  • Let's stay together

    I, I'm I'm so in love with you
    Whatever you want to do
    Is all right with me
    Cause you make me feel so brand new
    And I want to spend my life with you

    Let me say that since, baby, since we've been together
    Loving you forever
    Is what I need
    Let me, be the one you come running to
    I'll never be untrue

    Oh baby
    Let's, let's stay together (gether)
    Lovin' you whether, whether
    Times are good or bad, happy or sad
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, yeah
    Whether times are good or bad, happy or sad

    Why, why some people break up
    Then turn around and make up
    I just can't see
    You'd never do that to me (would you, baby)
    Staying around you is all I see
    (Here's what I want us do)

    Let's, we oughta stay together (gether)
    Loving you whether, whether
    Times are good or bad, happy or sad
    Come on
    Let's stay,(let's stay together) let's stay together
    Loving you whether, whether times are good or badWriter/s: AL JACKSON JR, WILLIE MITCHELL, AL GREEN

Apr 2015, Though this is his biggest hit and an alltime Fav, this site should also add one his OTHER big hits to the list. His Remake of the Bee Gee's "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart."

Al sang that Great Pop Song of the Bee Gees and turned it into a Soul Opus.
