[1972]
Scritta da Ezra Bolton, Marilyn McLeod, Mel Bolton e Robert Gordy
Una canzone presente in molte compilation successive alla morte di Marvin Gaye, avvenuta nel 1984 per mano del padre Marvin Pentz Gay Sr.
Il brano doveva però fare parte di un album, "You're the Man", che rimase nei cassetti della Motown e che è stato riesumato solo di recente per essere pubblicato lo scorso 29 marzo.
Testo ripreso da Genius

You're the Man
Oh, the world's situation should be Rated X, Rated X
Said, the world's situation should be Rated X, yeah Rated X
Listen people!

Not only in the movie shows
Take a look outside it's where the truth is really told
It's life in living color
Fighting, killing and dope dealing, it's everywhere

What about the crime? Rated X
What about the killing, fighting, stealing everywhere?
They let the children see life destroyed
But they won't let them see its making
Oh what happened to God's creation?

The one thing that really bothers me the most
Is how we calmly take the lives of other folk
The world today is in a grave situation
Dirty water we can't drink, dirty air, it's so unfair
Oh, I know something is missing all over the world
Oh, Rated X, ooh, Rated X, ooh, Rated X baby
I know something is missing all over the world

Oh, the world's situation should be Rated X, Rated X
Said, the world's situation should be Rated X, yeah Rated X
Listen people!

What about the crime? Rated X
What about the killing, fighting, stealing everywhere?
They let the children see life destroyed
But they won't let them see its making
Oh what happened to God's creation?

Where's the love? Where's the peace?
Where's the joy? Where's the hope for us all?
Love has been Rated X
Hate is all the way Rated X

Oh, the world's situation should be Rated X, Rated X
Said, the world's situation should be Rated X, yeah Rated X
Listen people!
