  • [Chorus]
    How can I get your love
    When you keep on snatching it back
    Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me girl

    How can I get your love
    When you keep on snatching it back
    That's what I want to know right now girl

    How you expect for me to get it
    When you keep on, doing like that

    You want me, and I want you
    But you're afraid, that I won't be true
    I get your love, in the palm of my hand
    You change your mind, and snatch it back again

    [Chorus]

    How can I get your love
    When you keep on snatching it back
    That's what I want to know, I want to know, I want to know

    How you expect for me to get it
    When you keep on, doing like that

    Some other man, before my time
    Must have loved you, and left you behind

    Now you're afraid, that I'll hurt you
    But I won't do anything, you don't want me to

    So tell me
    How can I get your love
    When you keep on snatching it back
    Oh, I want to know right now, right now girl

    How can I get your love
    When you keep on snatching it back
    You don't have to do me like that, baby

    I want to do
    How can I get your love
    When you keep on snatching it back
    Oh you know I love you baby

    How can I get your love
    When you keep on snatching it back Writer/s: CLARENCE GEORGE CARTER, GEORGE HENRY JACKSON
