Lyrics | Lovin’ You | Minnie Riperton

Lovin’ you is easy cause you’re beautiful
Makin’ love with you is all i wanna do
Lovin’ you is more than just a dream come true
And everything that i do is out of lovin’ you
La la la la la la la… do do do do do

No one else can make me feel

Stay with me while we grow old

And we will live each day in springtime
Cause lovin’ you has made my life so beautiful
And every day my life is filled with lovin’ you

Lovin’ you i see your soul come shinin’ through
And every time that we oooooh
I’m more in love with you
La la la la la la la… do do do do do

FACTS ABOUT THE SONG

“Lovin’ You” is a 1975 hit single by Minnie Riperton. The song became a #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 on April 5,1975, #2 in the UK, and #3 on the R&B charts in the US. The song is especially noteworthy due to the unusually high pitches that Riperton reaches during the song. One year after the song’s release, Riperton was diagnosed with terminal cancer. She died on July 12, 1979.

It was the fourth single from the album Perfect Angel (1974). The song is notable for Riperton’s use of the whistle register. While it is believed that “Lovin’ You” was the first song to reach number one without the help of a percussion instrument, “Yesterday” by The Beatles accomplished this feat ten years earlier.

According to the liner notes from Riperton’s compilation CD Petals, the melody for “Lovin’ You” was created as a distraction for her daughter (Maya Rudolph) when she was a baby so that Minnie and her husband Richard could hang out. Maya was in the studio with her mother on the day the song was recorded and Riperton can be heard singing her daughter’s name at the end of the song.
