Ray Parker Jr. - You Can't Change That Lyrics




Honey, I'll always love you
I promise I'll always love you
'Cause I think the whole world of you
And you can't change that, no, no

There's nothing you can do or say
I thought about this for many a day
And my mind's made up to feel this way
And you can't change that

'Cause you're the only one I love
And you can't change that
You're the only one I need
And you can't change that
(You're the one I love)

You're the only one I love
And you can't change that
You're the only one I need
And you can't change that

Now you can try if you want to, whoa

You can change your telephone number
And you can change your address too
But you can't stop me from loving you
No, you can't change that, no, no

You can change the color of your hair
And you can change the clothes you wear
But you'll never change the way I care
No, you can't change that

'Cause you're the only one I love
And you can't change that
(You're the one I love)
You're the only one I need
And you can't change that

You're the only one I love
And you can't change that
You're the only one I need
And you can't change that
(You're the one I love, girl)

Now you can try if you want to
(Try me, baby, whoa)
No, you can't change that
(You're the one I love)
You can try but you can't change that
(You're the one)

Now you can change your telephone number
You can change your address too
But you can't stop me from loving you
No, you can't change that, mmm

'Cause you're the only one I love
And you can't change that
(You're the one I love)
You're the only one I need
And you can't change that
(I need you, baby)

You're the only one I love
And you can't change that
(You may change a dollar bill)
You're the only one I need
(But let me tell you one thing)
And you can't change that
(You won't change the way I feel)

You're the only one I love
And you can't change that
(I say my heart tells me how I feel)
You're the only one I need
(It lets me know)
And you can't change that
(It lets me know my love is real)

You're the only one I love
(No, you can't change that)
And you can't change that
(You can't, you can't change our love, girl)
You're the only one I need
And you can't change that (oh, baby)

You're the only one I love
(Well, I love, I love)
And you can't change that
(I need you)
You're the only one I need
(I love, I love)
And you can't change that
(I need you)

You're the only one I love
And you can't change that

  1. Leo Leo

    Best lead backing vocals,Great love song,Takes me back in time,

  2. Kevin Edmonds

    Ray Parker Jr. is one baaaad dude!!!! This song is MAGICAL, like most songs from back then. Somewhere along the way, the magic died ☹. New music has NOTHING on this stuff!!!

  3. Veronica Chatmon

    Well my bad! I just found out his name is Arnell Carmichael and The Raydio Show can be followed on Facebook. I guess they still perform. No relation to Ray Parker Jr.

  4. amanda davis

    Songs like this are what made 1979 one of the best years in music.

  5. Veronica Chatmon

    The industry put Ray in front for sales and this song is legendary and I still love it. I don’t even know the of the singer behind him. Help?

  6. Veronica Chatmon

    Everybody an understanding but that was his brother’s song! Look at it all! Well I thought that was his brother.

    Veronica Chatmon

    Look at it! Do ya homework!

  7. DJ Evis

    I saw these dude’s in 1978. I was surprised at how tall Ray Parker was. He looked like a basketball player instead a musician.

  8. William Henry Gwynn Plesner

    Hermosa cancion, siempre lo escuchare, me trae bellos recuerdos, que magia !!!!!!!!

  9. James Willis

    One of my fav love songs, I added it to a play list I made for my girlfriend

    8 years old when this was released , I love The fact that I grew up listening to amazing real and true music the youth of today unfortunately will never know that feeling with the ridiculous crap now filling the airwaves.

  35. grape512

    In the '70s the radio stations I listened to in Southern California made it seem like Ray Parker Jr was the only one doing lead vocals. They always said that the songs were by Ray Parker Jr and they didn't mention Raydio or Jerry Knight. I wonder if the band name "Raydio" confused people? If the radio DJ said, "That was Raydio!" Listeners could be thinking, "DUH! Of course we're listening to a RADIO." Also, I ran into Ray Parker Jr near a ski resort in Mammoth a long time ago. I didn't get to talk to him, but he knew I recognized him because I kept turning my head to stare at him and he was amused. lol

  36. Angela fisher

    My God, Ray Parker jr was gorgeous!!! Call me shallow, but that's how I got into Ray's music.

  37. coachhiggs

    I miss the 70's every day...what a great time to be alive...we hung out all night and never worried about getting in trouble. The parents did their thing and we did ours...and we all turned out fine.

  38. Natte Scott

    Love this song...love the voice...and that smile!!!

    And you can't change that

    'Cause you're the only one I love
    And you can't change that
    You're the only one I need

  92. ToyotaGuy1971

    What a classic!

  93. The Master E Brooks

    Before this wicked and corrupt treasonous government fully unveiled itself as the devil at work it was songs like this in the music industry that acknowledged the original purpose of why God made male and female. Unlike the stuff you hear today it ain't sounding like it's all sick twisted and crazy.

  94. karameldreem

    This song is 40 years old.

  95. Matt Keesee

    Magic....i looooove this song

  96. Paul Hue

    Long live real music..

    1979 was a fantastic year, and you can't change that.
