​Wait A Minute Before You Leave Me

This song is by The Supremes and appears on the album Right On (1970).

Just sixty seconds of your time
To listen to this plea of mine
Don't let your heart be made of stone
Just say the past is bygone
Wait a minute before you leave me
Hold on before you go

I know that I was such a fool
I used your heart just like a tool
I'll be your puppet on a string (puppet on a string)
And, baby, I'll do anything

Turn around
Don't walk out that door
I want you, baby, more than before
Wait a minute before you leave me
Hold on before you go

Oh, oh, wait a minute, baby
(Wait a minute before you leave me)
Hold on (Hold on before you go)
Wait a minute, baby
(Wait a minute before you leave me)
Hold on (Hold on before you go)

If I must beg to keep you by my side
I'm not ashamed to give up my pride
Wait a minute before you leave me
Hold on before you go

I left you standing all alone
You reached for me and I was gone
In other words, I was unwise
And for this I apologize

Baby, please, please, hurry
Say you forgive me
I'm beginning to worry
Wait a minute before you leave me
Hold on before you go

Oh wait a minute, baby, hold on
Wait a minute, baby, hold on
I didn't mean to hurt you, oh, hold on, baby
Wait, wait, wait a minute, baby
Hold on before you go
