I've Been Good To You
Brenda Holloway Lyrics


Look what you've done; you've made a fool out of someone
Who thought love was true & found out that you
Were just having fun
Oh why do you wanna make me blue?
After all, I've been good to you
Oh yes I have

For a long long time, you needed someone & I made you mine
You needed a friend, so I took you in
& I treated you kind
Oh why do you wanna make me blue?
After all, I've been good to you

I have always been around
& I have never, I've never let you down
So now you're telling me that you must go
You know that it's hurting me so, yeah

But there'll come a time, one day, one day you'll wake up & find
You'll come back to me on bended knees
You're gonna be cryin'
Oh why do you wanna make me blue?
After all, I've been good to you
I've been good to you, oh yes I have
I've been good to you, yes I have
...& fade

I have this on one of ther "best of" collection CDs. This version sounds like an "alternate take." Or maybe the one that I HAVE is an alternate. I LOVE both versions. And I just LOVE ME some BRENDA HOLLOWAY !!! One of many of the Motown voices that just plain got away.

Good 🎤 voice! Motown had so much talent! 🎵🎶

Vanessa Padilla

This song always lifts my Spirits..

Cal Waite

This woman makes me melt....MELT! The only other voice I know even remotely close to hers was Mel'isa Morgan's....go check out her "Do You Still Love Me," and really listen to it -- Brenda could have sung it just as well, maybe.
