Song Lyric Sunday Theme: Find/Found- “Baby, Now That I’ve Found You”

“Baby, now that I’ve found you I can’t let you go…”

“Baby, Now That I’ve Found You” was released by The Foundations in 1967 as their debut single.  It became a Number 1 hit on the British and Canadian charts and topped out in the U.S. as Number 11 on the Billboard Top 100.

Written by Tony Macaulay and John MacLeod, the song has been covered by many recording artists.  The version by Alison Krauss became a country hit in 1995 and was featured in the Australian comedy film The Castle.

My favorite version is the original by The Foundations, of course, because the 60s was the best decade ever!

 

Baby, now that I’ve found you, I can’t let you go
I’ll build my world around you, I need you so
Baby, even though you don’t need me
You don’t need me

Baby, now that I’ve found you, I can’t let you go
I’ll build my world around you, I need you so
Baby, even though you don’t need me
You don’t need me

Baby, baby, since first we met
I knew in this heart of mine, (I wanna tell you…)
The love we had could not be bad
Play it right and bide my time

Spent a lifetime looking for somebody
To give me love like you
Now you’ve told me that you wanna leave me
(Darling, I just can’t let you)

Baby, now that I’ve found you, I can’t let you go
I’ll build my world around you, I need you so
Baby, even though you don’t need me
You don’t need me

Baby, now that I’ve found you, I can’t let you go
I’ll build my world around you, I need you so
Baby, even though you don’t need me
You don’t need me

Spent a lifetime looking for somebody
To give me love like you
Now you’ve told me that you wanna leave me
(Darling, I just can’t let you)

Baby, now that I’ve found you, I can’t let you go
I’ll build my world around you, I need you so
Baby, even though you don’t need me
You don’t need me

Baby, now that I’ve found you, I can’t let you go
I’ll build my world around you, I need you so
Baby, even though you don’t need me
