Ain't That Peculiar

The Jackson 5 – From The Album: The Jackson 5 In Japan (1973)

Lead vocal: Jermaine Jackson

(Originally By Marvin Gaye)

Written By Moore/Robinson/Rogers

YouTube link – “Ain’t That Peculiar”

 

Honey You Do Me Wrong But Still I’m Crazy About You
Stay Away Too Long And I Can’t Do Without You
Every Chance You Get You Seem To Hurt Me More And More
But Each Hurt Makes My Love Stronger Than Before
I Know Flowers Go Through Rain
But How Can Love Go Through Pain

Ain’t That Peculiar
A Peculiar-Ality
Ain’t That Peculiar Baby
Peculiar As Can Be

You Tell Me Lies That Should Be Obvious To Me I’ve Been So Much In Love With You Baby Til I Don’t Wanna See
That Things You Do And Say Are Designed To Make Me Blue
It’s A Dog-Gone Shame My Love For You Makes All
Your Lies Seem True
But If The Truth Makes Love Last Longer
Why Do Lies Make My Love Stronger

Ain’t That Peculiar
Peculiar As Can Be
Ain’t That Peculiar Baby
Peculiar-Ality

(Repeat Chorus)

Girl you walk around,

Cause you hurt so many before
And never had to cry, no

But you better stop, honey
And realize, yeah
That one day soon
You’re gonna have to be penalized

OH…

That’s how love goes
You gotta reap just what you sow
You’ll get those tears and run free
Happen to you, like it’s happened to me, baby

That’s how love goes
You gotta reap just what you sow
You’ll get those tears, and run free
It’s gonna happen to you,
Just like it’s happen to me, girl

Because you made me cry,
You think you’re the baddest of them all
Yes you do, now
Well I hope I’m around, my dear
When he sets you free and you fall, yeah

Then you’ll find it’s not such a laugh
When tears run ’til you can’t see, no no no
Your heartaches are gonna come
And so is your misery, yeah

(CHORUS)
That’s how love goes
You gotta reap just what you sow
You’ll get those tears and run free
Happen to you,
Like it’s happened to me, baby

That’s how love goes
You gotta reap just what you sow
You’ll get those tears and run free
It’s gonna happen to you,
Just like it’s happen to me, girl

That’s how love goes
You gotta reap just what you sow
You’ll get those tears and run free
Happen to you,
Like it’s happened to me, baby

(BRIDGE)
But let me tell you something…
Baby you better stop,
And take a real good look at yourself
‘Cause when those heartaches strike
You’re gonna wish you were somebody else

Oh, that smile that you’re wearing

baby he’s gonna put you down
na, na, na, na, na, na, na,

Oh baby, Oh baby, OH!!!

(REPEAT CHORUS x4)
That’s how love goes
You gotta reap just what you sow
You’ll get those tears and run free
Happen to you,
Like it’s happened to me, baby

Lead vocal: Jermaine and Jackie Jackson

Written by Whitfield/Strong

YouTube link – “Papa Was a Rolling Stone” (Moving Violation tour live)

 

It was the third of September
That day I’ll always remember, yes I will
Cause that was the day, that my daddy died
I never got a chance to see him
Never heard nothin’ but bad things about him
Momma I’m depending on you, to tell me the truth
Momma just hung her head and said, son

(Chorus)
Papa was a rolling stone, (my son)
Where ever he laid his hat was his home
and when he died, all he left us was alone

(Repeat Chorus)

Hey Momma!
Is it true what they say that Papa never worked a day, in his life
And Momma, some bad talk goin’ round town sayin’ that Papa had three outside children
And another wife, and that ain’t right
Heard them talking Papa doing some store front preachin’
Talked about saving souls and all the time reaching
Dealing in debt, and stealing in the name of the law
Momma just hung her head and said…

(Chorus)
Papa was a rolling stone, (my son)
Where ever he laid his hat was his home
and when he died, all he left us was alone

Hey Momma,
I heard Papa called himself a jack of all trades
Tell me is that what sent Papa to an early grave
Folks say Papa would beg, borrow, steal
To pay his bills
Hey Momma,
Folks say Papa never was much on thinking
Spent most of his time chasing women and drinking
Momma I’m depending on you, to tell me the truth
Momma looked up with a tear in her eye and said, son…

(Chorus)

Papa was a rolling stone, (my son)
Where ever he laid his hat was his home
and when he died, all he left us was alone

Superstition

Michael Jackson – The Jackson 5 – from the Album: The Jackson 5 in Japan (1973)

Written by Stevie Wonder

YouTube link – “Superstition”

 

Very superstitious, writing on the wall
Very superstitious, ladders ‘bout to fall
Thirteen month old baby, broke the looking glass
Seven years of bad luck, the good things in your past

When you believe in things that you don’t understand,
Then you suffer,
Superstition ain’t the way, na-na-na

Very superstitious, wash your face and hands
Rid me of the problem, do all that you can
Keep me in a daydream, keep me going strong
I don’t want you to save me, sad is my song.

When you believe in things that you don’t understand,
Then you suffer,
Superstition ain’t the way, yeah, yeah

Superstition ain’t the way, yeah, yeah

Very superstitious

Very superstitious

You’re my love you’re my angel

The girl of my dreams
I’d like to thank you for waiting patiently
Daddy’s home, your daddy’s home to stay

How I’ve waited for this moment
To be by your side
Your best friend wrote and told me
You had teardrops in your eyes
Daddy’s home, your daddy’s home to stay

It wasn’t on a Sunday (Monday and Tuesday went by)
It wasn’t on a Tuesday afternoon (all I could do was cry)
But I made a promise that you treasured
I made it back home to you

How I’ve waited for this moment
To be by your side
Your best friend wrote and told me
You had teardrops in your eyes
Daddy’s home, your daddy’s home to stay
Daddy’s home to stay
I’m not a thousand miles away
Daddy’s home to stay
I’m gonna be here come what may
Daddy’s home to stay

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]

You don’t have to worry ’cause I’m coming
Back to where I should have always stayed
And now I’ve heard the maybe to your story
And it’s enough love for me to stay

Can it be I stayed away too long
Did I leave your mind when I was gone
It’s not my thing trying to get back
But this time let me tell you where I’m at

I wanna, wanna be where you are
Anywhere you are
I wanna, wanna be where you are
Everywhere you are

And give you all the love I have inside

I wanna, wanna be where you are
I gotta be where you are

THE LOVE YOU SAVE

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…
