Music / The Jackson 5 Lyrics / Get It Together

Get It Together (2:47)
by The Jackson 5 (1973)

You better get it together
Or leave it alone
If you don’t want my lovin’
I’ll be gone

Get up, get up, get up
Get up off your high horse, girl
Think what you’re doing, doin’
Get up off your high horse, girl
Think what you’re doin’, doin’

I’m spinnin’ around on your merry-go-round
You got me dizzy, dizzy, dizzy, dizzy, dizzy
Get it together
Or leave it alone
If you don’t want my lovin’
I’ll be gone

Now, now, babe

Get it together
Or leave it alone
You better, get it, get it
If you don’t want my lovin’
I’ll be gone

Get up off your high horse, girl
Think what you’re doin’, doin’
Get up off your high horse, girl
Think what you’re doin’, doin’

I can’t stand all this confusion
All this shuckin’ and jivin’
You’re putting down, down, down

Get it together
Or leave it alone
If you don’t want my lovin’
I’ll be gone
Gone, gone, gone, gone

Big girl what you’re doing
Throwin’ this heart of mine all away
Oh, big girl you know I love you
To keep a love like mine is hard this day
All ya gotta do, girl


Don't Say Goodbye Again (3:26)
by The Jackson 5 (1973)

Girl don’t you say
Girl don’t you make
Girl don’t you make
Make me cry
Make me cry

You had my life
In the palm of your hand
Why you threw it away
I’ll never ever understand
You took away the best part
The best part of me
You took away, you
How cruel could you be
You’re just another heartache
I’ve got to learn to take
You’re just another habbit
I have to learn to break
Am I alone again
Am I alone again
Am I alone, alone, alone

Don’t say goodbye again
Don’t say goodbye again
Don’t make me cry, cry, cry
Don’t say goodbye again
Don’t say goodbye again
Don’t make me cry, cry, cry, again
Again, again

The more I try the more you hurt me
Why
Tell me why
Tell me why

I can take an aspirin
For a bad headache
But what pill for loneliness can I take
I can seal to you
Just like cellophane
But I need you, baby
Like a star needs fame
You’re not another habbit
I have to learn to break
Let’s try to patch it up
Before it’s too late
I’m in love with you
I’m in love with you
I’m in love, in love, in love

Don’t say goodbye again
Don’t say goodbye again
Don’t make me cry, cry, cry
Don’t say goodbye again
Don’t say goodbye again
Don’t make me cry, cry, cry, again

The more I try the more you hurt me
Why
Tell me why
Tell me why

(Ad libs)


Reflections (2:58)
by The Jackson 5 (1973)

Through the mirror of my mind
Time after time
I see reflections of you and me

Reflections of
The way life used to be
Reflections of
The love you took from me

Oh, I'm all alone now
No love to shield me
Trapped in a world
That's a distorted reality

Hapiness you took from me
And left me all alone
With only memories
Through the mirror of my mind
Through these tears that I'm crying
Reflects a hurt I can't control

'Cause although you're gone
I keep holding on
To the happy times
Oh, when you were mine

(All the love)
All the love that I've waisted
(All the tears)
All the tears that I've tasted
All in vain

Through the hollow of my tears
I see a dream that's lost
From the hurt, girl
That you have caused
Everywhere I turn
Seems like everything I see
Reflects the love that used to be

Reflections
The love you took from me
Reflections
In you I put all my faith and trust
Reflections
Right before my eyes my world has turned to dust

Reflections
The way life used to be
Reflections
The love you took from me
Reflections
In you I put all my faith and trust
Reflections
Right before my eyes my world has turned to dust

Reflections
The way life used to be
Reflections
The love you took from me
Reflections
In you I put all my faith and trust
Reflections
Right before my eyes my world has turned to dust


Hum Along And Dance (8:33)
by The Jackson 5 (1973)

Let's get down, down, down, down, down
Ain't no words to this song
You just dance and hum along
Said, ain't no words to this song
You just dance and hum along
Now, dance


Mama I Gotta Brand New Thing (Don't Say No) (7:14)
by The Jackson 5 (1973)

Sunday morning I heard mama pray
From a room I heard her say
"Good Lord help my son find his way"
"Lord he's just a country boy"
"Thinks the world is great big toy"
There ain't nothin' he can't do
If he wants to

He got himself a part time job
Saved his money and bought him a guitar
Played from sun up to sundown, hey, hey, hey

(He don't wanna) Go to schoool no more
Don't do his household chores
But I'm a hit, the neighbors biggest sound, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

(He's) Got some big ideas
He's talkin' 'bout leavin' here
Going to a place called New York City
And here's what he told me

Mama, I gotta brand new thing don't say no
Let me go
Mama, (Yeah) I gotta brand new thing don't say no
Let me go

Mama said, "My son, my son you're only sixteen"
"I know being a star is your dream"
"But I think it's time you stop all this foolin'"
"And get to your schoolin'"

Living in a state of frustration
Stop preachin' that education
'Cause this job is gonna make me a king
Above everything else, listen
Donned from head to toe
First class everywhere we go
Just give me a chance to do my thing

Mama, I gotta brand new thing don't say no
Let me go
Mama, I gotta brand new thing don't say no
Let me go
I can see it now

Champagne and caviar
Black limousine, chauffeured car
Trips all around the world
And I'll have my choice of any girl
People lined up as far as you can see
Standing in line just to see me
Money stacking up to the sky
There ain't nothin' that we can't buy
Have a little faith in me
Mama I'm sure


It's To Late To Change The Time (4:00)
by The Jackson 5 (1972)

Too Late
Too Late
Too Late

In this automatic age,
We shop through the yellow page
Gone is the corner store,
There's a supermarket there for ya

People give way to change,
But feelings remain the same

(Chorus)
And it's Too late, Too late to change the time
Well it's Too late, Too late to change the time
And it's Too late, Too late to change the time

But it's not too late (too late) to change your mind

It's a newer day, and a new age
A photograph just taken,
Is ready one minute later

Cars are bigger and better,
But the manufactuer's satisfied, never
In a world full of crime,
I can't let you think that's right

(Chorus)
And it's Too late, Too late to change the time
And it's Too late, Too late to change the time
And it's Too late, Too late to change the time

But it's not too late (too late) to change your mind, no no

So you wanna be a star (Say you wanna be a star)
Already think you are (I think you are)
You don't have to go further...
Than my lovin' arms

(Chorus)
And it's Too late, Too late to change the time
But it's not too late (too late) to change your mind

Are you sure you wanna go to New York City? (New York City)
Where girls make it big, if they're pretty (If they're pretty)
Let's say you get that penthouse view
But who's gonna love you,
The way I do? (Just the way I do)

(Chorus)
It's Too late, Too late to change the time
And it's Too late, Too late to change the time, no
Too Late, Too late to change the time

But its not too late (too late) to change your mind

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

It's too late, too late (Too late) To change the time
It's too late, too late (Too late) To change the time, oh
It's too late, too late To change the time

But it's not to late (too late) to change your mind

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah


You Need Love Like I Do (3:51)
by The Jackson 5 (1973)

Well, well, well, well
Seems like it was only yesterday
When my mama told me don't fall in love
With the first girl that comes your way
He was handsome and nice
But I took her advice and passed her by
Years have passed and don't look
Like love's gonna give me a second try
Boy the look on your face tells me you understand
Could it be your love life's like mine
Needs a helping hand well, well
You need love like I do (don't you)

Girl I can tell by the way
You look when I'm looking at you
I know it ain't fit and proper
For a girl to talk this way
But I can't cope with this loneliness
Not one more doggone day
Everyday has been an uphill climb
Keeping my hopes a-float
Judging from your silence girl
You must be in the same boat
Ain't it true now
You need love like I do (don't you)
Girl I can tell by the way you look
When I'm looking at you
Well, well, well you need love
Like I do (don't you)

(Boy it seems like I'm looking in the mirror
When I'm looking at you
I can't begin to tell
The many nights I sit home lonely
Come on and tell me boy
Has it ever happened to you
Boy I'm gonna tell you something
And believe me it ain't no joke
My love life is just like a sinking boat) No?!

I can understand a person being without money
But there sho' ain't no reason
For a person to be without love
Listen to me now
I'm a girl and you're a girl
So come on let's give love a try
Tell me lil' bgirl
You need love like I do (don't you)
I can tell by the way you look
When I'm looking at you
Girl finding true love is a dream
That everyone wants to come true
Girl can't you see it's up to us
To make this dream come true oh
