Lyrics Edit

Victoria:
Huh, ohhh whoa.
Let me tell you now, ooooh.
Everyone else:
Ooooh

Victoria:
When I had you to myself
I didn't want you around
Those pretty faces always made you
Stand out in a crowd
But someone picked you from the bunch
One glance was all it took
Now it's much too late for me
Everyone:
To take a second look

Victoria:
Oh, baby give me one chance
Everyone else:
To show you that I love you
Victoria:
Won't you please let me
Everyone else:
Back in your heart?
Victoria:
Oh, darling I was blind to let you go
Everyone else:
Let you go, baby
Victoria:
But now since I see you in his arms
Everyone else:
I want you back
Victoria:
Yes, I do now
Everyone else:
I want you back
Victoria:
Ooh ooh baby
Everyone else:
I want you back
Victoria:
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Everyone else:
I want you back
Victoria:
Nah nah nah nah

Tryin' to live without your love
Is one long sleepless night
Let me show you girl
That I know wrong from right
Every street you walk on
I leave tear stains on the ground
Followin' the girl I didn't even want around
Let me tell now

Oh, baby, all I need is one more chance
Everyone else:
To show you that I love you
Victoria:
Won't you please let me
Everyone else:
Back in your heart?
Victoria:
Oh, darling I was blind to let you go
Everyone else:
Let you go, baby
Victoria:
But now since I see you in his arms
Ohh

Bum bum bum bum-bum bum bum bum

In his arms
Everyone else:
