Where Did Our Love Go - Song Lyrics

  • Written by the great Motown songwriting team of Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier, & Edward Holland Jr.
  • These songwriters penned more than a dozen #1 hits while at Motown, including hits for The Four Tops, The Temptations, The Isley Brothers, and Marvin Gaye
  • Originally performed by The Supremes, (Diana Ross, Mary Wilson, & Florence Ballard)
  • The song was the first of 12 #1 Hits for The Supremes, going to #1 in July of 1964
  • Ironically, the song was originally written for The Marvelettes, but they considered it to "light" to be a serious hit
  • Berry Gordy. president of Motown Records, insisted that The Supremes record the song, over their objections
  • Altogether The Supremes scored 33 Top 40 hits over 13 years
  • The Supremes were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1988
  • Oracle Band performs this song as part of a Supremes Medley, so we do not perform the full length version of the song

Baby baby
Baby, don't leave me
Oh, please don't leave me
All by myself

I've got this burnin', burnin', yearnin'
Feelin' inside me
Ooh, deep inside me
And it hurts so bad

You came into my heart (baby baby)
So tenderly
With a burnin' love (baby baby)
That stings like a bee (baby baby)

Now that I surrender (baby baby)
So helplessly,
You now wanna leave (baby baby)
Ooh, you wanna leave me (baby baby)

Ooh, baby baby baby,
Where did our love go?
Oh, don't you want me? (baby baby)
Don't you want me no more? (baby baby)
Ooh, baby

Baby baby,
Where did our love go?
And all your promises (baby baby)
Of a love forever more? (baby baby)

I've got this burnin', burnin', yearnin'
Feelin' inside me
Ooh, deep inside me (baby baby)
And it hurts so bad (baby baby)

Before you won my heart, (baby baby)
You were a perfect guy
But now that you got me, (baby baby)
You wanna leave me behind (baby baby)

Ooh, baby baby baby,
Baby, don't leave me
Oh, please don't leave me (baby baby)
All by myself (baby baby)
