The Love You Save (3:01)
by The Jackson 5 (1970)

[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-tee!
When Alexander called you
He said he rang your chimes.
Christopher discovered
You're way ahead of your times!

(Repeat 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...
(Repeat to fade)


One More Chance (2:59)
by The Jackson 5 (1970)

Everybody loves the star
When he’s on the top
But noone ever comes around
When he starts to drop

But you were someone special
You stuck through thick and thin
But I was much too busy
Trying to shine
To let your love shine in

Let you slip away
I must have been insane
Stop in the name of love
Don’t make me live my life in vain

Give me one more chance
That’s all I ask of you
Just one more chance
I’ll make it up to you
Just one more chance
That’s all I ask of you
I’ll build you a world for two
I’ll make it up to you

Now since I’m all alone
I’m talking to myself
I know you’re out there somewhere
Having fun with someone else

But a distant voice of hope
Echo from within, sayin’
(Don’t give up)
(Your ship is comin' in)

Though my ship’s alone
I’ll play right to the end
I’m crying out
So heaven’s door
Won’t you let me back in

Give me one more chance
That’s all I ask of you
Just one more chance
I’ll make it up to you
Oh, one more chance
That’s all I ask of you
I’ll build you a world for two
I’ll make it up to you

You’ll never know
What I’ve been through
Let your love shine in again
This time I’ll shine with you

One more chance
That’s all I ask of you
Just one more chance
I’ll make it up to you
Oh, one more chance
That’s all I ask of you
I’ll build a world for two
I’ll make it up to you
Oh, one more chance
That’s all I ask of you
Just one more chance
I’ll make it up to you
Oh, one more chance
That’s all I ask of you
I’ll build a world for two
I’ll make it up to you
Oh, one more chance
That’s all I ask of you
I’ll make it up to you
I’ll build a world for two


ABC (2:57)
by The Jackson 5 (1970)

You went to school to learn girl
Things you never, never knew before
Like "I" before "E" except after "C"
And why 2 plus 2 makes 4
Now, now, now
I'm gonna teach you
Teach you, teach you
All about love girl
All about love
Sit yourself down, take a seat
All you gotta do is repeat after me

A B C
It's easy as, 1 2 3
As simple as, do re mi
A B C, 1 2 3
Baby, you and me girl

Come on and love me just a little bit
I'm gonna teach you how to sing it out
Come on, come on, come on
Let me tell you what it's all about
Reading, writing, arithmatic
Are the branches of the learning tree
But without the roots of love everyday girl
Your education ain't complete
Tea-Tea-Teacher's gonna show you
(She's gonna show you)
How to get an "A" (na-na-na-naaaaaa)
How to spell "me", "you", add the two
Listen to me, baby
That's all you got to do

Oh, A B C
It's easy as, 1 2 3
As simple as, do re mi
A B C, 1 2 3
Baby, you and me girl
A B C it's easy,
It's like counting up to 3
Sing a simple melody
That's how easy love can be
That's how easy love can be
Sing a simple melody
1 2 3 baby
You and me

Sit down girl,
I think I love ya'
No, get up girl
Show me what you can do

It's like counting up to 3
Sing a simple melody
That's how easy love can be

(Come 'round Here) I'm The One You Need (2:43)
by The Jackson 5 (1970)

Now you say... everytime you need some affection
The one you love goes in another direction
You just sit back in a daze reunising
'cause you know some other lips, she's been kissing

Now when you need the love you never saw you come 'round here
And when you need some loving arms to hold you come 'round here
Now I may not be the one you want (honey, honey)
But I know, I'm the one you need (honey, honey)
Say now, I may not be the one you want (honey, honey)
But, I know, I'm the one you need (honey, honey)

Your life stands still the minute he goes
You count the hours just hoping he shows

Girl, can't you see while you're looking for his touch (honey, honey)
That I won't want to love you so much (honey, honey)
And while you're looking for kissing friends (honey, honey)
You're lovely with the tears on your face (honey, honey)

Now when you feel the need to cry to someone cry to me
And when you feel the need to lean on someone lean on me
Now, I may not be the one you want (honey, honey)
But I'm sure not the one you need (honey, honey)
now, I may not be the one you want (honey, honey)
But I'm sure not the one you need (honey, honey)

Now, the day, the days, the days you sit round by yourself
He's out fooling round with somebody else
Leaving you alone here with nothing to do
He's just waiting till he has time for you

Now, when the loveliness gets hard to play, girl come 'round here
And when you need a little chicken lover care, girl come 'round here

Now, I may not be the one you want (honey, honey)
But, I'm sure not the one you need (honey, honey)
Now, I may not be the one you want (honey, honey)
But, I'm sure not the one you need (honey, honey)

(Repeat and fade out)

Never Had A Dream Come True (3:00)
by The Jackson 5 (1970)

I never, never had a dream come true
In my every dream, I'm loved by you
And we're free as the wind
And true love is no sin

Therefore, men are men, not machines
I never, never had a dream come true
Without you, the world out
There is painted shades of blue

Since our roads never crossed
I work just to please the boss
Think I might as well get lost in my dreams
Do do do do do.........

I never, never had a dream come true
Yes, I'm gonna dream about you
My whole life through
Seems my folks are ashamed
Said I ain't worth a thing
But I'm glad I'm chained to my creams
Do do do do do........

Keep on dreamin'
Sing along with me
Keep on dreaming


True Love Can Be Beautiful (3:27)
by The Jackson 5 (1970)

Searching
Been looking everywhere soon I'll find you, girl (Soon I'll find you, girl)
I know I'm getting closer now
Can't wait to hold you, girl

The day I find you, girl you'll love me

Hey, girl
When you're in my arms you'll want to keep to me
I'm sure
'Cause my love's that strong you'll be too weak to leave me

The day I find you girl, now you'll love me

Each day I try harder
With faith and confidence
I know I'll get you

True love can be beautiful, but it takes time (Oh, yeah)
True love can be beautiful, but it takes time

So close
I can still feel your heartbeat, but you're not here
But my searching is all over
Now that you're growing near

Today I finally found you girl, and you love me

You're here in my arms
Where you'll stay today
Always, always

True love (Come on now, baby) can be beautiful, but it takes time
True love can be beautiful, but it takes time
True love (Come on now, baby) can be beautiful, but it takes time
True love can be beautiful, but it takes time

Today I found you, girl
You love me

True love can be beautiful, but it takes time
True love can be beautiful, but it takes time


La-La Means I Love You (3:30)
by The Jackson 5 (1970)

Many guys have come to you
With a line that wasn’t true
And you passed them by
Are you in the center ring
And their lines don’t mean a thing
Why don’t you let me try
No, I don’t wear a diamond ring
I don’t even know a song to sing

All I know is la-la la-la la-la la-la la means I love you
Oh, baby, please, now
La-la la-la la-la la-la la means I love you

If I ever saw a girl
That I needed in this world
You are the one for me
Let me hold you in my arms
Girl, and thrill you with my charms
I’m sure you will see
The things I am sayin’ are true
And the way I explain them to you
Listen to me

La-la la-la la-la la-la la means I love you
Oh, baby please now
La-la la-la la-la la-la la means I love you
Oh, yeah, yeah

The things I am sayin’ are true
And the way I explain them to you
Yes, to you
Listen to me
La-la la-la la-la la-la la means I love you

Oh, you got to understand now
La-la la-la la-la la-la la means I love you
Oh, come on and take my hand now
La-la la-la la-la la-la la means I love you
Come on, and be my only one now
