Higher And Higher
The Dells Lyrics


Your love is liftin' me higher
Than I've ever been lifted before

Your love is liftin' me higher
Than I've ever been lifted before
So keep it up, quench my desire
And I'll be at your side forevermore

Now once, I was downhearted
Disappointment was my closest friend
But you came, he soon departed
And he never showed his face again

Ohh I'm so glad I finally found you
You're that one in a million man
When you wrap your lovin' arms around me
I can stand up and face the world again

Your love is liftin' me higher
Than I've ever been lifted before
So keep it up, quench my desire
And I'll be at your side forevermore

Oh your love is liftin' me higher
Than I've ever been lifted before
So keep it up, quench my desire
And I'll be at your side forevermore

Your love is liftin' me higher
Than I've ever been lifted before
So keep it up, quench my desire
And I'll be at your side forevermore

2004 Rock n Roll Hall of fame inductees.
Marvin Junior, Johnnie Carter, Michael McGill,
Verne Allison, Chuck Barksdale. - May their
music endure forever.

Jeff Cripps

A rare example of a cover being superior to the original... well done Jackie + the Funk Brothers

Loud N-Love

TOTALLY AGRREED - Wilson gives ST8 Energy & PASSION to the Song and way More ROCKIN' Version.

Definitely a different song than the Jackie Wilson song. Concept may be the same,
but lyrics are totally different.

Bradley Scarton

There is a good section of this song that was definitely copied. Enough so that the songwriters for this were credited for writing Jackie’s “Higher and Higher” and rightly so.

Richard Jones

So that's where it comes from :-)

Rocking Ronnie Walker

Is this the original version of the Jackie Wilson song?

The Dells are fast becoming 'INTERNET GODS' since the 'Pepsi Generation' has caught on to them, After 'The 5 Heartbeats' based on their tumultuous 60 year career. The group currently has 245 singles on Youtube. You can't hide The Dells anymore,
because their Talents are too great.

@Chris Mulwee
Thanks for that Chris.

Yes it is! It's on before they were hits volume 2. Both this and Jackie's were from 1967, But this was recorded earlier in the year. Jackie turned into a different song practically
