Lead vocal: Jermaine Jackson

Written by Charles Hatcher

YouTube link – “Oh How Happy”

 

Oh how happy you have made me
Oh how happy you have made me

I have kissed your lips a thousand times
And more times than I can count
I have called you mine
You have stood by me in my darkest hour

Oh how happy you have made me
Oh how happy you have made me
Oh how happy you have made me
Oh how happy you have made me

In our years together
We had stormy weather
But our love has been so strong
But somehow we carry on

See, oh how happy you have made me
Oh how happy you have made me
Oh how happy you have made me
Oh how happy you have made me

You brought joy to my empty life
And all that’s wrong you made it right
My love, our love, my love, yeah, yeah

Oh how happy you have made me
Oh how happy you have made me
Oh how happy you have made me

Ooh, ooh, la-la-la

The game of love
Is such a beautiful game
If you’ve got time, little girl
I’d like to explain
All the do’s and don’ts
All the will’s and won’ts
So lend an ear, darling dear
(Sweet darling dear)

Do be sincere
And true love will appear
Don’t be shy
Or love will pass you by
If you will
My whole heart you may steal
If you don’t
The game of love you lose alone

(Darling dear)
Do be sincere
And true love will appear
Don’t be shy
Or love will pass you by
If you will
My whole heart you may steal
If you don’t
The game of love you lose alone

(First)
First Ill place my arms
So gently around you
(Then)
Then whisper darling I’m so glad I found you
Then your lips of wine
are softly touched with mine
A kiss we’ll steal, darling dear
(Sweet darling)
Darling, darling dear, yeah
(Sweet darling dear)
Darling dear
(Sweet darling dear)
Darling dear

THE LOVE I SAW IN YOU WAS JUST A MIRAGE

The Love I Saw In You Was Just a Mirage

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Michael Jackson – The Jackson 5 – from ALBUM: Third Album (1970)

Written by Smokey Robinson

YouTube link – “The Love I Saw In You Was Just a Mirage”

 

There You Were Beautiful
The Promise Of Love Was Written On Your Face
You Led Me On With Untrue Kisses
You Held Me Captured In Your False Embrace
Quicker Than I Can Bat An Eye
Since You Were Telling Me Goodbye

Oh, Just A Minute Ago Your Love Was Here
All Of A Sudden It Seem To Disappear
Sweetness Was Only Heartache’s Camouflage
The Love I Saw In You Was Just A Mirage
(You Promised That Happiness We Forever Share)
(But All I Have Are Memories Of Love That Was Never There)

We Use To Meet In Romantic Places
You Gave The Illusion That Your Love Was Real
Now All That’s Left Are Lipstick Traces
From The Kisses You Only Pretended To Feel
And Now Our Meetings You Avoid
And So My World You Have Destroyed

Oh, Just A Minute Ago Your Love Was Here
All Of A Sudden It Seemed To Disappear
The Way You Wrecked My Life Was Like Sabotage
The Love I Saw In You Was Just A Mirage
(You Brought Me Up Just To Throw Me Down)
(You Left Me And My Dreams Shattered All On The Ground)

Oh, Oh, Oh You Only Fill Me With Despair
By Showing Love That Wasn’t There
Oh, Just Like The Desert Shows A Thirsty Man
Green Oasis Where There’s Only Sand
You Lured Me Into Something I Should Have Dodged
The Love I Saw In You Was Just A Mirage
(To You I Gave True Love From Deep Within)
(You Made Me Hungry For Your Love, But It Was No Deeper Than Your Skin)

Michael Jackson – The Jackson 5 – from ALBUM: Third Album (1970)

Written by Beatrice Verdi

YouTube link – “Reach In”

 

Can’t find no rhyme to it all
But still we keep on trying
The why and where of it all
Inside you the answer is lying

Reach in (reach in)
Find that tree of wisdom
Reach in (reach in)
Find out why you’re livin’

Reach in (reach in)
Put away that shame of sin
And let love shine in…
And let love shine in…
Shine, shine, shine, shine….

Don’t take the easy way out
Believe there is a Maker
Don’t be a body of doubt
In whom does live a faker

Reach in (reach in)
Find that tree of wisdom
Reach in (reach in)
Find out why you’re livin’

Reach in (reach in)
Put away that shame of sin
And let love shine in…
And let love shine in…

A soul without love
Is a soul without meaning
And the Lord up above
He’ll destroy every being

Reach in….
Reach in (reach in)
Find that tree of wisdom
Reach in (reach in)
Find out why you’re livin’

Let’s fall in love, let’s fall in love

Find out what you’re missin’
Goody girl lay down your curls
Let me give your heart a twirl

Why don’t you give my love a whirl (Girl, don’t be afraid)

When You’re Down And Out
When You’re On The Street
When Evening Falls So Hard
I Will Comfort You

I’ll Take Your Part
Oh, And Darkness Come
And Pain Is All Around
Like A Bridge Over Troubled Water
I Will Lay Me Down
Like A Bridge Over Troubled Water
I Will Lay Me Down
Ooh

I Will Lay Me Down
Sail On Silver
I Will Lay Me Down
Sail On Silver Girl
Your Time Has Come To Shine
All Your Dreams Are On Their Way

See How They Shine
Oh, If You Need A Friend
I’m Sailing Right Behind
Like A Bridge Over Troubled Water
I Will Ease Your Mind
Ooh

I Will Ease Your Mind
