I WILL FIND A WAY

  • December 18, 2011 11:42 pm

I will find a way

The Jackson 5 – from the Album: Maybe Tomorrow (1971)

Lead vocal: Jermaine Jackson

Written by The Corporation

YouTube link – “I Will Find a Way”

 

One little kiss
Led to another and another and another
Then, ooh, I wanted you
And I feel those good vibrations
Deep inside my soul
Telling me that you’re my goal.

But if I’m stepping out of line
If my words don’t seem to rhyme
It’s because I’m falling head over heels in love with you
Darling, please don’t turn away
Open your heart and let me stay
And I will find a way

Oh, trying to get to you
Is like trying to get a little cat down from the top of a tree
You’re scared of me
But believe my ladder to love
Is strong and it will never break
Your little heart will be safe.

But if I’m stepping out of line
If my words don’t seem to rhyme
It’s because I’m falling head over heels in love with you
Darling, please don’t be afraid
Open your heart and let me stay
And I will find a way

But if I’m stepping out of line
If my words don’t seem to rhyme
It’s because I’m falling head over heels in love with you
Darling, please don’t be afraid
Open your heart and let me stay
And I will find a way

But if I’m stepping out of line
If my words don’t seem to rhyme
It’s because I’m falling head over heels in love with you
Darling, please don’t be afraid
Open your heart and let me stay
And I will find a way into your heart, girl
[Repeat and fade]

HONEY CHILE

Honey Chile

Michael Jackson – The Jackson 5 – from the Album: Maybe Tomorrow (1971)

(originally performed by Martha Reeves and the Vandellas)

Written by Richard Morris and Sylvia Moy

YouTube link – “Honey Chile”

 

It was there on my grandma’s farm

Where the grapes grew high on the vine

Yeah, that’s where we first met little girl

 

But you ain’t gonna amount to nothing

Cause you ain’t gonna work for nothing

Without you I ain’t good for nothing, honey chile

 

Oh honey chile, you’re sure about to drive me wild

And I love you so, can’t let go now honey chile

 

Oh, sugar chile, I’d walk me a country mile

Just to be with you if that were true of honey chile

 

You don’t act like a lady

Cause you’ve been courting Davie

Its reputation shady oh honey chile

 

Hey you even go out with Charlie

That night across the alley

Oh, I’ve been keeping tally honey chile

 

You’re like grapes upon the vine

That went in Granny’s wine

Cause like that home-made wine so sweet

You’re so driving me out of my mind now

Your friend was such a playboy

Choosing me for a play toy

You’re ruined my pride and joy now honey chile

 

Oh honey chile, you’re about to drive me wild

And I love you so, can’t let go now honey chile

Oh, sugar chile, I’d walk me a country mile

Just to be with you if that were true of honey chile

 

Why don’t you put on your shoes little girl

Then I can kiss you

Oh listen here now

 

One day I’m gonna get stronger

And I won’t need you no longer

This feeling will be gone oh honey chile

 

Hey, I can’t take disgracing

That ain’t the way Grandma raised me

You’re gonna hurt me crazy honey chile

 

Oh, sugar chile, I’d walk me a country mile

Just to be with you if that were true of honey chile

Oh honey chile, you’re about to drive me wild

And I love you so, can’t let go now honey chile

IT’S GREAT TO BE HERE

It's Great to be Here

Michael Jackson – The Jackson 5 – from the Album: Maybe Tomorrow (1971)

Written by The Corporation

Video link – It’s Great To Be here (not YouTube)
So Glad (So Glad)
So Glad (So Glad)
So Glad, to be back in your arms

Thank you baby (Thank you baby)
Thank you baby
Back where I Belong

Oh, I went out to do my thing
And I was totally rejected
I put you down for love unknown
But it wasn’t what I expected

So frightened and confused
I came running back to you
I got right down on my knees
And said darling won’t you please

I don’t know why you did it
But I’m not too proud to admit it, baby

Thank you baby
Thank you baby (Back where I belong)
It’s great to be here, Ooh (Great to be here)
It’s great to be here in your arms
Back where I belong

Adventure grabbed my heart
And it took me away from you, honey
I met all kinds of pretty girls
In every town that I passed through

But that fiery Senorita
Burned me down in Mexico
And I got kisses cold as ice
From my Alaskan Eskimo

I feel guilty and ashamed
But I’m gonna say it just the same, baby

Thank you baby
Thank you baby, yeah (Back where I belong)
It’s great to be here, Ooh (Great to be here)
It’s great to be here in your arms

Now yes says senorita
She gave me I’ll just see ya!
While kissing in the igloo
My Eskimo said no, no!

Yeah baby
So glad (So glad)
So glad (So glad)
So glad to be back in your arms

It’s great to be here (Great to be here)
It’s great to be here in your arms (Back where I belong)
Baby, baby, baby, baby, Ow!

It’s great to be here, ooh (Great to be here)
It’s great to be here in your arms (Back where I belong)
Yeah, yeah, yeah

It’s great to be here (Great to be here)
It’s great to be here in your arms (Back where I belong)
Baby, baby, baby, baby, yeah

It’s great to be here (Great to be here)
It’s great to be here in your arms
I’m so glad (Back where I belong)

MY LITTLE BABY

My Little Baby

Michael Jackson – Jackson 5 – from the Album: Maybe Tomorrow (1971)

Written by The Corporation

Video – “My Little Baby” (not YouTube)

 

All my friends keep asking what do I see in you
Through their eyes you beauty doesn’t show
Ooh, all they ask is justified looking through the naked eye
But through the eyes of my love I see
The inner beauty of you

That’s why you’re my little baby
That’s why you’re my little baby
I don’t want love on the skin
It’s got to come from deep within
That’s why you’re my little baby
My little baby
My heart controls my eyes
And your love I visualize, oh yeah!

All your so-called girlfriends who compliment your clothes
Know that they’re your mama’s hand-me-downs
Oooh, the fashion world’s turning so fast
You’re still trying to catch the past
But in my world of love your style
I know will always last

That’s why you’re my little baby
That’s why you’re my little baby
I don’t care what experts say
Our love is tailor-made
That’s why you’re my little baby
My my my my little baby
Like a brand-new ermine coat
You keep me warm as toast, little baby!

You know it’s true, little baby
You know it’s true, girl
You know it’s true, little baby
You know it’s true, babe
I’m sticking with you, little baby
I’m sticking with you, girl
I’m sticking with you, little baby

Always thrill me when you touch me
Honey, you thrill me when you kiss me, little baby, yeah
Oh, sweet baby, I’ve got to say I’m thankful that you’re my little baby
My little baby
You fill me up with pride
Every time you’re by my side, now now now now

Oh yeah, you’re my little baby, my little baby
My little baby, I’ve got to say I’m thankful that you’re my little baby
My little baby, my little baby
[Repeat and fade]

(WE’VE GOT) BLUE SKIES

We've Got Blue Skies

Michael Jackson – The Jackson 5 – from the Album: Maybe Tomorrow (1971)

Written by Thomas Bee, Chris Clark, Fuller Gordy, Patrick Stephenson and Deloris Wilkinson

YouTube link – “We’ve Got Blue Skies”

 

We’ve got blue skies, we’ve got blue skies

It seems like only yesterday
You gave your love to me
And we made a vow that through the years
Our love would always be
Whenever doubts would fill my mind
You’d brush my fears away
Look into my eyes and hold me close
And this is what you’d say

We’ve got blue skies, now can’t you see There’ll never ever be another love for me

The pleasant dreams we shared
Made our love stronger with each day
And the fears that haunted me
Seemed like a million miles away
When friends we knew would come to me
With lies about your love
I’d tell them happiness and sunny skies
Are all we’re thinking of
We’re so in love
We’re thinking of

Blue skies, oh
Blue skies, oh

I see you there, you’re kissing him
How can this really be
Well, I guess it’s time to realize
My dreams are more to me
And as I walk off thinking
What a fool I must have been
Like an echo from my lips today
I hear you telling him (you’re telling me)

We’ve got blue skies, now can’t you see
There’ll never ever be another love for me
We’ve got blue skies, now can’t you see
There’ll never ever be another love for me
Blue skies, we’ve got blue skies
Blue skies, we’ve got blue skies
Blue skies, we’ve got blue skies, oh baby
(Repeat and fade)

PETALS

Petals

Michael Jackson – The Jackson 5 – from the Album: Maybe Tomorrow (1971)

Written by The Corporation

YouTube link: “Petals”
When my honey says she loves me so
Believe me, ya’ll, it’s far from status quo
A grain of salt I take with her heart
‘Cause after her next breath, that girl may love me not
She tells my I’m so sweet
Sugar can’t compete
Then puts me on the shelf
Crying by myself

Throwing petals, petals, tossing petals on the ground
Yesterday she picked me up just to throw me down
Those petals, petals, tell me what will it be today
Will she walk into my arms or will she walk away

She’ll wake up some day and see
You’re the only one she needs
Don’t give up, just stick around
You’ll be up instead of down

She keeps telling me she wants me near
But half the time it’s far from crystal clear
Fickle-heart must be her middle name
‘Cause loving her is just a guessing game, oh
She calls up to say
“Be there right away”
Then leaves me sitting home
All alone and

Throwing all those petals, petals, tossing petals on the ground
Yesterday she picked me up just to throw me down
Those petals, petals, tell me what will it be today
Will she walk into my arms or will she walk away

She loves me (loves me, loves me)
And I feel like a king
She loves me not (loves me not, she loves me not)
Huh! I’ve lost everything

Petals, petals, tossing petals on the ground
Yesterday she picked me up just to throw me down
Yesterday I couldn’t lose (yesterday I couldn’t lose)
But today I sing the blues

Oh! Petals, petals, petals, petals
Ooh, ooh! Petals, petals, petals, petals
Petals, petals, petals, petals
Petals, petals, petals, petals

Petals, petals, tossing petals on the ground
Yesterday she picked me up just to throw me down
Tell me, tell me, tell me, what will it be today

You Hold Me Close To You My Baby
But Somehow It Doesn’t Feel The Same
You Built The Wall So High Between Us
And You Tell Me That You Haven’t Changed

(Chorus)
Tear Down The Wall That I Can Feel Between Us
The Hidden Wall That Hides The Real Love
Tear It On Down, Tear The Wall Down
Tell Me My Love Has Got The Strength To Take It
Tell Me What’s Wrong We’ll Make It
Tear It On Down, Yeah Tear The Wall Down

I Thought I Really Knew You Baby
Almost The Way I Know Myself
But Now You’re Acting Like A Stranger
And You Changed Girl Into Somebody Else, oh baby

(Chorus)

Tear Down The Wall That I Can Feel Between Us
The Hidden Wall That Hides The Real Love
Tear It On Down, Tear The Wall Down
Tell Me My Love Has Got The Strength To Take It
Tell Me What’s Wrong We’ll Make It
Tear It On Down, Yeah Tear The Wall Down

 

Tear Down The Wall That I Can Feel Between Us

That something so groovy could be mine
Talkin’ about that girl

Wikipedia link: “Maybe Tomorrow” (song)

I don’t know how many stars there are
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
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

You are the book that I read each day
You are the song that I sing
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

Baby I need you
Listen to me girl
