Gotta Get Away

Listen to the song

Recorded by: The Pleasure Seekers

“GOTTA GET AWAY” WAS WRITTEN IN FALL OF 1968, AS THE PLEASURE SEEKERS STARTED GETTING SERIOUSLY INTO WRITING THEIR OWN ORIGINAL MATERIAL FOR FUTURE RECORDING. A COLLABORATIVE EFFORT BY SUZI, PATTI AND ARLENE, THE SONG WAS RECORDED AS A DEMO AT PIONEER STUDIOS IN DETROIT, 1968, AND BEFORE THE GIRLS LEFT MERCURY RECORDS.

Lyrics

GOTTA GET AWAY
YEAH I GOTTA GET AWAY, HEY I GOTTA GET AWAY, WELL I GOTTA GET AWAY
YA GOTTA LISTEN TO ME BABY, CUZ HERE’S WHERE IT’S AT
HEY I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU’RE DOIN TO ME
I CAN FEEL YOUR LOVIN ALL OVER ME
YOU’RE TURNIN ME BABY EVERY WAY BUT LOOSE
CAN’T YOU SEE BABY IT JUST AIN’T NO USE
YEAH I GOTTA GET AWAY, WELL I GOTTA GET AWAY,
HEY I GOTTA GET AWAY I GOT TO RUN
YA GOTTA LISTEN TO ME BABY, CUZ HERE’S WHERE IT’S AT
YA STOLE MY HEART TOOK MY FEELINS AWAY
I NEED YOUR LOVIN ALL NIGHT AND DAY
GOTTA LEARN TO DO WITHOUT YOU BY MY SIDE
GET A HOLD OF MYSELF GET A HOLD OF MY PRIDE
GOTTA GET AWAY, YEAH I GOTTA GET AWAY, WELL I GOTTA GET AWAY
