Diana Ross (The Supremes) - You can’t hurry love
Tekst: Eddie Holland / Muziek: Lamont Dozier en Brian Holland
(1966)






I need love, love
To ease my mind
I need to find, find someone to call mine
But mama said:



“You can’t hurry love
No, you just have to wait”
She said: “Love don’t come easy
It’s a game of give and take
You can’t hurry love
No, you just have to wait
You got to trust, give it time
No matter how long it takes”



But how many heartaches
Must I stand
Before I find a love
To let me live again
Right now the only thing
That keeps me hangin’ on
When I feel my strength, yeah
It’s almost gone
I remember mama said:



“You can’t hurry love
No, you just have to wait”
She said: “Love don’t come easy
It’s a game of give and take”
How long must I wait
How much more can I take
Before loneliness
Will cause my heart, heart to break



No, I can’t bear to live my life alone
I grow impatient for a love to call my own
But when I feel that I, I can’t go on
These precious words keeps me hangin’ on
I remember mama said:



“You can’t hurry love
No, you just have to wait”
She said: “Love don’t come easy
It’s a game of give and take
You can’t hurry love
No, you just have to wait
She said trust, give it time
No matter how long it takes”



No, love, love, don’t come easy
But I keep on waiting
Anticipating for that soft voice
To talk to me at night
For some tender arms
To hold me tight
I keep waiting
I keep on waiting
But it ain’t easy
It ain’t easy
But mama said:



“You can’t hurry love
No, you just have to wait”
She said: “Trust, give it time
No matter how long it takes
You can’t hurry love
No, you just have to wait”
