“Got To Get You Into My Life” {Lennon-McCartney}

I was alone, I took a ride I didn’t know what I would find there
Another road where maybe I could see another kind of mind there
Ooh, then I suddenly see you
Ooh, did I tell you I need you
Every single day of my life
You didn’t run, you didn’t lie
You knew I wanted just to hold you
And had you gone you knew in time we’d meet again
For I had told you
Ooh, you were meant to be near me
Ooh, and I want you hear me
Say we’ll be together every day
Got to get you into my life
What can I do, what can I be
When I’m with you I want to stay there
If I’m true I’ll never leave
And if I do I know the way there
Ooh, then I suddenly see you
Ooh, did I tell you I need you
Every single day of my life
Got to get you into my life
Got to get you into my life
I was alone, I took a ride I didn’t know what I would find there
Another road where maybe
I could see another kind of mind there
Then suddenly I see you
Did I tell you I need you
Every single day?
