Music / The Jackson 5 Lyrics / Lookin' Through The Windows

Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing (2:28)
by The Jackson 5 (1972)

Ain’t nothing like the real thing, baby
Ain’t nothing like the real thing, no, no
Ain’t nothing like the real thing, baby
(Ain’t nothing)
Ain’t nothing like the real thing

Ooh, I’ve got your picture
Hanging on the wall
But it can’t see or come to me
When I call your name
(When I call your name)
I realize it’s just a picture in a frame

I read your letters
When you’re not near
But they don’t move me
And they don’t groove me
Like when I hear
(When I hear your voice)
Your sweet voice
Whispering in my ear
(In my ear)

No other sound is quite the same
As your name
(Quite the same as your name)
Your touch can do half this much
To make me feel better
So let’s stay together

Ooh, I got memories to look back on
Though they help when you’re gone
I’m well aware
(I’m well aware)
Nothing can take the place of your being there
(Being there)

Ain’t nothing like the real thing, baby
(Ain’t nothing)
Ain’t nothing like the real thing
Ooh, baby
Ain’t nothing like the real thing, baby
(Ain’t nothing)
Ain’t nothing like the real thing

Ooh, baby
Ain’t nothing like the real thing, baby
Ain’t nothing like the real thing


Lookin' Through The Windows (3:38)
by The Jackson 5 (1972)

(Lookin’ through the window)
(Lookin’ through the window)
(Lookin’ through the window)
(The window)
(Through the window)
(Lookin’ through the window)

Lookin’ through the windows
The window to your heart
Oh baby, yeah
I can see it’s cloudy
The rain’s about to start

Lookin’ through the windows
(Lookin’ through the window)
It seems I caused your fears
Yeah, yeah, yeah
And that little doubt, girl
(And your little doubt, girl)
And now it’s bringing tears
(And it’s bringing tears)

(Remember)
Just remember whatever makes you feel that way
Don’t you worry ’cause I’m gonna stay
Right by your side
(By your side)
To keep on lookin’ through the windows
Lookin’ in your eyes

Lookin' through the windows
(Lookin’ through the window)
Seems like the only way, yeah
I can’t know your feelings
If you still love me today

(Remember)
Just remember whatever makes you feel that way
Don’t you worry ’cause I’m gonna stay
Right by your side
(By your side)
To keep on lookin’ through the windows
Lookin’ in your eyes

Lookin’ through the windows
The window to your heart
Lookin’ through the windows
The window to your heart


Don't Let Your Baby Catch You (3:12)
by The Jackson 5 (1972)

Don't let your baby catch you
Don't let your baby catch you
Don't let your baby catch you fooling around
You just might lose the best thing you ever found
Don't let your baby catch you fooling around

Oh, the nights are long and twice as cold
Without my baby hands to hold
My happiness is fading away (Is fading and fading)

Just like a thief I tried to steal a kiss
From another pretty miss
My baby was the price that I paid

Now listen fellas
(Think twice) Think twice if you have cheating on your mind (Watch your step)
Remember the punishment will fit the crime

(Don't) Don't let your baby catch you
(Don't) Don't let your baby catch you
(I said don't) Don't let your baby catch you fooling around
You just might lose the best thing you ever found
Don't let your baby catch you fooling around

Oh, I hope it's not too late for me
To right my wrong and foolish deed
I'm gonna crawl back all the way on my knees

And if that don't do I'll get the moon
And set it down in front of her
Oh, before I even say please

If I get one more chance my life will be as good as new
And I would not forget the days
The sun will not shine through

Don't let your baby catch you
Don't let your baby catch you
Don't let your baby catch you fooling around, hey, hey, oh, no
Take me back, take me back, take me back, baby

Don't let her, your baby catch you
You might lose the best thing you ever found
Tell 'em about it Mike

If you're crazy about your baby
And she's crazy about you
Just think of what you'll do to her
If she was untrue

Don't let your baby catch you
(Don't) Don't let your baby catch you
(I said don't) Don't let your baby catch you, hey, huh, alright
Don't let your baby catch you fooling around
You just might lose the best thing you ever found
Don't let your baby catch you fooling arond, hey, hey
Don't let her
Don't let her
Don't let her, no, no, no
Don't let your baby catch you fooling around
You just might lose the best thing you ever found
Don't let your baby catch you fooling around


To Know (3:17)
by The Jackson 5 (1972)

To know of life (To know of life)
Is to know what I'm living for
(Touch my hand) And baby I'm yours

To know of love (To know of love)
Is to know that I live for you
(To be in love) Is to be there with you

(Everyday) Everyday means so much to me (Much to me)
But it all depends on you
Don't you know (Don't you know) oh, baby
We were meant to be (Meant to be)
Oh, life for mebegins and ends with you

To know you're mine (To know you're mine) baby
Is to know how it used to be
Yesterday (Yesterday) is all I can see

That's how I know
Life can be beautiful (Beautiful)
But it all depends on you
Now that you're gone, baby (Since you've been gone)

Just not the same,baby
Since you've been gone
Just not the same,baby

To know of us
Is what I'm still living for
But it all depends on you
Baby, it all depends on you

(Baby, come home) To know happiness
(Home) Is to know you're here in my arms
(Baby, come home) Let me know, let me know, let me know
(Home) What it is to live again
(Baby, come home, home)
(Baby, come home, home)


Doctor My Eyes (3:12)
by The Jackson 5 (1972)

Doctor my eyes
Have seen the years
And the slow parade of fears
Without crying
Now I want to understand

I have done all that I could
To see the evil and the good
Without hiding
You must help me if you can

Doctor my eyes
Tell me what is wrong
Was I unwise
To leave them open for so long, yeah

’Cause I have
’Cause I have wandered through this world
And each moment has unfurled
I’ve been waiting to awaken from these dreams

People go just where they will
I never noticed them until
I got this feeling that it’s later than it seems

Doctor my eyes
Tell me what you see
I hear their cries
Just say if it’s too late for me, oh yeah

Doctor my eyes
Can not see the sky
Is this prize
For having learned how not to cry, oh yeah

Doctor my eyes
Doctor my eyes


Little Bitty Pretty One (2:47)
by The Jackson 5 (1972)

Little bitty pretty one
Come on and talk to me
Lovey dovey lovely one
Come sit down on my knee

I can tell you a story
That happened a long time ago
Little pitty pretty one
I’ve been watching you grow

Little bitty pretty one
Come on and talk to me
Lovey dovey lovely one
Come sit down on my knee

Come on everybody
Let’s put our hands together and sing along
Come on, come on
I’m saying
Come on

I can tell you a story
That happened a long time ago
Little bitty pretty one
I’ve been watching you grow


E-Ne-Me-Ne-Mi-Ne-Mo (The Choice Is Yours To Pull) (2:49)
by The Jackson 5 (1972)

To know of life
(To know of life)
Is to know what I'm living for
Touch my hand and, baby, I'm yours

To know of love
(To know of love)
Is to know that I live for you
To be in love is to be there with you

(Everyday)
Everyday means so much to me
But it all depends on you
Don't you know, oh, baby
We were meant to be
Oh, and life for me
Begins and ends with you

To know you're mine
(To know you're mine)
Is to know how it used to be
Yesterday is all I can see
That's how I know
Life can be beautiful
But it all depends on you
Now that you're gone, baby

(Since you've been gone)
Just not the same, baby
Since you've been gone
Just not the same, baby

To know of us
Is what I'm still living for
But it all depends on you
Baby, it all depends on you

Let me know, let me know, let me know
What it is to live again
(Baby, come home)
(Baby, come home)


If I Have To Move A Mountain (3:16)
by The Jackson 5 (1972)

(Who's the one that loves you)
(The special one who needs you)
You made the odds a million to me
(No one else can love you)
(Nobody else can need you)
No more than the one whose heart you won't believe

So if I have to move a mountain
Simply to prove that you're my love (My love)
That you're my love, baby (My only love)
I'll do it, yes I'd do it
To show I love you

In your eyes
I see no faith
There's an absence of trust
In your embrace

But why would I
Pretend to give
Just to take from the person
For whom I live

(I told you that I love you)
(Especially I need you)
You're one love in a million was made from the stars
(And maybe you'd believe me)
(Then maybe you would need me)
But maybe may not ever convince your stubborn heart

So if I have to move a mountain
Simply to prove that you're my love (My love)
You're my love, baby (My only love)
I'd do it, and I'll do it, yes I'll do it for you
And if I have to stop a river
To make you belive that I'm the one (The one)
That special one you need (That special one)
I'd do it, yes I'd do it (To show I love you)

(Pins and needles sticking in my heart)
(We're so close, but still so far apart)
(What to do, what to do to make you need my love too)

So if I have to move a mountain
Simply to prove that you're my love (My love)
You're my love, baby (My only love)
I'd do it, and I'll do it, yes I'll do it for you
And if I have to stop a river
To make you belive that I'm the one (The one)
That special one you need (That special one)
I'd do it, yes I'd do it (To show I love you)


Don't Want To See Tomorrow (2:44)
by The Jackson 5 (1972)

(I don't want to see tomorrow,
unless I see it with you)

Tomorrow, so they say
Will be a lovely day,
A bright new sun will suddenly break through,
But I don't want to see tomorrow,
Unless I see it with you

Tomorrow, so I hear
The clouds will disappear,
The door to happiness will open wide.
But I don't want to see tomorrow,
Unless you're there by my side.

Don't want to walk alone,
Don't want to dream alone,
Just want you close to my heart.
For if your love is gone,
How can I face the dawn of
Sunday, or Monday?
I just can't face one day...

Until you say you're mine,
Oh, darling, please be mine
And make each bright tomorrow young and new.
But I don't want to face tomorrow
Unless I see it with you

(Tomorrow, so I hear
The clouds will disappear,
The door to happiness will open wide)
But I don't want to see tomorrow,
Unless I see it with you


Children Of The Light (2:26)
by The Jackson 5 (1972)

[Jackson 5]
Children of the Light, ohh
Children of the Light, ohh

[Michael]
People work and people talk
And think that their alive
But ask them what their lifes about
Their quick to run and hide

People laugh and people cry
But never realize
That all the worlds tomorrows lays in what they feel inside

So, take my hand
And walk in the sunshine
Take my hand, from out of the night

We can stand, despite all of the dark lies
A we can build a world that is right
We can be the children of the light

[Jackson 5]
Children of the light,

[Michael]
walk together
All of my brothers, walk together
All of my sisters, walk forever
All of my children, children smile

The time has come for everyone
To stop and look around
To see just where we started from
And wonder where we're bound

The ship we're on has lost it's way

So, take my hand
And walk in the sunshine
Take my hand, from out of the night
We can stand, despite all of the dark lies
A we can build a world that is right
We can be the children of the light

Everybody!

So, take my hand
And walk in the sunshine
Take my hand, from out of the night
We can stand, despite all of the dark lies
A we can build a world that is right
We can be the children of the light


I Can Only Give You Love (2:33)
by The Jackson 5 (1972)

If you want it, you got it
I can only give you love
I can only give you love

Oh Jimmy had a knack for talent
From being a baseball star
It makes you proud to work past it
Cause it breaks all the other girls heart

Well Billy had long black curly hair
And captain of the football team
While guys like me stood on the side
And watched the young girls scream

Oh girl, I can only give you love
I've made no claim to fame, you won't know my name
Oh baby, I can only give you love
Girl if it's love that you need
Come on and get with me

If you want it, you got it
I can only give you love
I can only give you love

If it's love that you need
I got what you need
Come and get it
Come and get it
Come and get it
Come and get it
Come and get it

Wooo!

Now Bobby was a little rich kid
Who lived at the foot of the hill
The first kid in the neighborhood
To have an automobile

Well If I took you to the movies
We'd have to walk the block to the bus
We'll if you went with him
You could already be there
Eating popcorn and stuff

Oh girl, I can only give you love
I've made no claim to fame, you won't know my name
Oh baby, I can only give you love
Girl if it's love that you need
Come on and get with me

If you want love girl
I got all the love you need
I got what you need
I can only give you love
I can only give you love
If you want love girl
I got all the love you need
I got what you need
The love that you need
Come on and get with me

Oh girl, I can only give you love
I've made no claim to fame, you won't know my name
Oh baby, I can only give you love
Girl if it's love that you need
Come on and get with me
