Live Wire )
Martha Reeves & The Vandellas Lyrics


It's my birthday, and he forgot again
Every time we date, he's always late
All the abuses and excuses, I've made up my mind
Gonna tell him this time we're through
But everything I plan to say
Just seems to fade away
Every time I see his face
My eyes light up, sparks start to flyin'
Like a live wire, real live wire
Just like a bolt of lightnin', it sets my soul on fire

Sweet kisses are his alibi
And that's why, that's where my weakness lies
Though I plan and rehearse the things I want to say
The words never never come my way, 'cause
'Cause everything I plan to say
Just seems to fade away
Every time I see his face
My eyes light up, sparks start to flyin'
Like a live wire

Like a bolt of lightnin', it sets my soul on fire
Just like a live wire, real live wire
A bolt of lightnin', oh yeah, sets my soul on fire
Like a live wire, real live wire

I love this song. I think it's my favorite from them. Martha has a strong voice.

In every sense, these girls and the Marvelettes were far more "talent superior" to the Supremes any day!!!!!

Above excellence. I'm still dancing to this. I'm 73 years old and bopping this at the clubs! I tell the DJ to play it. Guys come up to me and ask me about it.
