Marvin Gaye was één van Motown's grootste artiesten. Hij was een pionier in de zwarte R&B en Soul muziek. Marvin is een begaafde, visionaire en creatieve muzikant. Naast politieke en sociale onderwerpen was er vaak een sfeer van erotiek te vinden in de nummers van Gaye. Het hoogtepunt was zonder twijfel Let's Get it On uit 1973.

Verder maakte hij hits als: I Want You, I Heard It Through The Grapevine, Sexual Healing, Got To Give It Up en Your Precious Love.


You're all I need to get by, aha

Like the sweet morning dew (You're all I need)
I took one look at you (To get by)
And it was plain to see (Aha)
You were my destiny

With my arms open wide (You're all I need)
I threw away my pride (To get by)
I'll sacrifice for you (Aha)
Dedicate my life to you (Oh)

I will go where you lead (Come on, babe)
Always there in time of need (Oh)
And when I lose my will
You'll be there to push me up the hill

There's no
No looking back for us
We got love
Sure 'nough, that's enough
You're all
You're all I need to get by

You're all I need to get by (Oh, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah, listen)

Like an eagle protects his nest (You're all I need)
For you I'll do my best (To get by)
Stand by you like a tree (Aha)
And dare anybody to try and move me

Darling, in you I found (You're all I need)
Strength where I was torn down (To get by)
Don't know what's in store (Aha)
But together we can open any door (Oh, babe)

Just to do what's good for you (Come on, darling)
And inspire you a little higher
I know you can make a man
Out of a soul that didn't have a goal

Cause we
We got the right foundation
And with love
And determination
You're all
You're all I want to strive for and do a little more
You're all the joys under the sun wrapped up into one
You're all, you're all I need
You're all I need
You're all I need (Oh)
To get by
