Lyrics

 

Oh well he wasn’t even breathin’ when Smokey wrote the words to “My Girl” down

And he wasn’t even breathin’ when the Brothers of Funk came up to Detroit town

You know I hear the music, and I love it m’sef, but I don’ understand

How a boy jus’ born in ‘79, becomes a Motown Man

 

Motown man......he’s jus’ a Motown book! Of who, what, where and why.....

Motown man......don’ try to knock him back

‘Cause you cannot stump this guy

 

Now when Berry Gordy Jr. made his records there, he wasn’t even in this world

So maybe it’s surprisin’ that a boy like that can name all the Motown girls

Like Diana Ross, and Mary Wells, and even Martha Reeves was there

And when he feels the beat, he starts dancin’ in the street, sittin’ in his wheelchair!

 

Chorus

Solo

Bridge

Well he scoots to the left, then to the right,when he hears that rock and roll

For knowledge he is starvin’, and jus’ like Marvin

He’s the missin’ link to soul

 

So when you need an explanation ‘bout the Temps or Tops

Call him at The Motown School

He’s prob’ly buried in some book about Motown lore

So don’t you ever think that you are gonna fool....

 

Chorus

Last Chorus

 

Motown man......he’s jus’ a Motown book! Encyclopedia.....

Motown man......don’ try to knock him back

With Motown trivia
