Diana Ross - I’m still waiting
Tekst en muziek: Deke Richards
(1971)






I remember when
I was five and you were ten, boy
You knew that I was shy
So, you teased and made me cry
But I loved you



Then one day you came
You told me you were leaving
You gave your folks the blame
And made me cry again
When you said:



“Little girl
Please, don’t wait for me
Wait patiently for love
Someday it will surely come
Ohoh, little girl
Please, don’t wait for me
Wait patiently for love
Someday it will surely come”



And I’m still waiting
Ohohohohoh
I’m waiting
Ohohohohoh
Oh, still waiting



I’m just a fool
Oh, I’m a fool
I’m just a fool to keep waiting
To keep waiting
I’m just a fool
For you
I’m just a fool



Oh, I’m waiting
I’m just a fool
I’m still waiting
I’m just a fool to keep waiting
For love
I’m just a fool
For you
I’m just a fool



Then someone finally came
He told me that he loved me
I put him off with lies
He could see, I had no eyes
So, he left me
Once again alone
Like a child without her playmate
I had to face the truth
I was still in love with you
But you said:



“Little girl
Please, don’t wait for me
Wait patiently for love
Someday it will surely come
Ohoh, little girl
Please, don’t wait for me
Wait patiently for love
Someday it will surely come”



And I’m still waiting
Ohohohohoh
Love has never shown his face
Since the day you walked out that door
Ohohohohoh
You filled my life with empty space
Come back
Can’t you see, it’s you I’m waiting for



I’m just a fool
Don’t you know, I’m waiting
I’m just a fool to keep waiting
Oh, I’m waiting
I’m just a fool
For love
I’m just a fool



For you
I’m just a fool
I miss you
I’m just a fool to keep waiting
Oh, I’m waiting
I’m just a fool
Come on back, boy
I’m just a fool



Come back
I’m just a fool
Come back, come back boy
I’m just a fool to keep waiting
Oh, I need you
I’m just a fool
Ohoh, and I want you
I’m just a fool



That’s what my friends say
I’m just a fool
I’m a fool
I’m just a fool to keep waiting
Well, I’m still waiting
I’m just a fool
For you
I’m just a fool
