I'm Gettin Ready

This song is by The Impressions and appears on the album We're A Winner (1968).

Some people wonder why they never see
Me with any girl, alone, and they say
Here he comes he's the one
He should be out having fun
There's surely some girl
Who'll like him some way

But what they don't know
For they come and they go
And with true love you must be prepared
And I'm gettin' ready (he's gettin' ready)
I'm gettin' ready (he's gettin' ready)

I wish to be everything
For the girl of my dream
And when she comes
She'll know what I mean
And say boy I'm ready
Truly I know I got to get ready (he's gettin' ready)

I used to be like all the others constantly
Flirting with any girl with any name
But like treason finally, it all caught back up with me
And I'd never know there'd be such pain
I'd fallen head over heels
The thought of her gave me chills
And as she turned me down
It was like falling rain

I just wasn't ready (he wasn't ready)
I wasn't ready (he wasn't ready)

I wish to be everything
For the girl of my dreams
And when she comes
She'll know what I mean
And say boy you ready
Truly I know, I've got to get ready (he's gettin' ready)
Woohoo better get ready (he's gettin' ready)
Sure I know, I got to get ready (he's gettin' ready)
Woohoo
