The Love You Save
The Jackson 5 Lyrics


Stop na na na, you'd better save it!
Stop, stop, stop, you'd better save it!

When we played tag in grade school
You wanted to be It.
But chasing boys was just a fad
You crossed your heart you'd quit.

When we grew up you traded
Your promise for my ring
Now just like back to grade school
You're doing the same old thing!

Stop, the love you save may be your own!
Darling, take it slow
Or some day you'll be all alone.
You'd better stop, the love you save may be your own!
Darling, look both ways before you cross me
You're headed for the danger zone.

I'm the one who loves you!
I'm the one you need!

Those other guys will put you down
As soon as they succeed!

They'll ruin your reputation!
They'll label you a flirt!

The way they talk about you
They'll turn your name to dirt, oh!

Isaac said he kissed you
Beneath the apple tree
When Benji held your hand he felt
Electricity
When Alexander called you
He said he rang your chimes.
Christopher discovered
You're way ahead of your times!

Stop, the love you save may be your own!
Darling, take it slow
Or some day you'll be all alone.
You'd better stop, the love you save may be your own!
Darling, look both ways before you cross me
You're headed for a danger zone.

Slow down.
Slow down.
Slow down.
Slow down.

S is for "Save it"
T is for "Take it slow"
O is for "Oh, no!"
P is for "Please, please, don't go!"

The love you save may be your own
Some day you may be all alone
Stop it!
Save it, girl!
Baby, ooh!
You better stop, the love you save may be your own
Please, please
Or some day, some day baby,
You'll be all alone

I'm the one who loves you!
I'm the one you need!

Those other guys will put you down
As soon as they succeed. (Ah!)

Stop, the love you save may be your own, baby
You'd better stop it, stop it, stop it girl!
Or someday you'll be all alone.

The way they talk about you
They'll turn your name, turn your name to dirt.

Stop, he love you save may be your own!
Don't you know don't you know.
Some day baby you'll be all alone. (Wait a while)

Those other guys will put you down
As soon as they succeed.

Stop, the love you save may be your own!

The way Michael and Jermaine traded lyrics back and forth were spot on as if they were veterans in the business yet were so young

armynurseboy

Yeah, Jermaine's voice was a perfect foil for Michael's

Malik Hill

They had a tv movie

Dawn Preston

They were amazing connecting in music. Better than in their real lives towards each other.
