"You're All I Need To Get By"

(As recorded by Aretha Franklin/Atlantic)
ASHFORD & SIMPSON

You're all I need to get by
Like sweet morning dew
I took one look at you
And it was plain to see you were my destiny
With arms open wide
I threw away my pride
I'll sacrifice for you
Dedicate my life to you
I'll go where you live
Always there in time of need
And when I lose my wind
You'll be there to push me up the hill
There's no, no looking back for us
We got love sure enough that's enough
You're all, you're all I need to get by
Like an eagle protects his nest
For you I'll do my best
Stand by you like a tree
And dare anybody to tramp on me
Darling in you I found
Strength when I was so down
Don't know what's in store
But together we can open any door
Just to do what's good for you
And inspire you a little higher
I know you can make a man out a soul that didn't have a goal
Cause we, we got the right foudation
And real love and determination
You're all, you're all I want don't you know I do
All, all the joys under the sun wrapped up in to one
You're all I need, you're all I need
You're all I need, oh, to get by.
