Minstrel And Queen
The Impressions Lyrics

A little sugar, honeysuckle lamb
Great expression of happiness
Boy, you could not miss with a dozen roses
Such would astound you
The joy of children laughing around you
These are the makings of you
It is true, the makings of you, oh

It's been a miracle for what you've done
Please stay right by my side
Two can be one for the righteous way to go
Anyone would know
I believe I thought I told you so
You're second to none

Love of all mankind should reflect some sign
Of the words I'm trying to recite
They're close, but not quite
Almost impossible to do
Describing the makings of you

Big up Curtis Mayfield, the template for so many great Jamaican reggae singers, especially with this song, covered by the Techniques for Duke Reid. Slim Smith, Cornell Campbell and more modeled their falsetto vocals on that style.

thank you for saying this openly. there are those who deny american r&b having any influence on jamaican music.

neil taylor

this group inspired the rocksteady period in Jamaica and the Jamaicans have impeccable taste in music apart from their originality in taking it further

Im listen to this at 3 in the morning just reminiscing thinking about my Mom's and Pops dancing to this song in the 70s, while listening to WDAS on Sunday at 7pm Harvey Holiday. Wow how times flys and this song stays timeless just listen to the beat, the rhythm, the bass. Such a beautiful classic๐Ÿ’šโœŒ๐Ÿ’ฏ
