I guess everybody plays a fool once in their life if they are lucky enough, and on All The Way Round Marvin Gaye played the fool for our enjoyment. This song is not your average one in a million love song about a boy and his girl. In fact, this song is a rarity due to the fact that it shows our hero in simp mode. And as we all know simpin ain’t easy.

In All The Way Round Marvin runs into an old lover that he hasn’t seen in a minute, and he wants to get back with her. The problem is that shorty has been running around town with Issac, Al, and Curtis. But Marvin could care less. Why? Because she had the bomb azz #$%@! We all have been there once in our life, sacrificing our smarts to lay up once again with someone you know is wrong for you. Especially if you run into them after the liquor is in the system.

Well Marvin tries to break it down like “I missed you boo. You are the best I have ever had. Can we get together once again? And if we do please don’t run out on me like you did before. Why? Because my heart may not be able to mend after this one.” Serious simping ain’t it? Well what did Shorty have to say to him? “You know playboy I can’t promise you that I am here to stay, so let’s be sometime lovers!” Cold. Ice cold. But that is life as you move thru it trying to find the one.

Do you wanna do it lets it get it on?
But how you gonna act this time around?
Before I take it off down to the skin
Lets get an understanding
Girl you didn’t understand my philosophy
You did not understand
You just ran away from me

Oh I missed you baby
Ooh I missed you baby, I miss you
You’re the best I ever had
You’re so bad baby
But I must like you like that
Although you won’t let me control this or that
Constantly playin’ this tit for tat

Ah now I see you’re comin’ straight to the point
You say the more you get baby
Ah the more you want me
Yeah darlin’ you’re not wastin’ my time
What I see baby is so hard to find

Although you’ve been all over town baby
Havin’ your affairs I still have to accept you back
Angel though you’re promiscuous
I don’t mind a bit ’cause you’re still the greatest lay
Even when you’re miles away

Girl if you run away again
Surely my heart would never mend
Don’t tell me the love we made
Was just for old time’s sake
Stayin’ up waitin’ for you to come home at night
Was just so hard to take
She said that pain might never mend
So let’s be sometime lovers and
Oh baby that’s when my poor heart broke up

So if you got a girl and you want her for your wife
You got to treat her good and love her all your life
Well if you got a girl and you want her for your wife
You got to treat her good and love her all your life
If you got a girl and you want her for your wife
You got to treat her good and love her all your life
If you got a girl and you want her for your wife
You got to treat her good and love her all your life
Well if you got a girl and you want her for your wife
You got to treat her good and love her all your life
