Oh, we close our eyes and refuse to see

Life’s every day corruption

Even the doubters cannot hide

The pain from war’s destruction

 

So I welcome sleep at the end of day

With a prayer that there’ll be no war

But each morning I wake only to find

Things are worse than the day before

 

The world is full of problems

What can we do to solve them?

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

 

I’ll try, you’ll try

Maybe we’ll all get by

I’ll try, you’ll try

Maybe we’ll all get by

 

Bam-bam-bam, bam-bam, bam-bam

Bam-bam-bam, bam-bam, bam-bam

 

Oh, I remember when grass used to be a thing

To water and cut for Dad

But now I find as a form of slave

People say it can hurt you bad

 

Oh, I also found in these changing times

The love is a thing of the past

Save the children from these people

One more shot could be their last

 

There surely is a problem

What can we do to solve them?

Hmm, hmm.

 

I’ll try, you’ll try

Maybe we’ll all get by

I’ll try, you’ll try

Maybe we’ll all get by

 

Dilili-li-li-li-li-li

Ba-bam-bam, bam-bam, bam-bam

Dilili-li-li-li-li-li

Ba-bam-bam, bam-bam, bam-bam (repeat)

 

Oh, crowds of people running through the streets

With signs showing discontent

Oh, “Stop the war!”, “Lower taxes!” “Cut down unemployment!” Yeah!

 

But to the people of our nation

We sing our humble cry

It’s time to get our minds together

Love this world, don’t let it die!

 

Can’t you see these problems?

It’s up to us to solve them

Oh yeah!

 

I’ll try, you’ll try

Maybe we’ll all get by

I’ll try, you’ll try

Maybe we’ll all get by

I’ll try, you’ll try

Maybe we’ll all get by

I’ll try, you’ll try

Maybe we’ll all get by

 

I’m gonna try

Don’t you wanna try too?

I’ll try, you’ll try

Maybe we’ll all get by

To the people of our nation

Help this generation

 

I’ll try, you’ll try Maybe we’ll all get by

Save the people,

I’ll try, you’ll try

Maybe we’ll all get by

Save the people

Oh, save the children, yeah

I’ll try, you’ll try

Maybe we’ll all get by

Help us! Help us!

Come on people, help us!

I’ll try, you’ll try

Maybe we’ll all get by

Those Pretty Faces Always Made You Stand Out In A Crowd
But Someone Picked You From The Bunch, One Glance Was All It Took
Now It’s Much Too Late For Me To Take A Second Look

 

Oh Baby, Give Me One More Chance
(To Show You That I Love You)
Won’t You Please Let Me Back In Your Heart

Nah, nah, nah

 

 

Pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pah

 

You Went To School To Learn Girl
Things You Never, Never Knew Before
Like “I” Before “E” Except After “C”
And Why 2 Plus 2 Makes 4
Now, Now, Now
I’m Gonna Teach You
Teach You, Teach You
All About Love Girl
All About Love
Sit Yourself Down, Take A Seat
All You Gotta Do Is Repeat After Me

 

A B C
It’s Easy As, 1 2 3
As Simple As, Do Re Mi
A B C, 1 2 3

Baby You and Me

 

Yah!

NO, get up girl.  Show me what you can do.

 

ABC , Baby

1 2 3, Baby

Na-na

Do Re Me, Baby

Oh

That’s How Easy Love Can Be

 

Stop You Better Save It

Stop, Stop, Stop, You Better Save It (whoo)

When We Played Tag In Grade School
You Wanted To Be It
But Chasing Boys Was Just A Fad
You Crossed Your Heart You’d Quit

When We Grew Up You Traded
Your Promise For My Ring
Now Just Like Back To Grade School
You’re Doing The Same Old Thing!

 

[Chorus:]
Stop! The Love You Save May Be Your Own!
Darling, Take It Slow
Or Some Day You’ll Be All Alone.

You’d Better Stop The Love You Save May Be Your Own!
Darling, Look Both Ways Before You Cross Me
You’re Headed For The Danger Zone

 

Hold on!  Hold on!

Hold on!

 

S Is For “Save It”
T Is For “Take It Slow”
O Is For “Oh, No!”
P Is For “Please, Please, Don’t Go!”

 

The Love You Save May Be Your Own…

Some Day You May Be All Alone…

Stop It!

Save It, Girl!

Stop!

YouTube link: “That’s How Love Is (Alternate) as recorded in 1970 during ‘ABC’ recording sessions at Motown’s Hitsville Studio, Detroit, Michigan)

 

I’m trying to get to first base

With that little girl I love

But my technique is much too weak

The game is getting rough

 

Strike 1, she almost broke my heart

Strike 2, she had the nerve

And when I wasn’t looking

She struck me out with a curve

 

REFRAIN: That’s how love is

That’s how love’s supposed to be

That’s how love is

Hey boys, take it from me

That’s how love is

That’s how love’s supposed to be

That’s how love is

Hey boys, take it from me

 

Put on the gloves, jumped in the ring

And I heard the first bell sound

When she put her arms around me

I knew I won the first round

 

The tighter she held me

I knew I was gonna last

When I waved at a girl at ringside

She knocked me flat on my ….  (ooooh)

 

REFRAIN: That’s how love is

That’s how love’s supposed to be

That’s how love is

Hey boys, take it from me

That’s how love is

That’s how love’s supposed to be

That’s how love is

Hey boys, take it from me

 

Ooh, Jermaine, you’re a little order

Give me some philosophy

How can I win the game of love

And make ‘em come running to me?

 

Listen Michael, you win a little bit, lose a little bit

It’s all in the game, [I see]

It doesn’t matter, if you win or lose

It all turns out the same

 

REFRAIN: That’s how love is

That’s how love’s supposed to be

That’s how love is

Hey boys, take it from me

That’s how love is

That’s how love’s supposed to be

That’s how love is

Hey boys, take it from me

 

Sing it to me, sing it to me

Sing it to me, sing it to me

 

REFRAIN: That’s how love is

That’s how love’s supposed to be

That’s how love is, Michael [I see]

That’s how love is

That’s how love’s supposed to be

That’s how love is
