  • [Chorus]
    Baby, now that I've found you
    I can't let you go
    I'll build my world around you

    I need you so
    Baby, even though you don't need me
    You don't need me.

    [Chorus]

    Baby, baby, since first we met (doot-doot)
    I knew in this heart of mine (I want to tell you, doot-doot)
    The love we had could not be bad (doot-doot)
    Play it right and bide my time

    Spent a lifetime looking for somebody
    To give me love like you
    Now you've told me that you want to leave me
    Darling, I just can't let you.

    [Chorus: x2]

    Spent a lifetime looking for somebody
    To give me love like you
    Now you've told me that you want to leave me
    Darling, I just can't let you.

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyPer: http://www.oldiesmusic.com/news.htm
    It's been learned that Clem Curtis, lead singer with the Foundations on their 1969 hit, "Baby Now That I Found You*" (#11 in 1968), has died from lung cancer. He was 76...
    Born in Trinidad, Clem came to England when he was 15 and became a professional boxer. He joined a local group, The Ramong Sound as a backup singer but, after many changes he emerged as the lead singer and the group was now called the Foundations. Clem also sang lead on "Back On My Feet Again" (#59 in 1968), but left the group before their 1969 hit, "Build Me Up Buttercup"(where Colin Young sang lead; it peaked at #3)...
    After a solo career, he went on to perform in musicals in London's West End...
    May he R.I.P.
    * Besides the above three records the group had two more Top 100 songs; "n The Bad, Bad Old Days" {#51} and "My Little Chickadee" {#99}, both in 1969.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn December 17th 1967, "Baby, Now That I've Found You" by the Foundations entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #81; and eight weeks later on February 11th, 1968 it peaked at #11 {for 3 weeks} and spent 13 weeks on the Top 100...
    And on November 8th, 1967 it reached #1 {for 2 weeks} on the United Kingdom's Singles chart...
    Between 1967 and 1969 the British group had five records on the Top 100; one made the Top 10, so of course it was their biggest hit, "Build Me Up Buttercup" peaked at #3 {for 3 weeks} on February 16th, 1969.
  • Camille from Toronto, OhWow, this song is simply a classic. I was only 9 years old when it was popular, but I remember loving it then, and still love it today! Never knew the singer was a black man, I thought this group "The Foundations" were similar to "The Lettermen". Love this music, takes me back to the innocent, carefree times of my younger days.
