Stevie Wonder - I Wanna Talk To You Lyrics




M-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-m
Lord, Lordy, Lordy
Standing here on my own side
Waitin' Fo' the floor
Your world's movin' fast
But still ends up a bore
Come on give me a little room na
Do you have to take it all
Yeah that's the way it is I guess
Then you're born with nothin' at all

Uh- Uh- Uh- Uh- Uh- Uh- Uh
I wanna talk to you
I wanna talk to you
Hey boy don't feel my world's untrue
Yeah, I wanna talk to you
My world can be true
I wanna talk to you

Pick up my life at the table
Read about the way I could be
But I know I just ain't able
So I read about the real me
Who can I blame
For the way I am
I ain't never had one soul to help me
So I don't give a.......

Uh- Uh- Uh- Uh- Uh- Uh- Uh
Watch that boy, watch that
I heard you thinkin'
I wanna talk to you
I wanna talk to you
Don't feel my world's untrue
Yeah, boy I wanna talk to you
My world can be true
But you gotta find out what to do
I wanna talk to you sonny beau

Gotta woman that lov' me
Feed me beans ev'ry night
Twelve babies look up at me
Wid Big grey hungry eyes
Oh but I just can't complain
You see ya, said I ain't allowed
Oh but pretty soon will come a change
When I gain the biggest mouth

Uh- Uh- Uh- Uh- Uh- Uh- Uh
I wanna talk to you
I wanna talk to you
Don't feel my world's untrue
Yeah boy , I wanna talk to you
My world can be true
I'm a show you what to do
I wanna talk to you

Hey don't wanna talk to you
What you mean by that boy
I don't wanna talk to you
I recognize you as being a human being
I've been listening to you for 250 thousand years
I called you Steve when you were amongst my friends
Don't wanna talk to you
I wanna talk to you
Too late
Naw boy
Too late I can't wait
Naw
Don't wanna talk to you

You can have dinner with me next week
and after that you can moe my lawn
Hey don't wanna talk to you naw
Understand me
You can't tell me nothin' white man
Try to understand yourself
Oh I don't wanna say a word to you
Do ya understand me
Naw I don't hear ya - I wanna talk
Too late
Naw it ain't
Can't wait
Yes, ya can
Don't wanna talk to you

Hey I don't need you for nothin'
Come on Stevie let's talk na
Don't wanna talk to you

You know I'm ya friend

Don't wanna talk to you
Un-Un-Understand me na

Don't care about your sake
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah Stevie
I don't wanna talk to you
I guess I can't say N-N-Nothin' to you

Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, Lord
Naw, Naw, Naw, Naw, Naw
Naw, Naw, Naw, Naw, Naw

Stevie Wonder I Wanna Talk To You Comments
  1. Timothy Hardaway

    Boy I remember this song Steve recorded this at Motown on Davison street

  2. Roosevelt McCarter

    From The LP "Where I'm Coming From."

  3. darganx

    This is all about Berry Gordy, he's taking the piss haha 'Hey boy I heard you thinking' lol

    Also done in a late-Beatles style too, very clever!

  4. dr troy turner

    This song caught me off guard. Thought Stevie was just clowning, but then it turns left and gets deep. Hmmm? That's Stevie for you.

  5. INDIGENOUS SOUL

    This was a protest song with an double entendre...1 he sopke in the Social injustice going on & 2 he was Battling Barry Gordy 4 Control of his Musical output his Contract was comming up 4 renewal the Other Voice was both Barry Gordy & the Man! it was a POWER STRUGGLE! I'm not articulate but I hope it was clear enough.

  6. Jon Martinez

    Addressed to Barry Gordy

  7. Anthonyf Armenta

    9th wonder sample on bladey Mae

  8. Ras T Asheber

    This song was an indictment of the social setting and the perpetual inequity and mental slavery evident in America in the late '60s and which still persists at PRESENT in a subtler form. Music is the food... and one can choose whether to eat nourishing meals or junk food since we live in a "free" society.
    The present generation (black & white) wear blinders (like thoroughbreds) and is too busy "holding up their pants... "

  9. timmy841212

    It's both that. I think the lyric "I'm gonna take my share" could be equal to equal opportunity AND getting his freedom from Motown's control. That meaning makes sense. Oh yeah Syreeta Wright wrote the lyrics to this lol

  10. Rock2HAL

    @Rock2HAL So this song has to do with slavery and/or racism not Motown. Hope this helps! :)

    Nautilus1972

    How would you know?

  11. Rock2HAL

    @supated2005 Actually it has nothing at all to do w/Motown . 'Cause he says "You can't tell me nothin' white man" in the song and on wikipedia it also states it is about racism and Stevie does both characters! I tried posting the link but YouTube won't let me but if you Google it comes up (I know 'cause I tried lol). Even before I looked it up I thought it was about racism but wanted proof to back it up and found it. :)

  12. timmy841212

    I do hear some anger in Stevie's voice that could relate to his situation with Motown.

  13. motowninvestor

    I think this song was about other record companies coming to Stevie with deals. Thankfully, Stevie stayed with Berry Gordy.

  14. Teddy Sanderson

    Yeah this song was supposed to be about Stevie's views on his situation at Motown as he was turning 21. His contract with Motown tied him to them until he became a legal adult (21). then came the biggest deal Motown had signed (nuff respect Stevie!!!)
