You Don't Have to Be a Star
Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis Jr. Lyrics


You can come as you are, with just your heart
And I'll take you in though you're rejected and hurt
To me you're worth, girl, what you have within
Oh, honey, boy, I don't need no superstar, 'cause I'll accept you as you are
You won't be denied, 'cause I'm satisfied with the love that you can inspire
You don't have to be a star, baby, to be in my show
Oh, honey, you don't have to be a star, baby, to be in my show
Somebody nobody knows could steal the tune that you want to hear
So stop your running around, 'cause now you've found what was cloudy is clear
Oh, honey, there'll be no cheering from the clouds, just two hearts beating out loud
There'll be no parade, no tv or stage, only me till your dying day
You don't have to be a star, baby, to be in my show
Oh, honey, you don't have to be a star, baby, to be in my show
Don't think your star has to shine for me to find out where you're coming from
Oh, honey, girl, what is a beauty queen if it don't mean that I'm number one?
I don't need no superstar, 'cause I'll accept you as you are
You won't be denied, 'cause I'm satisfied with the love that you can inspire
You don't have to be a star, baby, to be in my show
Oh, honey, you don't have to be a star, baby, to be in my show

A real song about real love, we don't get that in today's music anymore.

Trey Dees

70s were the greatest! The black singers, of the late 60s, 70s, early 80s were on a level never reached before or since!

Margaret Smyth

So true. This is one of those reminder’s of young heartache.
Today’s music just can’t stand up to this raw, “tell it like it is”
love thing.

Anthony McCrossan

I totally agree. Pure Class

Paul Picoso

And never will. EVER..

Connie Bauer

I would pay to go back the greatest decade of all! The 1970s!

Sharon Williams

Me too. It was the greatest.
