To Know

Written by The Corporation

 

YouTube link: “To Know”

 

To Know Of Life
(To Know Of Life)
Is To Know What I’m Living For
Touch My Hand
And, Baby, I’m Yours

 

To Know Of Love
(To Know Of Love)
Is To Know That I Live For You
To Be In Love
Is To Be There With You

 

(Everyday) Everyday Means So Much To Me
But It All Depends On You
Don’t You Know, Oh, Baby
We Were Meant To Be
Oh, And Life For Me
Begins And Ends With You

 

To Know You’re Mine
(To Know You’re Mine)
Is To Know How It Used To Be
Yesterday Is All I Can See

That’s How I Know
Life Can Be Beautiful
But It All Depends On You
Now That You’re Gone, Baby

 

(Since You’ve Been Gone)
Just Not The Same, Baby
Since You’ve Been Gone
Just Not The Same, Baby

To Know Of Us
Is What I’m Still Living For
But It All Depends On You
Baby, It All Depends On You
(Baby, Come Home)

To Know Happiness
Is To Know You’re Here In My Arms
(Baby, Come Home)
Let Me Know, Let Me Know, Let Me Know
What It Is To Live Again
(Baby, Come Home)
(Baby, Come Home)

You Could Already Be There

Jermaine:
hmmm… hmmm ah, Listen to me baby

Musical chairs just ain’t my deal
Ain’t never been my thing
Shuffle board, to me, you see
It just ain’t the same
Well, tic tac toe has got to go
it’s truly become a bore
Checkers, games, i’ve lost my last
and I don’t wanna lose no more

Michael:
Now you can keep on playing hide and seek
and things like blind man’s bluff
but tricks are made for kids, babe
and the name of the game is love, oh

J5:
E-Ne-Me-Ne-Mi-Ne-Moe
The Choice Is Yours To Pull
Do you want to keep on playing games
Or take this heart to fool
E-Ne-Me-Ne-Mi-Ne-Moe
The Choice Is Yours To Pull
Do you want to keep on playing games
Or take this heart to fool

Jermaine:
Now I believe in loving hard
don’t care bout games or money
I believe in being love rich
so i’ll never be love poor, honey
Playin the field behind my back
and to my face saying that you are true
That’s the game for foolish kids, baby
not for me and you

Michael:
So don’t keep your feelings hidden
if you want me, tell me so
Can’t you see tricks are made for kids
these games have got to go, oh

J5:
E-Ne-Me-Ne-Mi-Ne-Moe
The Choice Is Yours To Pull
Do you want to keep on playing games
Or take this heart to fool
E-Ne-Me-Ne-Mi-Ne-Moe
The Choice Is Yours To Pull
Do you want to keep on playing games
Or take this heart to fool

Michael:
Oh! Oh, yeah!
Nah nah nah nah yeah!
Ooh ooh!

Jermaine:
So come on, honey
out of your Disneyland dream
I’m not make believe
(I’m the real thing)
I’ve got all love riches, baby
and i’m here to please

Michael:
So Stop your fooling around
push has come to shove
Throwin out the games of yesterday
Now the name of the game is love, OH!

J5:
E-Ne-Me-Ne-Mi-Ne-Moe
The Choice Is Yours To Pull
Do you want to keep on playing games
Or take this heart to fool
E-Ne-Me-Ne-Mi-Ne-Moe
The Choice Is Yours To Pull
Do you want to keep on playing games
Or take this heart to fool

Don't Let Your Baby Catch You

Michael Jackson – The Jackson 5 – from the Album: Lookin’ Through The Windows (1972)

Written by The Corporation

 

YouTube link: “Don’t Let Your Baby Catch You” 

 

Don’t Let Your Baby Catch You
Don’t Let Your Baby Catch You
Don’t Let Your Baby Catch You
Fooling Around
You Just Might Lose The Best Thing
You Ever Found
Don’t Let Your Baby Catch You
Fooling Around

Oh,The Nights Are Long And Twice As Cold
Without My Baby’s Hand To Hold
My Happiness Is Fading Away
(Fading It’s Fading)

Just Like A Thief I Tried To Steal A Kiss
From Another Pretty Miss
My Baby Was The Price That I Paid

Now Listen Fellas
(Think Twice)
Think Twice
If You Have Cheating On Your Mind
(Watch Your Step)
Remember The Punishment Will Fit The Crime

Chorus
Don’t Let Your Baby Catch You
Don’t Let Your Baby Catch You
Don’t Let Your Baby Catch You Fooling Around

You Just Might Lose The Best Thing You Ever Found
Don’t Let Your Baby Catch You Fooling Around
Oh, I Hope It’s Not Too Late For Me
To Right My Wrong And Foolish Deeds
I’m Gonna Crawl Back All The Way On My Knees

And If That Don’t Do
I’ll Get The Moon
And Set It Down In Front Of Her
All Before I Even Say Please

If I Get One More Chance
My Life Will Be As Good As New
And I Will Not Forget The Days
The Sun Would Not Shine Through

Don’t Let Your Baby Catch You
Don’t Let Your Baby Catch You
Don’t Let Your Baby Catch You Fooling Around
Hey, Hey, Oh No!

Take Me Back, Take Me Back, Take Me Back Baby

Don’t Let Her, Your Baby Catch You
You Just Might Lose The Best Thing You Ever Found
Tell Us ‘Bout It Mike

If You’re Crazy ‘Bout Your Baby
And She’s Crazy ‘Bout You
Just Think Of What You’ll Do To Her
If She Was Untrue

Don’t Let Your Baby Catch You
Don’t Let Your Baby Catch You
Don’t Let Your Baby Catch You
Fooling Around
You Just Might Lose The Best Thing
You Ever Found
Don’t Let Your Baby Catch You
Fooling Around

[Julie Windsor – thanks for the lyrics!]

DON’T WANT TO SEE TOMORROW

Don't Want to See Tomorrow

 

Michael Jackson – The Jackson 5 – from the Album: Lookin’ Through The Windows (1972)

Written by Stephen Bowden, Jim Chambers, Hal Davis and Theodore McFaddin

 

AUDIO only: Don’t Want to See Tomorrow

 

Jackson 5: Don’t wanna see

Michael: No no no, No no no

Jackson 5: Tomorrow
No no no No no no

Don’t wanna see

Michael
No no no
No no no

Love has brought us to a fork in the road
Giving us a choice of two ways to go
My hope has always been to stay with you
But you like to leave me so all alone

Jackson 5: Don’t wanna see tomorrow without you girl
How can you say it has to be this way
Don’t wanna see tomorrow without you girl
When our love was so strong just yesterday

Jermaine: A little at a time you gained control
Ruling my heart and mind
And my very soul
But even if I knew what was to come
I’d gladly bear the pain
And love you just the same

Jackson 5: Don’t wanna see tomorrow without you girl
How can you say it has to be this way
Don’t wanna see tomorrow without you girl
When our love was so strong just yesterday

 

Yeah!

 

Don’t wanna see tomorrow
Don’t wanna see tomorrow

Michael: Niqueira mirar ma’ana!

Jackson 5: Don’t wanna see tomorrow, ohh!

Jermaine: Somebody can you wake me
I must be dreaming
This just can’t be for real
Must be mistaken
I can’t believe you’d go after all this time
But if it’s really true
I think I’ll just lose my mind

Jackson 5: Don’t wanna see tomorrow without you girl
How can you say it has to be this way
Don’t wanna see tomorrow without you girl
When our love was so strong just yesterday

Jermaine: No no no no no no no no

Jackson 5: (No no no no no no no no)

Don’t wanna see tomorrow without you girl
How can you say it has to be this way
Don’t wanna see tomorrow without you girl
When our love was so strong just yesterday

Doctor My Eyes Have Seen The Years

Now I Want To Understand

I Have Done All That I Could
To See The Evil And The Good
Without Hiding
You Must Help Me If You Can

[CHORUS ]
Doctor, My Eyes (Eyes)
Tell Me What Is Wrong
Was I Unwise
To Leave Them Open For So Long, Yeah

Cause I Have
Cause I Have Wandered Through This World
As Each Moment Has Unfurled
I’ve Been Waiting To Awaken From These Dreams

People Go Just Where They Will
I Never Noticed Them Until
I’ve Got This Feeling That It’s Later Than It Seems

[CHORUS ]
Doctor, My Eyes (Eyes)
Tell Me What You See
I Hear Their Cries
Just Saying “It’s Too Late For Me”

Oh Yeah.  Oh Yeah

Boo-Boo-Boo Boom

Boo-Boo-Boo Boom

Boo-Boo-Boo Boom

Is This The Prize
For Having Learned How Not To Cry, Ooh Yeah!

Written by Michael Randall

 

YouTube link: “Children of the Light”

 

Children of the light, ooh
Children of the light, ooh

People Work And People Talk
And Think That They’re Alive
But Ask Them What Their Lives About
They’re Quick To Run And Hide

People Laugh And People Cry
But Never Realize
That All The World’s Tomorrows Lie
In What They Feel Inside

So, Take My Hand
And Walk In The Sunshine
Take My Hand,
Come Out Of The Night

We Can Stand,
Despite All The Dark Lies
And We Can Build A World That Is Right
We Can Be The Children Of The Light

Children Of The Light,
Walk Together
All Of My Brothers,
Walk Together
All Of My Sisters,
Walk Forever
All Of My Children,
Children Smile

The Time Has Come For Everyone
To Stop And Look Around
To See Just Where We Started From
And Ponder Where We’re Bound

The Ship We’re On Has Lost Its Way
Just pretended it’s due
The day each man is open to
anothers point of view

So, Take My Hand
And Walk In The Sunshine
Take My Hand, From Out Of The Night
We Can Stand, Despite All The Dark Lies
And We Can Build A World That Is Right
We Can Be The Children Of The Light

Everybody!

So, Take My Hand
And Walk In The Sunshine
Take My Hand, From Out Of The Night
We Can Stand, Despite All The Dark Lies
And We Can Build A World That Is Right
We Can Be The Children Of The Light

Ooh, I’ve Got Your Picture Hangin’ On The Wall
But It Can’t See Or Come To Me
When I Call Your Name (When I Call Your Name)
I Realize It’s Just A Picture In A Frame

I Read Your Letters When You’re Not Near
But They Don’t Move Me And They Don’t Groove Me
Like When I Hear (When I’m In Your Arms)
Your Sweet Voice Whispering In My Ear (In My Ear)

No Other Sound
Is Quite The Same As Your Name (Quite The Same As Your Name)
No Touch Can Do Half As Much To Make Me Feel Better
So Let’s Stay Together

Ooh, I’ve Got Memories (Memories)To Look Back On
Though They Help When You’re Gone
I’m Well Aware (I’m Well Aware)
Nothin’ Can Take The Place Of You Being There (Being There)

Ain’t Nothin’ Like The Real, Baby (Ain’t Nothin’
Ain’t Nothin’ Like The Real Thing, Ooh Baby

IF I HAVE TO MOVE A MOUNTAIN

If I have to move a Mountain

Track no. 17 (CD2) of Album: “Come and Get It: The Rare Pearls”  (THE JACKSON 5) – also appeared on Album: “Lookin’ Through The Windows” (1972)

Release date: August 28, 2012

Written by: Deke Richards

YouTube: “If I have to Move a Mountain”

 

You need love like millions do someone who’s special who’d care for you

I need you like you need love but you think my heart is just out of fun

(Who’s the one who loves you, the special one who needs you)

You made the odds a million to me

(No one else can love you, nobody else can need you)

No more than the one whose heart you won’t believe

 

So if I have to move a mountain

Simply to prove that you’re my love (My love)

That you’re my love, baby (My only love)

I’ll do it, I’ll do it, yes I’ll do it for you

 

And if I had to stop a river to make you believe

That I’m the one that special one you need (that special one)

I’ll do it, I’ll do it, yes I’ll do it to show I love you

 

In your eyes I see no faith

There’s an absence of trust In your embrace

But why would I pretend to give

Just to take from the person for whom I live

 

(I told you that I love you, especially I need you)

You’re one love in a million was made from the stars

(And maybe you’d believe me then maybe you would need me)

But maybes may not ever convince your stubborn heart

 

So if I have to move a mountain

Simply to prove that you’re my love (My love)

You’re my love, baby (My only love)

I’d do it and I’ll do it, yes I’ll do it for you (Do it for you)

And if I have to stop a river

To make you believe that I’m the one (The one)

That special one you need (That special one)

I’d do it, yes I’d do it

(To show I love you)

 

Here I am.  Here I am my love with tears in my eyes

Hoping (hoping), praying (praying) you realize

 

That there are pins and needles sticking in my heart

We’re so close, but still so far apart

What to do, what to do to make you need my love too

 

Oh, do I have to move a mountain

Simply to prove that you’re my love (you’re the one I love)

That you’re my love, baby (the one I need)

I’d do it and I’ll do it, yes I’ll do it for you

 

And if I have to stop a river

To make you believe that I’m the one (you’re the one I love)

That special one you need (That special one I need)

I’d do it, yes I’d do it

(To show I love you)

 

And if I have to move a mountain

Simply to prove that you’re my love (you’re the one I love)

That you’re my love, baby (you’re the one I need)

I’ll do it and I’ll do it, yes I’ll do it for you
