[ NOBODY ]

(Written and composed by The Corporation)


Nobody, no, nobody, said nobody,

No, no, no, nobody to love me like you do,

To love me like you do, to love me like you do.

Money in the bank, money in the bank

Don't mean a thing

Money can't buy, money can't buy

The love you bring.

Your love, baby

Can make a blind man see, yes, it can.

Can make the devil

Get right down on his knees.

Nobody, no, nobody, said nobody,

No, no, no, nobody to love me like you do,

To love me like you do, to love me like you do.

Movie star queen, a movie star queen

Can move me not.

Movie star queen, take off the paint, baby,

Whatcha got?

Take me, girl,

Your my desire, honey,

I get steaming hot

Every time you light my fire.

Nobody, no, nobody, said nobody,

No, no, no, nobody to love me like you do,

To love me like you do, to love me like you do.

The good book says, the good book says

To share with your brother.

The good book says, when it comes to you,

You better find him another.

You know the wise old owl

Got nothing to say.

But if you loved him like you love me

He'd hoot hoot twenty-four hours a day!

Nobody, no, nobody... (etc to fade)



[ I WANT YOU BACK ]

(Written and composed by The Corporation)


Just let me tell you now

When I had you to myself

I didn't want you around

Those pretty faces always made you

Stand out in a crowd

But someone picked from the bunch

One glance is all it took

Now it's much too late for me

To take a second look


Oh baby, give me one more chance

(To show you that I love you)

Won't you please let me

(Back in your heart)

Oh darlin', I was blind to let you go

(Let you go baby)

But now since I see you in his arms


(I want you back)

Yes I do now

(I want you back)

Ooh ooh baby

(I want you back)

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

(I want you back)

Nah nah nah nah


Tryiní to live without your love

Is one long sleepless night

Let me show you girl

That I know wrong from right

Every street you walk on

I leave tearstains on the ground

Following the girl

I didn't even want around


Just Let me tell you now

Oh baby, all I need is one more chance

(To show you that I love you)

Won't you please let me

(Back in your heart)

Oh darlin', I was blind to let you go

(Let you go baby)

But now since I see you in his arms


All I want, all I need, all I want, all I need

Just one more chance

Show you that I love you, baby

(I want you back)

Forget what happened then

Let me live again

Oh baby, I was blind to let you go

But now since I see you in his arms

(I want you back)

Spare me of this cost

Give back what I lost

Oh baby, I need one more chance

Iíll tell you that I love you



[ CAN YOU REMEMBER ]

(Written and composed by Tom Bell and William Hart)


Can you remember (can you remember)

When we were babies (babies)

We were always together

When we were in kindergarten (kindergarten)


But now that you are grown

So girl you left me all alone

And you know i'll never find

No one to call my own

So girl, i love you

Don't you know i love you (don't you know i love you)


(I sure do, like for you)

Like for you (to remember if you can)

Hey, can you remember

(The time we had and the time we shared)

And the time we shared

(Sitting together in the grass)

For the grass there


Can you remember (can you remember)

When we were babies (babies)

We were always together

And our love had no end (had no end)


The sunny skies are blue

So girl, you know that i love you

And i'll always promise you

That this is what i'll do

So girl, i love you, i love you

Don't you know i love you


(I sure do, like for you)

Like for you (to remember if you can)

Hey, can you remember

(The time we had and the time we shared)

And the time we shared

(Sitting together in the grass)

Can you remember (i sure do, like for you)

Like for you (to remember if you can)

The time we had (the time we had)

And the time we shared (and the time we shared)

We should've never left playing in the grass



[ STANDING IN THE SHADOW OF LOVE ]

(Written and composed by Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier and Edward Holland Jr)


Standing in the shadows of love

Iím getting ready or the heart aches to come.


Standing in the shadows of love

Iím getting ready for the heartaches to come.

(canít you see me) standing in the shadows of love

Iím getting ready for the heartaches to come.


I wanna run but thereís no place to go

For heartaches will find me I know.

Without your love, a love I need

Itís the beginning of the end of me.


Cuz youíve taken away all my reasons for living

When you pushed aside all the love Iíve been giving.

Now wait a minute!

Didnít I always treat you right

Now baby didnít i, didnít i, didnít i?

Didnít I do the best I could

Now didnít i, didnít i?


(donít you see me) standing in the shadows of love

Getting ready for the heart aches to come.

(canít you see me) standing in the shadows of love

Doing my best to get ready for the heart aches to come.


All alone Iím destined to be

With misery my only company.


It may come today, or it may come tomorrow

But itís for sure Iíve got nothing but sorrow.

I thought your conscience would kinda bother you

How can you watch me cry after all Iíve done for you?


Hold on a minute!

I gave you all the love I had

Now didnít i, didnít i, didnít i?

When you needed me I was always there

Now wasnít i, wasnít i?


(donít you leave me) standing in the shadows of love

Iím getting ready for the heartaches to come.

Iím trying not to cry outloud

Cuz all this cryiní it ainít, it ainít gonna help me none!


Now what did I do, girl, to cause all this grief?

Now what did I say to make you want to leave?

Now wait a minute!

I gave my heart and soul to you

Now didnít i, didnít i, didnít i?

And didnít I always treat you good

Now didnít i, didnít i?


(donít you see me) standing in the shadows of love

Iím getting ready or the heart aches to come.

(repeat to to fade)



[ YOU'VE CHANGED ]

(Written and composed by Jesse Reese)


Hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah.

I remember when you was a little girl

You wore nothing but an old shaggy, shaggy dress

I say you never ever try to look your best.

Now when I look at you

All my love come a'running through.

You've changed and it's showing

My love for you is growing

You've changed and it's showing

Yeah. Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah.

You legs were little

But now they are big

Instead of wearing a pony tail

You wear a little red wig

Your eyes are pretty

You got some kissable lips

And I love the way you walk

Cuz you swing your hips!

Now when I look at you

All my love come a'running through

You've changed and it's showing

My love for you is growing

You've changed and it's showing.

Hoo hoo. Yeah. Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah.

Now when I look at you

All my love come a'running through

You've changed and it's showing

My love for you is growing

You've changed and it's showing.

[ MY CHERIE AMOUR ]

(Written and composed by Henry Cosb, Stevie Wonder and Sylvia Moy)


My Cherie Amour

Lovely as a summer day

My Cherie Amour

Distant as the Milky Way

My Cherie Amour

Pretty little one that I adore

Youíre the only girl my heart beats for

How I wish that you were mine


In a cafe or sometimes on a crowded street

Iíve been near you

But you never noticed me

My Cherie Amour

Wonít you tell me how could you ignore

That behind the little smile I wore

How I wish that you were mine


My Cherie Amour

My Cherie Amour


Maybe someday you see my face among the crowd

Maybe someday you share your little distant cloud

Oh, Cherie Amour

Pretty little one that I adore

Youíre the only girl my heart beats for

How I wish that you were mine



[ WHO'S LOVING YOU ]

(Written and composed by William ďSmokeyĒ Robinson)


When I had you

I treated you bad and wrong, my dear

And, girl, since, since you went away

Donít you know I sit around

With my head hanginí down

And I wonder whoís loviní you


I should have never ever made you cry

And, girl, since, since youíve been gone

Donít you know I sit around

With my head hanginí down

And I wonder whoís loviní you


Life without love

Itís all so lonely

I donít think, I donít think

Iím gonna make it

All my life, all my life, yeah

Belongs to you all, lady

Come on and take it, girl

Come on and take it

Because all, all I can do, all I can do

Since youíve been gone is cry



[ CHAINED ]

(Written and composed by Franck Wilson)


Seems like yesterday

You were in my arms

And in a special way

You touched my heart with all your charms.

Now you're gone

And I find myself

Baby, I'm all alone

And there's no love left.

Hey! Hey!

Don't know why I failed.

For you I've always cared

And I did all I know

To win your love and make it so

You'd always stay

But you turned away.

Honey, what could I say?

How could you

How could you do me this way?

Cuz I'm chained

To your love and affection.

Chained cuz your love

Is my only direction

Huh huh huh huh huh huh huh huh huh huh huh.

I've got to make it right

Somehow it all went wrong

Somewhere down the line

The love I lost

The love I gotta find

Whoah! and it won't be long

I've gotta make it right baby

And carry you tenderly back home.

I'm chained

To your love and affection.

Baby, chained to your love.

When I hear your name

How I tremble, how I tremeble, yeah.

Honey, you know, honey, you know, yeah.

Now I admit that I

Haven't been the perfect guy

For a girl as sweet as you

But my heart and soul cries out to you.

One more chance that's all I need

I'm gonna make it right, baby,

Now you just stay won't you stay with me?

Cuz I'm chained

To your love and afection.

Baby, I'm chained cuz your love

Is my only direction.

I'm chained...

[ (I KNOW) I'M LOSING YOU ]

(Written and composed by Whitfield and Barrett Strong)


Your love is fadin', I feel it fade

Ah, your love is fadin', I feel it fade

Ah, your love is fadin', woman I feel it fade

Ah, woman, woman your touch, your touch has gone cold

As if someone else controls your very soul

I've fooled myself long as I can

Can feel the presence of another man

It's there when you speak my name

It's just not the same

Ooo babe, I'm losing you

It's in the air

It's there everywhere

Baby, baby, babe, I'm losing you

When I look into your eyes

A reflection of a face, I see

I'm hurt, down-hearted and worried, girl

'Cause that face doesn't belong to me

It's all over your face

Someone's takin' my place

Ooo baby, I'm losing you

You try hard to hide

The emptiness you feel inside

Oo babe, I'm losing you

I can't bear the thought of losing you

Ah woman, can't you see what I'm goin' through

I'm losin' my mind (losin' my mind)

And it's all because of you

I can't bear the thought of losing you

I'm losin' my mind (losin' my mind)

And it's all because of you

I can't stand the thought of losing you



[ STAND! ]

(Written and composed by Sylvester Stewart)


Stand! In the end you'll still be you

One that's done all the things you set out to do.

Stand! There's a cross for you to bear

Things to go through if you're going anywhere.

(Everybody say):

Stand! For the things you know are right.

It's the truth that the truth makes them so uptight.

Stand! All the things you want are real.

You have you to complete and there is no deal.

Yeah yeah yeah yeah. Oom bah bah bah Oom bah bah bah

Stand! Stand!

Huh! Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya

Stand! Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya .

Stand! They will try to make you crawl.

And they know what they're saying makes no sense at all.

Stand! Don't you know that you are free?

Well, at least in your mind if you want to be.

(Everybody say):

Huh! Hah! Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya.

Huh! Hah! Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya. (etc. to fade)



[ BORN TO LOVE YOU ]


Girl, as you walk by

I see the sign so deep inside.

I knew it had to be

When you smiled for a little while.

I heard the same rhapsody

So lovely and so fair.

I knew right then and there

That you were made for me.

And it wasn't hard to see

Guess I was born to love you.

Guess I was born to love you.


Darling I, I was born to love you

Give my love to no one but you.

This is a man with the future in his hands

Don't let go, don't let go,

Baby, don't let go.


You better come on

And take my hand

Cuz I can't understand

This feeling in my soul

But I know that I would rather die

Than to let this feeling go

Oh, now, girl, can you see

That this was meant to be?

It's funny but it's true

Guess I was born to love you.

Guess I was born to love you.

Guess I was born to love you.
