Mama, oh Mama
I found that girl
Mama, oh Mama
I found that girl

Jermaine
Mama, life for me now
Is a new sensation
Just like you said it would be
With the right situation
Now love has a meaning
And I have a goal
This feeling inside me now
Makes yesterday a hundred years old
Now I understand
What it is to be a man
The way you explained it to me that day
You said only the right girl
Can make me feel this way

Mama, I think I found that girl
Yeah, Mama, I think I found that girl

Mama, she’s that beautiful dream
That I dream each night
She’s that bird of love
On whose wings I’m in flight
She’s those words left
When there’s no more to say
She’s my sunshine
At the end of a perfect day

All this lets me find a reason to be alive
That day when you set me upon your knee
You said only the right girl
Could be all these things

Mama, I think I found that girl
Yeah, Mama I think I found that girl

You said, “Son, go on and search around
There’s a good girl whose out there to be found”
And Mama I think I found that girl
Yeah, Mama I think I found that girl

And girl since you’ve been gone

With my head hanging down
And I wonder who’s loving you

Up in the heavenly sky
I only know my heaven it’s here on earth
Each time you look into my eyes
The way you do, baby
Thank you, thank you, baby

My beautiful bird you have flown away
I held you too tight I can see
You’re all I need to get by
No one else could make me cry
The way you do, baby

You are the book that I read each day
You are the song that I sing
Gonna sing it to you
You are the four seasons of my life
But maybe tomorrow
You’ll change your mind, girl

Maybe tomorrow
You’ll come back to my arms, girl

You’re all I need to get by
No one else could make me cry

Written by Clifton Davis

YouTube link: “Never Can Say Goodbye”

 

Wikipedia link: “Never Can Say Goodbye” (song)

 

Chorus:
Never can say goodbye
No no no no, I
Never can say goodbye

Even though the pain and heartache
Seems to follow me wherever I go
Though I try and try to hide my feelings
They always seem to show
Then you try to say you’re leaving me
And I always have to say no…

Tell me why
Is it so

DA-DA-DA
Never can say goodbye
No no no no, I
Never can say goodbye

Every time I think I’ve had enough
I start heading for the door
There’s a very strange vibration
that pierces me right through the core
It says turn around you fool
You know you love her more and more

Tell me why
(tell me why)
Is it so
(is it so)

Don’t wanna let you go!
I can never can say goodbye girl
(never can say goodbye girl)
ou ou baby
(don’t wanna let you go girl)
I never can say goodbye
no no no no no no no no no no no

ou! oh!
I never can say goodbye girl
(never can say goodbye girl)
ouuuuuuuu ouuuuuuuuuu
never can say goodbye
no no no no no no no no no no no

(chorus)
Never can say goodbye

Never can say goodbye

I keep thinking that our problems
Soon are all gonna work out
But there’s that same unhappy feeling and there’s that anguish, there’s that doubt
It’s the same old dizzy hang up
Can’t do with you or without

Tell me why
Is it so
Don’t wanna let you go

[Chorus] (and ad libs)

[Repeat till fade]

The Love You Save

By Jackson 5 from ALBUM: ABC (1970)

Written and produced by The Corporation

YouTube link: “The Love You Save” 

Wikipedia link: “The Love You Save” (song)

 

[J5:] Stop! Nanana! You’d better save it!
Stop, stop, stop, you’d better save it!

[Michael:] 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.

[Michael:] I’m the one who loves you!
I’m the one you need!

[Jermaine:] Those other guys will put you down
As soon as they succeed!

[Michael:] They’ll ruin your reputation!
They’ll label you a flirt!

[Jermaine:] The way they talk about you
They’ll turn your name to dirt, oh!

[Michael:] Isaac said he kissed you
Beneath the apple tree
When Benjie held your hand he felt
E-lec-tri-ci-ty!
When Alexander called you
He said he rang your chimes.
Christopher discovered
You’re way ahead of your times!

[Chorus]
[J5:]
Slow down.
Slow down.
Slow down.
Slow down.

[Michael:]
S is for “Save it”
T is for “Take it slow”
O is for “Oh, no!”
P is for “Please, please, don’t go!”

[Jermaine:] The love you save may be your own…

[Michael:] Some day you may be all alone…

[Jermaine:] Stop it!

[Michael:] Save it, girl!

[Jermaine:] Or some day you’ll be all alone.

[Michael:] You’d better stop! the love you save may be your own!
[Jermaine:] Please, please
Or some day, some day baby,
You’ll be all alone
Those other guys will put you down as soon as they succeed.

[Michael:] Stop! The love you save may be your own…

You and I must make a pact, we must bring salvation back
Where there is love, I’ll be there
I’ll reach out my hand to you, I’ll have faith in all you do
Just call my name and I’ll be there

[Chorus:]
And oh – I’ll be there to comfort you,
Build my world of dreams around you, I’m so glad that I found you
I’ll be there with a love that’s strong
I’ll be your strength, I’ll keep holding on – yes I will, yes I will

Let me fill your heart with joy and laughter
Togetherness, well that’s all I’m after
Whenever you need me, I’ll be there
I’ll be there to protect you, with an unselfish love I respect you
Just call my name and I’ll be there

If you should ever find someone new, I know he’d better be good to you
‘Cause if he doesn’t, I’ll be there

Don’t you know, baby, yeah yeah
I’ll be there, I’ll be there, just call my name, I’ll be there

(Just look over your shoulders, honey – ooh)

I’ll be there, I’ll be there, whenever you need me, I’ll be there

Don’t you know, baby, yeah yeah
