  1. Motown Man

From the recording Who Come Down?

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
