Golden Earring - I Need Love Lyrics




Do you ever feel unhappy, don't know what you wanna do
Do you do you get slap happy, give and take a few
Oh I've never been this lonely, somethin' passed me by
I know what I'm missing, and it makes me cry
Hunting for bounty with a treasure map in my hand
And my secretary says she understands in short hand
Take a note, take a note
Did I really float, in my dreamboat
Is it time to try, before it passes me by

I need love, I need love, I need love
Give it to me
Don't deny me love, I need love, I need love
Lots of it
I wanna o.d. on it

I beg your pardon baby, maybe you can help me out
Could you move a little closer
We don't have to shout you see, I'm a desperate guy
You must've heard it all before
Oh you gotta go,- bye bye - Messin' me up some more
Hunting for bounty with a treasure map in my hand
And my secretary says she understands in short hand
Take a note, take a note
Did I really float in my dreamboat
Is it time to try before it passes me by

I need love, I need love, I need love
Give it to me
Don't deny me love
I need love, I need love
Lots of it
I wanna o.d. on love
I need love, I need love
Let me have it
Let me lay my hands on love
I need love, I need love
Come on, don't deny me love
You see, everybody's talking about love

(I need love, I need love)

To boil my eggs, to stretch my legs
To scratch my back, before I hit the sack
I need love and with a little bit of luck
Love and not just a quick
You know what: I need love

Golden Earring I Need Love Comments
  1. kriki65

    Love this solo. Everytime I hear this song, I repeat the solo many times. Saw GE last time December 2016 in ZiggoDome/Amsterdam, they are still a fantastic band!

  2. Joost Van der Valk

    Weer bewijst George dat hij de beste rocker is van het Europese vasteland. En nog steeds nauwelijks (brede) erkenning.

  3. Elke Pluntke

    yes ... damn good live stuff

  4. Gab Van der Velde

    Yes it is

  5. grgoldner

    Off of No Promises No debts I think...wheeew...thanks

  6. dopfelkorn

    @latawie I agree that this is an amazing piece of work. To be quite honest with you... I didn't even know this song until I heard it on the Naked III album. I'm afraid I don't have a studio version to go with it.

  7. Jeffrey Latawiec

    What an amazing rendition of a great song live. You are right...Kooymans' solo is great. They have been playing together for 40 years, look great, and sound even better. Thank God for blessing me with Golden Earring music. I dig them the way I dig Katatonia.Thanx for this upload. Any chance of getting the studio version of this uploaded also?

    Henrik Falkenfleth

    Here you are (the first album I've got with GE just when it came out - been hooked since)

  9. Mr James Music

    does anyone have tabs for that solo?

    Rayboss302

    Mr James Music no tabs.. it’s a jam you know

  10. Robbert Oomen

    Most brilliant acoustic guitar solo I have ever heared or seen. My all time favorit Earring song.

  11. dopfelkorn

    Wist ik het maar... ;-) Ik heb heel wat Earring-nummers liggen, maar deze kende ik zelf nog niet.

  12. Dion Scholten

    Contraband is an album by Dutch hard rock band Golden Earring, released in 1976.

    For the USA, the same recordings were issued under the album title Mad Love the following year (1977). This USA version also had different cover art and song sequence. Additionally the song "Faded Jeans" was omitted and replaced with the track "I Need Love".

    Is dat dit nummer?

    Scott Chambers

    Dion Scholten side 1 of Mad Love is classic

  13. dopfelkorn

    This song is from the Naked 3 album, which is the successor to the Naked Truth and Naked II albums.
