Diana Ross - Selfish One Lyrics




Selfish one, why keep your love to yourself
It's like a souvenir that just sits on a shelf
It seems like you built a fence around your heart
Afraid that sharing might tear it apart
You pass up every chance at the start of romance

Selfish one, why keep your love in store
You think it's still that keeps forever more
You feel as I do when I ache
My heart could break down in a lonely stage
You better let your heart find a mate before it's too late

You let so much time pass by
I find myself still giving you the eye
You must have realised much to my surprise
You're making eyes at me
Is it really you

Now selfish one, you're walking me to my door
Selfish one, you never did this before
Without a chance to resist, your lips get mine
You're beginning to let your love light shine
I can see that you're really on the ball

You're not selfish at all
No, not at all
The way you hold me, the way you squize me
No you're not selfish
No, no, no
You're not selfish at all, not at all

The way you hold me, the way you squize me
You're not selfish at all
No not at all
The way you hold me
You're not selfish at all

Diana Ross Selfish One Comments
  1. Sean Kenny

    Diana Ross made 100 times more records at least than other 60s Soul girl singer. She will always laugh in the face of Aretha but it is cute and sweet she sang Selfish one. I love Diana Ross 🤗

  6. Marquise Teague

    She sounds like Michael Jackson on this track.

  7. Brock White

    Diana does her usual masterpiece singing this - terrific!

  9. Chloe Charleston

    DIANA happens to be MY ALL TIME FAVORITE SINGER,,BUT,,JACKIE TAKES THE CAKE ON THIS ONE... PROBABLY BECAUSE OF THE ARRANGEMENT...TOO FAST,,UNORGANIZED,,ETC....NICE TRY "D"...CANT WIN THEM ALL....

    Diana Ross version is played at a speed that each recording is played differently.

  10. Kenneth Hamlett

    A terrific performance of a great song by Ms. Ross. She honors Jackie Ross with the flattery that emulation pays. But, she also gives the song the sublime Ross phrasing -- among the best of any singer of any generation -- and that laser-like soprano that is so instantly recognizable and beautiful.

  11. Cynthia Harris

    Jackie ross has it, Diane need to quit playin

  12. Guy Will

    there is that thing with Diana, its sexy and sweet at the same time, utterly irresistible just a sexy classy lady

  15. Brutha Dnubian

    Jackie s big sister.....just kidding. I used to think they were related when i was little. Great remake.

    ilj274

    +iluvrachellef I didn't think someone else sang this song, I always thought someone wrote this song for Diana Ross. So is it true that Diana Ross got this song from Jackie Ross or is it others who also sang this song as well?

    Brutha Dnubian

    @ilj274 this is Jackie's song from the 60's. No relation to The Boss.

    ilj274

    @iluvrachellef So Diana Ross basically decided to sing one of Jackie's songs? 

    Brutha Dnubian

    @ilj274 you got it lol.

    I always thought she should have recorded this in the 60's with The Supremes. I'm glad she eventually got her vocals to this song.

    This is a great song, and Diana Ross nails it!
