EVERY UK NUMBER ONE SONG: ‘Baby Now That I’ve Found You’ – The Foundations

What was the number one song in the UK on 8th November 1967?

British soul band, The Foundations got to number one with Baby Now That I’ve Found You for 2 weeks.

I love a bit of The Foundations and this is a classic of theirs. Baby Now That I’ve Found You was the first single by a multi-racial act to get to number one in the UK. And it’s a goodie. Clem Curtis’ raw vocals along with the upbeat and incredibly catchy melody provides a number one not to be forgotten.

Lyrics

Baby, now that I’ve found you
I can’t let you go
I’ll build my world around you
I need you so
Baby, even though you don’t need me
You don’t need me.
Baby, now that I’ve found you
I can’t let you go
I’ll build my world around you
Baby, baby, since first we met (doot-doot)
I knew in this heart of mine (I want to tell you, doot-doot)
The love we had could not be bad (doot-doot)
Play it right and bide my time
Spent a lifetime looking for somebody
To give me love like you
Now you’ve told me that you want to leave me
Darling, I just can’t let you.
Baby, now that I’ve found you
I can’t let you go
I’ll build my world around you
Baby, now that I’ve found you
I can’t let you go
I’ll build my world around you
Spent a lifetime looking for somebody
To give me love like you
Now you’ve told me that you want to leave me
Darling, I just can’t let you.
Baby, now that I’ve found you
I can’t let you go
I’ll build my world around you
