Precious
Toots and The Maytals Lyrics


Precious, precious.
Precious, precious.
Precious baby, you're mine.
Mmm... if you don't love me, I'm used to that.

If you don't need me, baby, I can adjust to that.
If you don't want me, honey, that's alright.
If you ain't willin', baby, there sure won't be no fight.
'Cause I'm still satisfied
In loving you
And I'll be waiting 'round when you get through.
Oh, you're precious, honey.
You're so precious.

Precious baby, you're mine.
You've been in and out of my life
And, ooh, baby that hurts,
Baby, that hurts, yeah.

You've been with every girl in this town.
You've been dealin' in dirt.
Just wallowin' in dirt, yes you have.
But I look at love as a two-way street.

You get the good with the bad,
You take the bitter with the sweet.
Oh, you're precious, honey.
You're so precious, baby.

Precious baby, you're mine.
Oooh-oooh, na, na, na, na, yeah, baby.
Oooh-oooh, na, na, na, na, yeah, baby.
Mmm... what people say about ya

Sure ain't no fun
But what they don't know about ya,
You're like two men wrapped up in one.
We've got our life, so let's make it.

It's our chance, so come on, baby, let's take it.
Oh, you're precious, baby.
You're so precious (precious).
Precious baby, you're mine.

Yes, honey (precious).
You're precious, baby.
Precious baby, you're mine.
Ooh, you're precious, baby, yeah (precious).

You're so precious, yes, you are (precious).
Precious baby, you're mine.
Oooh, you're precious, honey (precious).
Oooh, you're precious, baby (precious).

Precious baby, you're mine.

Toots is in a class by himself. Truly, one of the all-time greats.

Michael Taylor

Yes he is one of a kind!!

Lawrence Njawe

I had this on cassette in 88 but was hugely disappointed by its un-rootsy feel despite some critics' acclaim. But I acknowledge Toots as one of my all time favorite reggae artists.
