna)
Give it away, it?s all right (?Cause I know you're gonna)
Give it away, give it away

What's the sense in having my love
When I'm gonna give it to you [Give it away]
Give it straight to you, baby [Give it away]
And I don't mean maybe

What's sense denying I love you
When you're mad and I'm proud of you [Give it away]
Oh, yeah [Give it away]
Baby, love was made for two

I know, I know, I know it?s meant for me and you
Give it away, it?s all right (You can do what you wanna)
Give it away, it?s all right (?Cause I know you're gonna)
Give it away, give it away

I love you no matter what you do
Baby, baby, baby, baby
Ah... ah... ah... ah... ah...

It's alright
It's alright
Baby, love was made for two
I know, I know, I know it?s meant for me and you

Oh, what's the sense in having my love [Ooh, hoo, give it away]
When I'm gonna give it to you
And what's sense in giving you kisses [Ooh, hoo, give it away]
When it's you I'm gonna be missin'

And what's sense in giving you honey [Ooh, hoo, give it away]
When you're takin' away my money
Oh, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby [Ooh, hoo, give it away]
Yeah, yeah

What's the sense in giving you love [Ooh, hoo, give it away]
What's the sense in giving you money

I grew up on The Chi Lites among many groups. My dad used to jam to this. Could step with the best of them. He has Parkinson's now so his limbs don't move like they should. But I still groove with him in his wheel chair occassionally. Love this song forever.

This is one of my favorite cuts by the Chi-Lites...nice, upbeat.

Seen these guys do this song live at the MET in 1971. I never got a chance to go the Regal because they had torn it down b4 I could get there. But this is a great song by a master story teller Eugene Record. Growing up in Chicago in those days were truly special. 48 and Calumet. Can someone tell me what highschool the Chi lites went to?

Hi Boogie, The Chi-Lites went to Hyde Park High School in Chicago. They were an awesome group! They could sing and dance with the best of them. However, they principally only had one lead singer... Eugene Records. He was a hell of a song writer too! Like you, I was them in person at The Met. The outfits they wore for that show were magnificent! Nice connecting with you! Maceo
