Buh buh buh buh
Buh buh buh buh
I love you.

[Jermaine:] Whoah, little girl
[Michael:] Whoah, little girl

[Jermaine:]
You wonder why I stop and stare
Every time that you are near
Just because I love you.

The silly things I say and do
Are all designed to get attention from you
Just because I love you.

[Michael:]
(Listen)
Hey, girl, would you believe
He’s slowly going out of his head.

[Jermaine:]
And it’s just because, just because I love you.

Ah, if you were mine I’d promise you
I’d do all I can to make your dreams come true
Just because I love you.

[Michael:]
(Listen)
Hey, girl, would you believe
He’s slowly going out of his head.

[Jermaine:]
Oh, and it’s just because, just because I love you.

[Michael:]
Whoah, little girl, just because I love you

[Jermaine:]
Believe me, girl, this is true
Don’t want no other love but you.

[Michael:]
Just because I love you.

[Jermaine:]
Oh, watch me, baby, hear me say
Gonna marry you, girl, and take you away.

[Michael:]
Just because I love you.

[Jermaine:]
Oh, that is why I stop and stare
Every time you are near.

[Michael:]
Just because I love you.

[Jermaine:]
Believe me, girl, this is true
Don’t want nobody else but you… [fade]

PENNY ARCADE

Penny Arcade

JACKSON 5 / THE JACKSONS – from the Album: Boogie (1979)

Lead vocal: Jermaine and Michael Jackson
Written by Mel Larson / Jerry Marcellino / Deke Richards)

Video – “Penny Arcade” (not YouTube)

 

Girl you got me dizzy
You put me on a merry-go-round
While my heart was spinning
You’re somewhere else messing around

When we’re together
I think that I’m your only prize
You change like the weather
A little heartbreaker in disguise

Riding on a Ferris wheel
Is the way I wanna feel
But I ‘m standing in a line
And I can’t get a ticket to ride

Pretty little penny
You’re spending all the love I make
’til there isn’t any
You play your games
Penny arcade

Hey girl come on down
Get your feet back off the ground
Together baby we can ride
Come on honey don’t hide

Pretty little penny
You’re spending all the love I make
’til there isn’t any
You play your games
Penny arcade

Girl you make believing
You tell me candy coated lies
I ‘m the one you needing
Forget about the other guys

I know how you got this name baby
You were playing fun and games
Playing fun and games
I was busy as a bee [busy busy]
Honey take care of your business with me

If you keep lying [better slow down a baby]
You’ll wake up crying
Pretty, pretty little baby
You’re spending all the love I make
’til there isn’t any
You play your games [penny arcade]
You play your games [penny arcade]
You play your games [penny arcade]

OH, I’VE BEEN BLESSED

Oh, I've Been Blessed

Michael Jackson – The Jackson 5 – from ALBUM: Boogie (1979)

Lyrics author: Frank Wilson, Lena Manns

YouTube link – “Oh, I’ve Been Blessed”

Oh-oh, I’ve been blessed With someone heaven sent
Someone I can’t forget
Oh-oh-oh, I’ve been blessed
With a smile that you
Composed for you

I used to walk life’s crowded streets
With a  broken heart and love out of reach
Just wasted years, just tasted tears
I was so confused and then I met you
And that heavy load that I used to bear
You said “bring it to me, bring it today”
Darling, oh yeah

I’ve been blessed
From the day we met
‘Til I’m happy yet
Oh-oh-oh, I’ve been blessed
With a sunny sky
And a girl is mine

Just like a bird with a broken wing
Into your arms I gladly came
You sheltered me and I felt free
And our mended heart
Once torn apart and a sound was heard
That shook the earth it was my heartbeat
Can’t back it now, no
Move on out teardrops, move on out

Oh-oh, I’ve been blessed
With someone heaven sent
Someone I can’t forget
Oh-oh-oh, I’ve been blessed
With a smile that you
Composed for you

Oh-oh, I’ve been blessed
Too late, too late, too late, too late, yeah

All the footsteps that walked this path
Can they find true love the same as I have
All the men, just make your plans
We can walk together
You’ll be planning forever

Oh-oh, I wanna know
Haven’t you’ve been blessed
Ooh, forever
Oooh-ooh-oh, I’ve been blessed
Oh-oh-oh, oooh-oooh
Oh, I’ve been blessed

One Day I'll Marry You

Michael Jackson –  The Jackson 5 – from ALBUM: Boogie (1979)

Lyrics author: Pam Sawyer, LaVerne Ware

YouTube link – “One Day I’ll Marry You”

Girl, you think I’ll grow and find someone new
And forget about you?
Never! I’m in love with you

Ooh, one day I’ll marry you
One day we’ll marry
Ooh-ooh, one day I’ll marry you

Look at my face
Go on and read my eyes
If this is the truth, you see
Then girl, you are wise
You know, you know, you know
Know, know, know

One day I’ll marry you
One day we’ll marry
Ooh-ooh, one day I’ll marry you

Loving you is what I see
It represents all I need
Uh-huh-huh, yeah
Uh-huh-huh, girl, I love you

They try to tell us
We got to long to wait
But forever darling it’s never too late
You know, you know, you know
You know, know, know

One day I’ll marry you (yes I will)
One day we’ll marry
I mean it baby
One day I’ll marry you
Look at my face
Go on and read my eyes
Come a little closer
Look at my face
Tell  me, do my eyes lie?

Shucks girl, I don’t want you to promise me anything
‘Cause promises can be broken
But I’m gonna see it to ya that you love me forever
Then my heart, it can’t be broken

If you think I’m gonna give you up
Throw away that sweet word, love
I possess the girl, I guess
Man and wife, nothing else, yeah

(One day I’ll marry you)
One day, one day, one day, one day

We’ll be grown folks and we’ll be together
‘Cause I love you, girl
And I’ll love you forever

One day, one day, one day, one day
(One day, one day)
I’ll buy the  ring
(One day, one day)
And lots of pretty things
(One day, one day)
One day, one day, one day, one day
Oh, baby

I WAS MADE TO LOVE HER

I Was Made to Love Her

By Michael Jackson –  The Jackson 5 –  from ALBUM: Boogie (1979)

Written by: Stevie Wonder

YouTube link – “I Was Made To Love Her”

 

I was born in Lil’ Rock,
Had a childhood sweetheart, yeah
We were always hand in hand.

I wore hightop shoes and shirt tails
Suzy was in pig tails
I knew I loved her even then

You know my papa disapproved it
My mama boohooed it, yeah
But I told them time and time again
“Don’t you know that I was made to love her,
Build my world all around her”
Yah! Hey, hey, hey.

She’s been my inspiration,
Showed appreciation, yeah
For the love I gave her through the years

Like a sweet magnolia tree
Our love blossomed tenderly
My love grew sweeter through the years

I know that my baby loves me
My baby needs me, yeah
That’s why we made it through the years

I was made to love her
Worship and adore her
Hey, hey, hey

All through thick and thin
Our love just won’t end
‘Cause I love my baby, love my baby. Ah!

My baby loves me
My baby needs me, yeah
And I know I ain’t going nowhere

I was knee-high to a chicken
When that love bug bit me,
I had the fever with each passing year

Oh, even if the mountain tumbles,
If this whole world crumbles,
By her side I’ll still be standing there

Don’t you know that I was made to love her
I was made to live for her, yeah

Ah, I was made to love her
Build my world all around her
Hey, hey, hey

You Should Be Ashamed Of What I’ve Been Seeing, Baby

LOVE’S GONE BAD

  • December 17, 2011 4:19 am

Love's Gone Bad

Michael Jackson – The Jackson 5 – from ALBUMS:  Looking Back to Yesterday and Boogie

Written by Holland – Dozier – Holland

 

YouTube link – “Love’s Gone Bad”

Wikipedia link – “Hello World” (album)

 

Ah I feel a fountain in my brain
Ice-cold water running through my vein
Got a bad taste in my mouth from bitter tears
Heart so sad ’cause love’s gone bad

I see a rainbow all in black
Must be a sign you ain’t coming back
Wake up at night calling your name
I see your face on my window pane
I’ve been this way since you’ve been gone
Without your love I can’t go on
Look in the mirror, what do I see
A crying face, kinda looks like me
Now where’s the love you promised me
Where’s the tenderness to comfort me

Every time some love I choose
I seem to always be the one to lose
Bad taste in my mouth from bitter tears
Heart feels sad ’cause love’s gone bad
Love’s gone bad, heart feels sad

CHORUS

Black crows flying up above
It’s a sign that I live my life without love
Slime’s on the man, slime’s on the sea
Slime’s everywhere I said I’m destined to be
And this is a world where nothing’s right
Since you’ve been gone I can’t sleep at night
You said you’d be true to me
Instead you made a fool out of me
Heart feels sad, love’s gone bad
