I Want You Back (2:58)
by The Jackson 5 (1969)

When I had you to myself, I didn't want you around
Those pretty faces always make you stand out in a crowd
But someone picked you 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've seen you it is on
(I want you back)
Oh I do now
(I want you back)
Ooh ooh baby
(I want you back)
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
(I want you back)
Na na na na

Trying to live without your love is one long sleepness night
Let me show you, girl, that I know wrong from right
Every street you walk on, I leave tear stains on the ground
Following the girl I didn't even want around

Let me tell ya 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've seen you it is on

All I want...
All I need...
All I want!
All I need!

Oh, just one more chance
To show you that I love you
Baby baby baby baby baby baby!
(I want you back)
Forget what happened then
(I want you back)
And let me live again!

Oh baby, I was blind to let you go
But now since I've seen you it is on
(I want you back)
Spare me of this cost
(I want you back)
Give me back what I lost!

Oh baby, I need one more chance, hah
I'd show you that I love you
Baby, oh! Baby, oh! Baby, oh!
I want you back!
I want you back!
(Fade out)

Never Can Say Goodbye (3:08)
by The Jackson 5 (1971)

Never can say goodbye
No, no, no, no... I
I never can say goodbye
Even tho' the pain and heartache seem to follow me wherever I go
Tho' I tried and tried to hide my feelings then 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?
But I never can say goodbye
No, no, no, no
I never can say goodbye
Ev'ry time I think I've had enough and start heading for the door
There's very strange vibrations, piercing me right to the core
It says turn around you fool you know you love her more and more
Tell me why is it so?

Don't wanna let you go
I never can say goodbye girl
(never can say goodbye, girl)
Ohh, ohh, baby,
(don't wanna let you go, girl)
I never can say goodbye,
No, no, no, no, no, no

Ohh, I never can say goodbye girl

I never can say goodbye,
No, no, no, no, no, no,
Ohh

Never can say goodbye
No, no, no, no
I never can say goodbye
I keep thinkin' that our problems soon are all gonna work out
But there's that same unhappy feelin' there's that anguish, there's that doubt
It's that same old dizzy hang-up can't do with you or without
Tell me why is it so?

Don't wanna let you go
I never can say goodbye girl
(never can say goodbye, girl)
Ohh, ohh, baby,

I never can say goodbye
No, no, no, no, no, no

You just play on my emotions
With please, please, pretty please
Well everybody's got the notion

Up in the heavenly sky
I only know my heaven is here on earth

My beautiful bird you have flown away
I held you to tight, I can see
You're all I need to get by
No one else can make me cry
The way you do baby

(Chorus)
You are the book that I read each day
You are the song That I sing
Gonna sing it to you
You are the four seasons of my life
But maybe tomorrow, you'll change your mind girl
Maybe tomorrow, you'll come back to my arms girl

You're all I need to get by
No one else can make me cry
The way you do baby

Got To Be There (3:22)
by Michael Jackson (1972)

Got to be there
I got to be there
In the morning
When she says hello to the world
Got to be there
I got to be there
Bring her good times
And show her that she’s my girl

Oh, what a feeling there’ll be
The moment I know she loves me
’Cause when I look in her eyes I realize
I need her sharing the world beside me

So I got to be there
I Got to be there in the morning
And welcome her into my world
And show her that she’s my girl
When she says, ‘Hello world!’
I need her sharing the world beside me

That’s why I’ve got to be there
I got to be there where love begins
And dance everywhere she goes
I’ve got to be there so she knows
That when she’s with me
She’s home

Got to be there
Got to be there


The Love You Save (3:06)
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)


Who's Lovin' You (4:05)

When I had you
I treated you bad and wrong, my dear
And, girl, since, since you went away
Don’t you know I sit around
With my head hangin’ down
And I wonder who’s lovin’ you

I should have never ever made you cry
And, girl, since, since you’ve been gone
Don’t you know I sit around
With my head hangin’ down

Come on and take it, girl
Come on and take it
Because all, all I can do, all I can do
Since you’ve been gone is cry

He rocks in the tree tops all day long
Hoppin' and a-boppin' and singing his song
All the little birdies on Jaybird Street
Love to hear the robin go tweet tweet tweet

Rockin' robin, rock rock
Rockin' robin
Blow rockin' robin
'Cause we're really gonna rock tonight

Every little swallow, every chick-a-dee
Every little bird in the tall oak tree
The wise old owl, the big black crow
Flappin' their wings singing go bird go

Rockin' robin, rock rock
Rockin' robin
Blow rockin' robin
'Cause we're really gonna rock tonight
Yeah, yeah

Pretty little raven at the bird's bandstand
Told them how to do the bop and it was grand
They started going steady and bless my soul
He out-bopped the buzzard and the oriole

He rocks in the tree tops all day long
Hoppin' and a-boppin' and singing his song
All the little birdies on Jaybird Street
Love to hear the robin go tweet tweet tweet

Rockin' robin, rock rock
Rockin' robin
Blow rockin' robin
'Cause we're really gonna rock tonight

Pretty little raven at the bird's bandstand
Told them how to do the bop and it was grand
They started going steady and bless my soul
He out-bopped the buzzard and the oriole

He rocks in the tree tops all day long
Hoppin' and a-boppin' and singing his song
All the little birdies on Jaybird Street
Love to hear the robin go tweet tweet tweet

Rockin' robin, rock rock
Rockin' robin
Blow rockin' robin
'Cause we're really gonna rock tonight
