Marvin Gaye (April 2, 1939 – April 1, 1984), born Marvin Pentz Gay, Jr., was an American singer-songwriter and musician whose career spanned more than two decades. Born and raised in Washington, D.C., he was the son of a storefront minister of a local Pentecostal church sect and grew up singing gospel in church revivals as a young child.

If this world were mine, I'd place at your feet
All that I own, you've been so good to me
If this world were mine
I'd give you the flowers, the birds and the bees
For with your love inside me, that would be all I need
If this world were mine
I'd give you anything

If this world were mine, I'd make you a king
With wealth untold, you could have anything
If this world were mine
I'd give you each day so sunny and blue
If you wanted the moonlight, I'd give you that too
If this world were mine
I'd give you anything

Oh baby, you're my consolation
And there's no hesitation
When you want me, honey, just call me

And whoah, you're my inspiration
Yeah, I feel so much sensation
When I'm in your arms, when you squeeze me, whoah

Every sky would be blue
Long as you're lovin' me

Whoa-oa-oah, with you here in my arms life is so wonderful

Whoa-oa-oah, give me plenty lovin', baby
Give me plenty lovin', honey
Keep on lovin' me
Whoa-oa-oah, you know I need you, baby
Reall-really need you, honey
