On The Ground
Lost Then Found
To The Top
Thanks A Lot
You Made Me What I Am Today
You Made Me What I Am Today

You Knew Me When
But Still You Loved Me
You Stuck With Me Through Thick And Thin, Yeah

You Took My Hand
And Then You Showed Me
‘Til Opportunity Let Me In
You Pushed Me Right Up To The Top

You Made Me What I Am Today
You Made Me What I Am Today

Fame And Fortune
Can’t Change My Name
That’s Not The Life I Want To Lead, No No

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah,
Success Is Passing
And Friends Have Left Me
And A Friend In Need Is A Friend Indeed

I Know Who My Friends Are
I Know Who You Are

You Made Me What I Am Today
You Made Me What I Am Today

Testify, Testify
Come On Testify
Testify, Testify
Come On Testify

The Road Was Dark
When I Set Out To Look For Love
And You Let The Light Shine Through (Oh Testify)

I Used The Words
“That I Could Touch The Sky Above”
And You Made It All Come True (Oh Testify)

It Was You (Thank You Love, Thank You Baby)
It Was You (Thank You Love, Thank You Baby)

[CHORUS]
You Made Me What I Am Today
You Made Me What I Am Today

On The Ground
Lost Then Found
To The Top
Thanks A Lot
You Made Me What I Am Today
You Made Me What I Am Today

On The Ground
Lost Then Found
To The Top
Thanks A Lot
You Made Me What I Am Today
You Made Me What I Am Today

On The Ground
Lost Then Found
To The Top
Thanks A Lot
You Made Me What I Am Today
You Made Me What I Am Today

Originally performed by The Four Tops

Written by Leonard Caston and Kathy Wakefield

YouTube link – “I Can’t Quit Your Love” 
Do Do Do Do Wah Ohhh
Do Do Do Do Wah

The Love Was Standing On Its Shaky Ground
There Ain’t No Way On Earth To Hold You Down
And Every Road I Take To You Instead Of Losing Ooh Yea Ha

I’m Gonna Find A Boat To Row Away
Where I Won’t Be Reaching For You Night And Day
Where There’s No Windows Ain’t No Doors
To Let Your Love In Ooh I, I

(Chorus)
I Can’t Quit Your Love, Oh Yeah
No Matter How Hard I Try To
I Can’t Quit Your Love, No I Can’t
I Keep Running Back To You
You Know I Can’t Quit Your Love Oh Yeah!

You Snap Your Fingers And I Feel On Fire
Like Silly Spinning Wheels Of Desire
You Have To Be A Bird With Wings To Get Me Higher

The Minor Things For Me As I Lose Control
The Weakness Of My Judgment Rules My Soul
You Know You Got Each Claim In Me After The Wire Ooh!

Everything Has Its Season
Everything Has Its Time
Show Me A Reason
And I’ll Soon Show You A Rhyme

Cat’s Sit On The Window Sill
Children Sit In The Show
Why Do I Feel I Don’t Fit In
Anywhere I Go

(Chorus)
Rivers Belong Where They Can Ramble
Eagles Belong Where They Can Fly
I’ve Got To Be Where My Spirit Can Run Free
Gotta Find My Corner, Ooh Of The Sky

Every Man His Daydream
Every man Has His Goal
People Like The Way Dreams Have Of
Sticking To The Soul

Thunder Clouds Have Their Lightning
Nightingales Have Their Song
And Don’t You See I Want My Life
To Be Something More Than Long, Yeah

(Chorus)

(So Many Men Seem Destined)
(To Settle For Something Small)
But I, I Won’t Rest
‘Til I Know I Have It All
So Don’t Ask Where I’m Going
Just Listen When I’m Gone
(Far Away You’ll Hear Me Singing)
Softly To The Dawn

Oh, Rivers Belong Where They Can Ramble,
Oh, Eagles Belong Where They Can Fly
I’ve Got To Be Where My Spirit Can Run Free, Yeah
Gotta Find My Corner, Ooh Of The Sky, Yeah (Of The Sky, Yeah)
Rivers Belong Where They Can Ramble
Oh, Eagles Belong Where They Can Fly (High)
Oh, I’ve Got To Be Where My Spirit Can Run Free
Gotta Find My Corner
Gotta Find My Corner, Yes I Do
Gotta Find My Corner
Gotta Find My Corner Of The Sky, Sky
Gotta Find My Corner Of The Sky, Sky

(Chorus)
Skywriter
Sweep Your Silver Pen,
Across The Sky So High
Skywriter
Won’t You Write The Biggest
“I Love You”
Cross The Sky

She Don’t Read The Letters
I Write Anymore
Sorry I Upset Her
But I Wasn’t Sure
Now I Know I Love Her
I Hope That She Will See
A Message High Above Her
That You Write For Me, Yeah.

(Chorus)

Hey Hey
Send A Box Of Candy
And Flowers Every Day
Still She Wouldn’t Listen
Her Pride Got In The Way

Now It’s Up To You
It Won’t Fade Away
Write It On The Heavens
Love Will Make It Stay, Yeah
