Lyrics to "You're All I Need To Get By" song by "Marvin Gaye"

You're all I need to get by, oh, oh
You're all I need to get by, oh, oh
Like sweet morning dew, I took one look at you (you're all I need to get by)
And it was plain to see, you were my destiny (you're all I need to get by)
With my arms open wide (you're all I need to get by)
I threw away my pride
I'll sacrifice for you
Dedicate my life for you, oh, ohI will go where you lead, c'mon, baby, always there in time of need, oh, oh
And when I lose my will you'll be there to push me up the hill
There's no, no looking back for us
We got love sure 'nough, that's enough
You're all, You're all I need to get by(You're all I need to get by), oh, oh, yeah, yeah, tammi, listen
Like an eagle protects his nest, for you I'll do my best (you're all I need to get by)
Stand by you like a tree, dare anybody to try and move me (you're all I need to get by)
Darling, in you I found (you're all I need to get by)
Strength where I was torn down (you're all I need to get by)
Don't know what's in store but together we can open any door
Oh, baby, just to do what's good for you and inspire you a little higher
Oh, I know you can make a man out of a soul that didn't have a goal
'Cause we, we got the right foundation and with love and determination
You're all I want to strive for and do a little more
You're all, all the joys under the sun wrapped up into one, you're
All, you're all I need
You're all I need
You're all I need, oh, to get by (you're all I need to get by)
Ooh, baby, oh, baby (you're all I need to get by)
Honey, honey, honey, honey, honey, yeah (you're all I need to get by)
I need you darlin' (you're all I need to get by)
Oh, I need you, all your love, you're all I need, oh (you're all I need to get by)
Oh, baby, you're all I need, I need your love, you're all I want
Oh, oh, all your love, now, yeah

Marvin Pentz Gay, Jr. (2 April 1939 - 1 April 1984) was an American soul and rnb singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist, known as "The Prince of Soul", or "The Prince of Motown." Originally a member of the doo-wop group The Moonglows, he pursued a solo career after the group disbanded and released many successful solo hits including "I Heard It Through the Grapevine", "Let's Get It On" and "What's Going On". His best albums are still held in extremely high regard, and he is often cited as one of the finest singers of his era.

Marvin Pentz Gay, Jr. was born in 1939 to Marvin Gay, Sr. and Alberta Gay in Washington, D.C.. Gaye began his career in Motown in 1958, and soon became Motown's top solo male artist. He scored numerous hits during the 1960s, among them "Ain't That Peculiar", "Stubborn Kind of Fellow", and "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)", as well as several hit duets with Tammi Terrell, including "Ain't No Mountain High Enough"" and "You're All I Need to Get By", before moving on to his own form of musical self-expression.

Along with Stevie Wonder, Gaye is notable for fighting the hit-making—but creatively restrictive—Motown record-making process, in which performers, songwriters and record producers were generally kept in separate camps. Gaye forced Motown to release his 1971 album What's Going On, which is today hailed as one of the best albums of all time. Subsequent releases proved that Gaye, who had been a part-time songwriter for Motown artists during his early years with the label, could write and produce his own singles without having to rely on the Motown system. This achievement would pave the way for the successes of later self-sufficient singer-songwriter-producers in African American music, such as Luther Vandross and Babyface.

During the 1970s, Gaye would release several other notable albums, including Let's Get It On and I Want You, and released several successful singles such as "Come Get to This", "Got to Give It Up" and "Sexual Healing". By the time of his shooting death in 1984, at the hands of his clergyman father, Gaye had become one of the most influential artists of the soul music era. Read more on Last.fm.
