That's definitely Come and Get It, a song originally written and recorded by Paul McCartney of The Beatles. It was actually written for the 1969 film The Magic Christian, but the version that made it popular was the one by the group Badfinger.
Despite the fact that the original recording only featured Paul McCartney, Come and Get It is featured on several Beatles bootlegs, including The Beatles Anthology 3 which was released in 1996.

Badfinger's Come and Get It

Badfinger's version of Come an Get It is by far the most famous version of the song. It was released later in 1969, and reached number 7 in the American charts and number 4 in the United Kingdom's charts.

"Come And Get It" was the name of a song composed by Paul McCartney for the film The Magic Christian, and made popular by the group Badfinger. McCartney recorded the demo first while with the beatles but tracked all the instruments himself. He later gave it to Badfinger and produced it for them.

There was another version brought out on the Major Minor label by another group at a similar time to Bad Finger. It wasn't as popular, but I liked it better. Called "If you want it"
