Gaye, Marvin - All The Way Round Lyrics




Do you wanna do it lets it get it on
but how you gonna act this time around
before I take it off down to the skin
lets get an understanding
Girl you didn't understand my philosophy
you did not understand
you just ran away from me
Oh I miss you baby
ohh I miss you baby, I miss you
you're the best I ever had
You're so bad baby
but I must like you like that
although you won't let me control this or that
contantly playing this tit for tat
Ah now I see you're coming straight to the point
you say the more you get baby
ah the more you want me
yeah darling you're not waisting my time
what I see baby is so hard to find
although you've been all over town baby
having your affairs I still have to accept you back
angel though you're promiscuious I don't mind a bit cause you're still the greatest lay even when you're miles away
Girl if you run away again
surely my heart would never mend
don't tell me the love we made
was just for old times sake
staying up waiting for you to come home at night
was just so hard to take
she said that pain might never mend
so let's be sometime lovers
oh baby that's when my poor heart broke up

[Chorus]
Well if you got a girl and you want her for your wife you got to treat her good and love her all your life.

  33. Adrienne Waithe

    I am here in 2019 to declare every aspect of this song perfect! From one of the greatest artists of all time, the lyrics, the voices (all Marvin), the instruments (that sax)! I've been hearing this song and album for 40+ years (!), and each time I hear something new, deeper. RIP Marvin, we will never forget you.

    Ah now I see you're coming straight to the point
    You say the more you get baby

    Ah, the more you want me
    Yeah, darling you're not wasting my time
    What I see baby is so hard to find
    Although you've been all over town baby

    Having your affairs, I still have to accept you back
    Angel though you're promiscuous I don't mind a bit

  47. jamele hampton

    My Favorite Marvin album

  48. Starby Star

    This song is one of the best songs I've ever endured! Not too many people understand realness they want to play elementary games. Baby you've wasted enough time 40 years both of our spouses are deceased we made love to this song many many years ago so please don't tell me this was just for old time sake. Are we going to do this or not? You've been all over and I've told you; U are where it's at hope you are feeling the same way that we felt way back then so we can end this chapter together. We have more years behind than ahead! Much Love And Respect 4 Ever

  63. Foster Smith

    Every song on the LP was playable. At parties we would put on the LP or 8 track and let it rip. Nobody ever complain when it continued to play throughout the night.

  64. Cathy Johnson

  65. blessedodele

  67. Phil Rockwell

    Smooth as can be

  68. PJ Mills

    The Vocals, The Production, The Words, The Greatest Singer Ever!! Rest In Paradise Marvin!!

  69. Starby Star

    Hell Lets Get An Understanding You Are Not Wasting My Time @ All Love

  70. UNC

    All time King of background vocal arrangements!!!! Far back as Baby I’m for real and the bells by the originals. All Marvin on those! But on this track Marvin has these dual storylines going on between the lead and BG vocals... man he was a beast. And NO THATS NOT JAMES JAMERSON ON THE BASS! I think that’s Wilton Fender but I may be wrong. It’s definitely a Jamerson bass line. After What’s going on basslines we’re written in the Jamerson style that Marvin loved so much. Jamison play the way that Marvin did background vocals. Always counter to the melody. 2 songs in one.

  71. UNC

    At the end... Well if you got a girl... + Allll the way all around...+ Wahhhh + I love you... + wooo ah Hoooo... + The bass player committing MURDER on the track... Alll the way girl around... Sensory overload!

  72. UNC

    This album was magical to me back in 76. By the time this song went off I had goosebumps all over. I was the king of mentally isolating every track and would amaze my friends by sounding out what Marvin and the band was laying down. Down to the finger snaps. The horn and flute harp glissando on the vamp (repetitive loop that the song finishes with) used to overwhelm me. Especially when the weed was good lol

  73. Jonz Xvi

    G herbo sampled this!

  74. Anna Garber

    This album came out when I had my son
    Now he's a bad ass bass player and plays all this music here in Vegas
    This was a great album

  75. v jary

    never get tired to listening to this, pure class

  76. Cher Johnson

    This is to Nona Gaye Nona Gaye my Cher me and you went to school together anniversary for your dad

  77. donald frierson

    A masterpiece if ever there was one

  78. Mara Wolynski

    There will never be another Marvin Gaye. The greatest that ever was.

  79. pifflepockle

    Still amuses me that Frankie's wife is from Aberdeen

  80. Uplifttherace

    “I still got accept you back angel...Tho you’re promiscuous”. Wow!!! You can’t write words like that unless you lived that!!!!❣️👊🏾

  81. Tim Johnson

    THE BEST OF THE BEST, THIS IS THE ONE THAT'S MORE LUST, COULD'NT CONTROL YOUR PROMISCUOUS LOVER BUT YOU STILL WANTED TO SPEND YOUR TIME WITH THEM EVEN THOUGH IT MENT MORE TO YOU THAN THEM, THAT'S WHY THEY KEPT RUNNING AWAY.

  82. Ademola Ade

    FOR THE LEGEND ONLY INCOMPARABLE FOR EVER ND EVER

  83. Rick Allen

    I must say this Robin Thicke voice has the most sound as Marvin than any artist naturally which i believe makes him most attracted to Marvin motown sound.

  84. Rickey Gee TV

    It is a great song, but I had a hard time following the direction that he was going with it. It was all over the place. Maybe that's just me.

  85. Positive Praise Promoter

    Listen to this daily✌🏾

  86. MY QUEEN ima give my dumass opinion cause

    Verse 1]
    Oh, if you want to do it, let's get it on
    But how you going to act this time around?
    Before we take it off down to the skin
    Let's get an understanding
    Girl you didn't understand my philosophy
    You did not understand
    You just ran away from me
    Oh I miss you baby
    Oh I miss you baby, oh I miss you
    You're the best I ever had
    You're so bad baby, but I must like you like that
    Although you won't let me control this or that
    I still find you're where it's at
    Ah, now I see you're coming straight to the point
    You say the more you get baby, ah, the more you want me
    Yeah darling you're not wasting my time
    What I see baby is so hard to find
    Although you've been all over town baby
    Having your affairs I still have to accept you back
    Angel though you're promiscuous, I don't mind a bit
    Because you're still the greatest lay, even when you're miles away

    [Verse 2]
    Girl if you run away again
    Surely my heart would never mend
    Don't tell me the love we made
    Was just for old times sake
    Staying up waitin' for you come home at night
    Was just so hard to take
    She said that pain might never mend
    So let's be sometime lovers
    Oh, baby that's when my poor heart broke up

    [Verse 3]
    Well if you got a girl and you want her for your wife
    You got to treat her good and love her all your life
    If you got a pretty girl and you want her for your wife
    You got to treat her good and love her all your life
    And if you got a girl and you want her for your wife
    You got to treat her good and love her all your life

    My favourite song in the Album. It was tough picking the winner but this song is one of Marvin's best songs.

  93. William Bryant

    Any artist that's tryed to do Marvin songs have failed miserably.

  94. Skeet Pearson
