The Love You Save

(B. Gordy / F. Perren / A. Mizell / D. Richards)
Originally performed by The Jackson 5
Lead Singer: Taylor



Stop, na, na, na, you better save me
Stop! Stop! Stop! You better save me
When we played tag in grade school, you wanted to be it
You chased those boys, you justified
You crossed your heart, you quit
When we grew up you traded
Your promise for my ring
Now just like back in grade school
You're doin' the same old thing

Stop, the love you save may be your own
Darlin' take it slow or someday you'll be all alone
You better stop, the love you save may be your own
Darlin' look both ways before you cross me
You're heading for a 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

Isaac said he kissed you underneath the apple tree
When Benji held your hand you felt the electricity
When Alexander called you, he said he rang your chimes
Christopher discovered you're way ahead of your time

(chorus)
Hold on, hold on, hold on hold on
S is for save me
T is for take it slow
O is oh no
P is for please, please don't go

Stop, the love you save may be your own
Someday you may be all alone
Stop it, save me girl
Baby you better stop, the love you save may be you own
Darlin' take it slow or someday 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
Stop, the love you save may be your own, baby
Stop it, stop it, stop it, girl
You're heading for a danger zone
