About You're My Everything

"You're My Everything" is a 1967 single recorded by The Temptations for the Gordy (Motown) label. It is the first of three singles (and four songs) to be co-written for the group by Motown songwriter Roger Penzabene. It reached number three on the U. S. R&B chart and number six on the U. S. Pop chart. It would be the third single from the group's 1967 album The Temptations with a Lot o' Soul. This is one of the small handful of A-sides led by Eddie Kendricks since David Ruffin (who leads on the bridge and ad-libs on the outro) became the Temptations' lead singer, the last one was the 1966 song "Get Ready". As the song's main narrator, Kendricks tells his girl just how much she really means to him. Now, I was blessed the day I found you, Gonna build my whole world around you, You're everything good girl, and you're all that matters to meThe single is backed by a cover of The Miracles' "I've Been Good To You", also led by Kendricks. As such, it is one of the handful of singles by The Temptations where both sides charted (it peaked at 24 on the Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 charts).

You surely must know magic, girl, 'cause you changed my life
It was dull and ordinary
But you made it sunny and bright
I, I was blessed the day I found you, gonna build my whole world around you
You're ev'rything good, girl and you're all that matters to me
 
When my way was dark and troubles were near
Your love provided the light so I couldn't see, girl 
Just knowing your love was near when times were bad 
Kept the world from closing in on me, girl
I was blessed the day I found you, gonna build my whole world around you
You're ev'rything good, girl and you're all that matters to me
 
You're part of ev'ry thought I think each day
Your name is in ev'ry phrase my lips say
Ev'ry dream I dream is about you
Honey I couldn't live without you
Baby, baby, baby, you're my ev'rything
You're my ev'rything
Yes, you are, you're my ev'rything
Girl, you're the girl I sing about in ev'ry love song I sing
(You're my everything)
You're my winter, baby, my summer, my fall and spring
(You're my everything)
I was blessed the day I found you, gonna build my whole world around you
You're ev'rything good, girl and you're all that matters to me
 
You're my ev'rything
You're my everything
You're my ev'rything
You're my everything
 
You're my ev'rything
Oh, you're my ev'rything
You're my ev'rything
You're my ev'rything
