The Marvelettes

The Marvelettes were an all-girl group who achieved popularity in the early to mid-1960s. They consisted of schoolmates Gladys Horton, Katherine Anderson (later Katherine Anderson Schnaffer), Georgeanna Tillman (later Georgeanna Tillman-Gordon), Juanita Cowart (later Juanita Cowart Motley) and Georgia Dobbins, who was replaced by Wanda Young (later Wanda Rogers) prior to the group signing their first deal. The group was the first major successful act of Motown Records after The Miracles and were its first significant successful girl group on the label's early years after the release of the number-one single, "Please Mr. Postman", one of the first number-one singles recorded by an all-female vocal group and the first by a Motown recording act. more »

Here I am baby, the one who swore to never yield
Here I am baby, the one who swore to play the field
Said I wouldn't let no man tie me down, not a single one now
Wasn't gonna give my heart to a mother's son now
Many a day I proudly stated, the man for me ain't been created

But here I am baby, the one who was so love-defiant
Here I am baby, the one who was so self-reliant
Said I wouldn't need men or nothin' else; I'd be independent
Make a fortune all my own, I'd know how to spend it
I'd be so stationary, love would be unnecessary
But here I am

Here I am, baby baby baby, you want me and I do concede
Here I am, baby baby baby, I find you're what I really need
Say you've got me hangin' on a string, don't you let me drop now
Since you started lovin' me, don't you ever stop now
Don't wanna be loved by another, I ain't goin' another further

Here I am, baby baby baby, take me 'cause I'm yours alone
Here I am, baby baby baby, yours to call your very own
