This major Marv Johnson hit (number ten pop, 1959) should have been credited to Motown; it was produced and co-written by Berry Gordy Jr. Marv was a Detroiter who cut in the same studios with the same musicians as the artists actually signed to Tamla Records, and he toured and did shows with the Tamla artists. But Marv struck a deal with United Artists Records when they licensed his first hit, "Come to Me," and he wouldn't get on Motown officially until the mid-'60s. This giant took off on R&B/soul radio and crossed pop. Women loved the lyrics, which really are more appropriate from the feminine perspective. It's possible this was intended for Mabel John, who Berry also produced, and shopped the acetates to United Artist, but they never released anything on her, and Marv may have gotten the song by default. The lyrics simply say you may not be well off or good looking, but you got what it takes for me.
