Youre All I Need To Get By lyrics

Album: Aretha Franklin 30 Greatest Hits

Like sweet morning dew I took one look at you
And it was plain to see you were my destiny
With my arms open wide I threw away my pride
I sacrificed for you, dedicated my life to you
Like I would go where you lead
I'll be right there in time of need
And when I lose my will you'll be there to push me up that hill

There's no looking back for us
We've got each other's love and that's enough
Cause you're all I need to get by (chorus sung in Aretha's typical
"run" fashion)

Like an eagle protects his nest for you I'll do my best
Stand by yiu like a tree and dare anybody who tries to move me
Darlin' in you I've found strength where I was torn down
I don't know what's in store but together we can open any door

Just do what's good for you I'll inspire you a little bit higher
I know you can make a wo-man out of soul that didn't have a goal
Cause we've got the right foundation and with the love
and determination (yes we do)
You're all I need to get by (again, with the chorus Aretha does not
"sing it straight," she ad-libs and improvises into the denoument)
