You Need Love Like I Do

 

Michael Jackson – The Jackson 5 – from the Album: Get It Together (1973)

Originally by Gladys Knight and the Pips and The Temptations

Written by Barrett Strong and Norman Whitfield

YouTube link: “You Need Love Like I Do”

 

Well, Well, Well, Well
Seems Like It Was Only Yesterday
When My Mama Told Me Don’t Fall In Love
With The First Girl That Comes Your Way
She Was Surely Nice
But I Took Her Advice And Passed Her By
Years Have Passed And Don’t Look
Like Love’s Gonna Give Me A Second Try
Boy The Look On Your Face Tells Me You Understand
Could It Be Your Love Life’s Like Mine
Needs A Helping Hand Well, Well
You Need Love Like I Do (Don’t You).

Girl I Can Tell By The Way
You Look When I’m Looking At You
I Know It Ain’t Fit And Proper
For A Boy To Talk This Way
But I Can’t Cope With This Loneliness
Not One More Doggone Day
Everyday Has Been An Uphill Climb
Keeping My Hopes A-Float
Judging From Your Silence Girl
You Must Be In The Same Boat
Ain’t It True Now
You Need Love Like I Do (Don’t You)
Girl I Can Tell By The Way You Look
When I’m Looking At You
Well, Well, Well You Need Love
Like I Do (Don’t You)

(Boy It Seems Like I’m Looking In The Mirror
When I’m Looking At You
I Can’t Begin To Tell
The Many Nights I Sit Home Lonely
Come On And Tell Me Girl
Has It Ever Happened To You
Girl  I’m Gonna Tell You Something
And Believe Me It Ain’t No Joke
My Love Life Is Just Like A Sinking Boat) No?!

I Can Understand A Person Being Without Money
But There Sure Ain’t No Reason
For A Person To Be Without Love
Listen To Me Now
I’m A Boy And You’re A Girl
So Come On Let’s Give Love A Try
Tell Me Lil’ Big Girl
You Need Love Like I Do (Don’t You)
I Can Tell By The Way You Look
When I’m Looking At You
Girl Finding True Love Is A Dream
That Everyone Wants To Come True
Girl Can’t You See That It’s Up To Us
To Make This Dream Come True Oh

Too Late
Too Late
Too Late

[VERSE 1]
In This Automatic Age,
We Shop Through The Yellow Page
Gone Is The Corner Store,
There’s A Supermarket There For Ya

People Give Way To Change,
But Feelings Remain The Same

[Chorus]
And It’s Too Late, Too Late To Change The Time
Well It’s Too Late, Too Late To Change The Time
And It’s Too Late, Too Late To Change The Time

But It’s Not Too Late (Too Late) To Change Your Mind

[VERSE 2]
It’s A Newer Day, And A New Age
A Photograph Just Taken,
Is Ready One Minute Later

Cars Are Bigger And Better,
But The Manufacturer’s Satisfied, Never
In A World Full Of Crime,
I Can’t Let You Think That’s Right

[CHORUS]
And It’s Too Late, Too Late To Change The Time
And It’s Too Late, Too Late To Change The Time
And It’s Too Late, Too Late To Change The Time

But It’s Not Too Late (Too Late) To Change Your Mind, No No

[VERSE 3]
So You Wanna Be A Star (So You Wanna Be A Star)
Already Think You Are (I Think You Are)
You Don’t Have To Go Further…
Than My Lovin’ Arms

[CHORUS]
And It’s Too Late, Too Late To Change The Time

But It’s Not Too Late (Too Late) To Change Your Mind

[VERSE 4]
Are You Sure You Wanna Go To New York City? (New York City)
Where Girls Make It Big, If They’re Pretty (If They’re Pretty)
Let’s Say You Get That Penthouse View
But Who’s Gonna Love You,
The Way I Do? (Just The Way I Do)

[CHORUS]
It’s Too Late, Too Late To Change The Time
And It’s Too Late, Too Late To Change The Time, No
Too Late, Too Late To Change The Time

But It’s Not Too Late (Too Late) To Change Your Mind

YEAH, YEAH, YEAH!!!..

It’s Too Late, Too Late (Too Late) To Change The Time
It’s Too Late, Too Late (Too Late) To Change The Time, Oh
It’s Too Late, Too Late To Change The Time

But It’s Not Too Late (Too Late) To Change Your Mind

YEAH, YEAH, YEAH!

Mama I Gotta Brand New Thing (Don't Say No)

Michael Jackson – The Jackson 5 – from the Album: Get It Together (1973)

Written by Norman Whitfield

YouTube link: “Mama I Gotta Brand New Thing” (remix version)

 

Sunday Morning I Heard Mama Pray
From A Room I Heard Her Say
‘Good Lord Help My Son Find His Way’
‘Lord He’s Just A Country Boy’
‘Thinks The World Is A Great Big Toy’
There Ain’t Nothin’ He Can’t Do
If He Wants To

He Got Himself A Part Time Job
Saved His Money And Bought Him A Guitar
Played From Sun Up To Sundown, Hey, Hey, Hey

(He Don’t Wanna) Go To School No More
Don’t Do His Household Chores
But I’m A Hit, The Neighbors Biggest Sound, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

(He’s) Got Some Big Ideas
He’s Talkin’ ‘Bout Leavin’ Here
Going To A Place Called New York City
And Here’s What He Told Me

Mama, I Gotta Brand New Thing Don’t Say No
Let Me Go
Mama, (Yeah) I Gotta Brand New Thing Don’t Say No
Let Me Go

Mama Said, ‘My Son, My Son You’re Only Sixteen’
‘I Know Being A Star Is Your Dream’
‘But I Think It’s Time You Stop All This Foolin”
‘And Get To Your Schoolin”

Living In A State Of Frustration
Stop Preachin’ That Education
‘Cause This Job Is Gonna Make Me A King
Above Everything Else, Listen
Donned From Head To Toe
First Class Everywhere We Go
Just Give Me A Chance To Do My Thing

Mama, I Gotta Brand New Thing Don’t Say No
Let Me Go
Mama, I Gotta Brand New Thing Don’t Say No
Let Me Go
I Can See It Now

Champagne And Caviar
Black Limousine, Chauffeured Car
Trips All Around The World
And I’ll Have My Choice Of Any Girl
People Lined Up As Far As You Can See
Standing In Line Just To See Me
Money Stacking Up To The Sky
There Ain’t Nothin’ That We Can’t Buy
Have A Little Faith In Me
Mama I’m Sure That You Will See That Your Son And His Guitar
Are Gonna Go Far

Mama, I Gotta Brand New Thing Don’t Say No
Let Me Go
Mama, I Gotta Brand New Thing Don’t Say No
Let Me Go
Mama, I Gotta Brand New Thing Don’t Say No
Let Me Go

Originally by Diana Ross & the Supremes

Written by Lamont Dozier, Edward Holland, Jr. and Brian Holland

YouTube link: “Reflections” (album version)

Through The Mirror Of My Mind
Time After Time
I See Reflections Of You And Me

(Reflections Of)
The Way Life Used To Be
(Reflections Of)
The Love You Took From Me, Oh

I’m All Alone Now
No Love To Shield Me
Trapped In A World
That’s A Distorted Reality

Happiness you Took From Me
And Left Me All Alone
With Only Memories

Through The Mirror Of My Mind
Through These Tears That I’m Crying
Reflects A Hurt I Can’t Control

(Cause Although You’re Gone)
I Keep Holding On
(To The Happy Times)
Oh, When You Were Mine

(All The Love)
All The Love That I’ve Wasted
(All The Tears)
All The Tears That I’ve Tasted
All In Vain

Through The Hollow Of My Tears
I See A Dream That’s Lost
From The Hurt Girl
That You Have Caused

Everywhere I Turn
Seems Like Everything I See
Reflects The Love That Used To Be

(Reflections)
The Love You Took From Me
(Reflections)
In You I Put All My Faith And Trust
(Reflections)
Right Before My Eyes My World Has Turned To Dust
(Reflections)
The Way Life Use To Be
(Reflections)
The Love You Took From Me

Don't Say Goodbye Again

Written by Pam Sawyer and Leon Ware

YouTube link: “Don’t Say Goodbye Again” (album version)

(Don’t you say, don’t you say, ooh)
(Don’t you make, don’t you make, ooh)
(Make me cry)
(Make me cry)
You had my life (You had my life)
In the palm of your hand (The palm of your hand)
Why you threw it away
I’ll never, ever understand

You took away the best part (The best part, best part)
The best part of me
You took away, you
How cruel could you be

You’re just another heartache
I’ve got to learn to take
You’re just another habit
I have to learn to break
Am I alone again (Am I alone)
Am I alone again (Am I alone)
Am I alone, alone, alone

Don’t say goodbye again, don’t say goodbye again
Don’t make me cry, cry, cry
Don’t say goodbye again, don’t say goodbye again
Don’t make cry, cry, cry again
(Again, again)

The more I try the more you hurt me why
(Tell me why)
Tell me why (Tell me why)
Tell me why (Why)

(I can take) I can take an aspirin
For a bad headache
But what pill for loneliness
Can I take
I can see through you
Just like cellophane
But I need you, baby
Like a star needs fame

You’re not another habit
I have to learn to break
Let’s try to patch it up
Before it’s too late
I’m in love with you
I’m in love with you
I’m in love, in love, in love

Don’t say goodbye again, don’t say goodbye again
Don’t make me cry, cry, cry
Don’t say good bye again, don’t say goodbye again
Don’t make me cry, cry, cry again

The more I try the more you hurt me why
(Tell me why)
Tell me why (Tell me why)
Tell me why (Why)

Don’t have to say, don’t have to say (Don’ t say goodbye)
Don’t say goodbye
Don’t have to make, don’t have to make (Don’t make me cry)
Don’t make me cry

Don’t say goodbye again, don’t say goodbye again
Don’t make me cry, cry, cry
Don’t say good bye again, don’t say goodbye again
Don’t make me cry
