Don't Take Your Love
The Manhattans Lyrics


Jack went up the hill for Jill
To get her a pail of water
To show her that he loved her
(Ooh, he loved her)
He really, really loved her
(Ooh, he loved her)

Romeo told Juliet
Something that she could never forget
To show he loved her
(Ooh, he loved her)
He really, really loved her

Whoa, [?] in a storybook
A play of fantasy
They could never compare
With the love between you and me

Because we got a love we can feel
We got a love that's really real
We got a love we can feel
We got a love that's really real

He was such a determined fella
He searched all over for Cinderella
To show he loved her
(Ooh, he loved her)
He really, really loved her
(Ooh, he loved her)

Mary's lamb was white as snow
He followed her wherever she'd go
To show he loved her
(Ooh, he loved her)
He really, really loved her

Whoa, [?] in a storybook
A play of fantasy
They could never compare
With the love between you and me

Because we got a love we can feel
We got a love that's really real
We got a love we can feel
We got a love that's really real

Manhattans, Chi-Lites, Dramatics, Blue Magic, Spinners, Stylistics, Delfonics, O'Jays, Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, Intruders, Main Ingredient, Whispers, Chaka Khan, Three Degrees, Floaters. The 70's had all these great groups and great solo singers, great jazz, great blues, even rock & roll and easy listening sounded good. Man, how could we let them get away? Fantastic post.

This has been on YouTube almost two years and I haven't seen it? Been looking for it all this time. I love Gerald's voice and also his articulation of the word "baby." "Oh baby, baby baybaa..... don't you take it from me baybaa, no,no, no, no, no, no, no,no, I've got to have you baybaaa, yeah yeah yeah". This is the most beautiful song, so glad I still have the 45.
