Things I do For You

Michael Jackson – By The JACKSONS from Album: Destiny (1978)

Written by The Jacksons

YouTube link – “Things I Do For You”

YouTube link – “Things I Do For You” (Dallas Live Concert video)

 

People all over the world
Are the same everywhere I go
I give in to this, I give in to that
Everyday it bothers me so

Am I in a bad situation
Ah people take me to the extreme
Am I being used, I just need a clue
I don’t know which way to go

So I took my problems to a  doctor so he could check it out
(He don’t know)
Took it to a palm reader so she can read my hand
(She don’t know)
Five minutes later
I started to understand
And I started screaming and shouting and acting mad
No one could help me but myself
But I gave everything

CHORUS
It’s the things I do for you
In return do the same for me
It’s the things I do for you
In return do the same for me

Always wanting something for nothing
Especially what they don’t deserve
Reaching in my pocket, I just gotta stop it
Oh they’ve got a lot of nerve

Am I in a bad situation
Ah people take me to the extreme
They don’t use rejection, so I need protection
To keep my equity

So I took my problems to a  doctor so he could check it out
(He don’t know)
Took it to a palm reader so she can read my hand
(She don’t know)
Five minutes later
I started to understand
And I started screaming and shouting and acting mad
No one could help me but myself
But I gave everything I had

CHORUS
It’s the things I do for you
In return do the same for me
It’s the things I do for you
In return do the same for me

Shake it over
(hee, hee, hee)

CHORUS
It’s the things I do for you
In return do the same for me
It’s the things I do for you
In return do the same for me

It’s the things I do for you
In return do the same for me
It’s the things I do for you
In return do the same for me

NEVER CAN SAY GOODBYE

Never Can Say Goodbye

 

Michael Jackson  ALBUM:  MAYBE TOMORROW (1971) BY JACKSON 5

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]

CAN YOU FEEL IT

Can You Feel It

Michael Jackson –  The Jacksons –  From Album “Triumph” (1980)

YouTube link – “Can You Feel It”

Wikipedia link: “Can You Feel It”

 

If you look around

The whole world is coming together now

 

Can you feel it, can you feel it, can you feel it

 

Feel it in the air,

the wind is taking it everywhere

 

Can you feel it, can you feel it, can you feel it

 

All the colors of the world should be

Loving each other wholeheartedly

Yes, it`s all right

Take my message to your brother and tell him twice

Spread the word and try to teach the man

Who`s hating his brother, when hate won`t do

Cause we`re all the same, yes, the blood inside me is inside you

Now tell me .. .

 

Can you feel it, can you feel it, can you feel it

Can you feel it, can you feel it, can you feel it

 

Sing out loud

Because we want to make a crowd

Touch a hand and sing a sound so pure, salvation rings

 

Can you feel it, can you feel it, can you feel it

Can you feel it, can you feel it, can you feel it

 

All the children of the world should be

Loving each other wholeheartedly

Yes, it`s all right

Take my message to your brother and tell him twice

Take the news to the marching men,

Who are killing their brothers, when death won`t do

`Cause we`re all the same

Yes, the blood inside me is inside of you

 

Can you feel it, can you feel it, can you feel it

Can you feel it, can you feel it, can you feel it

 

Every breath you take

Is someone`s death in another place

Every healthy smile

Is hunger and strife to another child

But the stars do shine

In promising salvation, is near this time

Can you feel it now

So sisters and brothers

Show we know how

Now tell me …

 

Can you feel it, can you feel it, can you feel it

Can you feel it, can you feel it, can you feel it

LOVELY ONE

Lovely One

Michael Jackson from The Jacksons ALBUM:  “Triumph” (1980)

Written by Michael Jackson and Randy Jackson

YouTube link: “Lovely One” (concert)

Wikipedia link: “Lovely One” (song)

 

Why don’t you believe me when I say that I love you?
I’m crazy ’bout you
Wear the face that tells me you think my loving ain’t true
I’m all about you
You’re my desire
I get higher every time I speak your name
All I do (that’s all I do, that’s all I do, that’s all I do)
The way that I can’t sleep at night just proves what I go through
I’m crazy ’bout you

Now the first time that I saw you walking down the street so pretty
Gone with your bad self
Now you say that I don’t love you
When it’s giving my love pains
It’s the hurt and the tension
Girl, it’s driving me insane

Chorus
You are my, you are my
You are my lovely one
You are my, you are my
You are my lovely one
You are my, you are my
You are my lovely one
You are my, you are my
You are my lovely one!

Why don’t you believe me when I say that I am true?
I’m crazy ’bout you
I’m here to love and please you
I’ll do what you want me to
I’m all about you
Living and hoping, but I’m coping
With these things you put me through
All I do (that’s all I do, that’s all I do, that’s all I do)
The way that I can’t sleep at night
Just proves what I go through
I’m crazy ’bout you

Now the first time that I saw you walking down the street so pretty
Gone with your bad self
Now you say that I don’t love you
When it’s giving my love pains
It’s the hurt and the tension
Girl, it’s driving me insane

Chorus

You are my, you are my
You are my lovely one
You are my, you are my
You are my lovely one
You are my, you are my
You are my lovely one
You are my, you are my
You are my lovely one!

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…

But I do know that I love ya
You walk around this town
With your head all up in the sky
And I do know that I want ya

Let’s dance, let’s shout (shout)

Shake your body down to the ground
Let’s dance, let’s shout (shout)
Shake your body down to the ground

You tease me with your loving
To play hard to get
Cause you do know that I want ya
You walk around this town
With your head all up in the sky
And you do know that I want ya

Let’s dance, let’s shout (shout)
Shake your body down to the ground
Let’s dance, let’s shout (shout)
Shake your body down to the ground
Let’s dance, let’s shout (shout)
Shake your body down to the ground
Let’s dance, let’s shout (shout)
Shake your body down to the ground

You are the spark that lit
The fire inside of me
And you know that I love it
I need to do just something
To get closer to your soul
And you do know that I want ya

Let’s dance, let’s shout (shout)
Shake your body down to the ground
Let’s dance, let’s shout (shout)
Shake your body down to the ground
Let’s dance, let’s shout (shout)
Shake your body down to the ground
Let’s dance, let’s shout (shout)
Shake your body down to the ground

You and I must make a pact, we must bring salvation back
Where there is love, I’ll be there
I’ll reach out my hand to you, I’ll have faith in all you do
Just call my name and I’ll be there

[Chorus:]
And oh – I’ll be there to comfort you,
Build my world of dreams around you, I’m so glad that I found you
I’ll be there with a love that’s strong
I’ll be your strength, I’ll keep holding on – yes I will, yes I will

Let me fill your heart with joy and laughter
Togetherness, well that’s all I’m after
Whenever you need me, I’ll be there
I’ll be there to protect you, with an unselfish love I respect you
Just call my name and I’ll be there

If you should ever find someone new, I know he’d better be good to you
‘Cause if he doesn’t, I’ll be there

Don’t you know, baby, yeah yeah
I’ll be there, I’ll be there, just call my name, I’ll be there

(Just look over your shoulders, honey – ooh)

I’ll be there, I’ll be there, whenever you need me, I’ll be there

Don’t you know, baby, yeah yeah
