Happy Birthday My Brother Salute to the 77th Birthday Of The Greatest Songsmith Of Our Time

Salute to William “Smokey” Robinson
Happy Birthday

Every so often my mind skips to Soul Town
Especially when my thoughts are kinda lowdown
Listening to Smokey brings my spirits uptown
My body and mind began the journey downtown
I truly happy that Smokey worked hard for Motown
Doesn’t it seem like you were right my Fingertips
That we were about to Get Ready
For that Quiet Storm
Asking for More Love while Cruisin’ and Going To A Go Go
Ooo Baby I’m not your Choosey Beggar
You’re Really Got A Hold On Me
Because I seem to be on the Outside Looking In
Mama said Shop Around don’t let that Bad Girl get you down
I Got a Job After All Everybody’s Gotta Pay Some Dues
You Can’t Turn Me Off in The Middle of Turning Me On
You think I am Mickey’s Monkey
How do I Track These Tears of Clown
All I want is More Love
Baby Come Close Second that Emotion
Listen to that one Heartbeat Baby Don’t Cry
For I am Swept For You
You say my Girl Has Gone Try Something New
Yet Being With You I’ve Made Love to You A Thousand Times
I even got A Tattoo burned on my behind
This Agony is my Ecstasy Coincidentally Wait
Are We at the Fork In the Road
Why Build Me Up To Break Me Down
We just wanted to be Beautiful People
You were that New Girl in The Neighborhood
I ask to Talk To Me Sometimes Your Mother Understood
Yet you Gotta Get Away
I said Stop Doubting My Love
You read my Love Letters I wrote my Wedding Song
Baby, Please Come Close They Said She Is a Virgin Man
Afterward thinking Will You Love Me Tomorrow
Did I Fulfill Your Need
I’ve Got You Under My Skin
Time After Time Night And Day
Our Love Is HereTo Stay
Wanna Know My Mind
Why My Love’s So Fine
After All For Once In My Life
If You Can Want You Can Need
Darling Dear Hold On To Your Love
I’ll Be Your Love Machine
You See My Business is Your Pleasure
I am my Mother’s Son On That You Can Depend And Never Worry
I am Your Composer We’ll Write This Family Song
Tea For Two Show Me You Can Dance You See
I am Swept For You Baby This is No Skid Row
Save Me, Promise Me, Speak Low
The Feeling Is Fine That is The Bottom Line
So On This Special Occasion Simply Rewind
We Are Ready To Roll No Sleepin’ In
It’s always a Smokey’s Robinson Day
His rhythmic words are certainly at play
His love of creeds, his great deeds are here to stay
Smokey, You Really Have a Hold On Me
Every so often my mind skips to Soul Town
Especially when my thoughts are kinda lowdown
Listening to Smokey brings my spirits uptown
My body and mind began the journey downtown
I truly happy that Smokey worked hard for Motown.
