Album: Make It Happen (1967)
Charted: 23
  • Ooh, ooh, ooh.
    Let it be soon, don't hesitate, make love, don't wait.
    Open your heart and let my love come in.
    I want the moment to start when I can fill your heart
    with more love and more joy than age or time could ever destroy.
    Oh honey now, my love will be so sound,
    gonna take about a hundred lifetimes to live it down,
    wear it down, tear it down.

    This is no fiction, this no act,
    This is real, it's a fact.
    I'll always belong only to you.
    And each day I'll be living to
    Make sure I'm giving you more love and more joy
    than age or time could ever destroy.
    Oh honey now, my love will be so sound,
    gonna take about a hundred lifetimes to live it down,
    wear it down, tear it down.

    As we grow older, no need to fear,
    'Cause when you need me I'll be here.
    I'll be beside you every step of the way.
    A heart that's truthful, and is keeping it youthful
    With more love and more joy than age or time could ever destroy.
    Oh honey now, my love will be so sound,
    gonna take about a hundred lifetimes to live it down,
    wear it down, tear it down.

    Oh I'm gonna give you
    more love and more joy than age or time could ever destroy.
    Oh honey now, my love will be so sound,
    gonna take about a hundred lifetimes to live it down,
    wear it down, tear it down.

    Oh I'm gonna give you
    more love and more joy than age or time could ever destroy.
    Oh honey now, my love will be so sound,
    gonna take about a hundred lifetimes to live it down,

  • Paul from Detroit, MiI'm a big Smokey fan, but I think Kim Carnes did a better version in 1980. Loved it.
  • Kristin from Bessemer, AlThis is the most quintessential of all the love songs that Smokey Robinson ever wrote - one listen to this song, then you will remember what it was about your significant other you fell in love with-
