The song's lyrics feature its narrator pleading for a second chance with his departing lover, opening with the determined statement \"I know you wanna leave me/but I refuse to let you go.\" The narrator goes on to state that he \"ain't too proud to beg\" or \"plead\" his lover to stay. The Temptations were pleased with the composition, feeling that the song's blues-inspired melody and James Brown-esque horn stabs would help to update their sound. David Ruffin was tapped to sing lead on the song, and Whitfield submitted the mix to Motown's Quality Control department.
