  • Floy, Floy, Floy
    Floy Joy!
    Floy, Floy, Floy
    Floy Joy!

    Floy, Floy, Floy
    Floy Joy!
    You're the man.
    I know I'll never own you Floy
    But see me when you can.

    Ooh, ooh, I know
    I'm only one of a million girls
    Who would give their world to you Floy Joy.

    Floy, Floy, Floy
    Floy Joy!

    That's your name.
    Your real name may be Smith or Jones
    But not your claim to fame.

    Oh, it's a joy boy!
    Any girl who knew you at all
    Would have to call you Floy Joy!

    Floy, Floy, Floy
    Floy Joy!

    I get a thrill when I hear your voice now, Floy.
    Floy, Floy, Floy
    Floy Joy!
    You're the man.

    How much joy
    Do I get from you?
    You give me
    So much pleasure
    It's impossible to measure--

    Floy, Floy, Floy
    Floy Joy!

    You're the man.
    I hope in someway form or fashion
    I fit in your plan.

    Ooh, take me!
    I want to give myself to you
    And live my whole life through with you
    Floy Joy!

    Floy, Floy, Floy
    Floy Joy!

    Floy, Floy, Floy
    Floy Joy!

    A-let me hear you say it one more time
    Say it again.

    Floy, Floy, Floy
    Floy Joy!

    A-let me hear you say it one more time
    Say it again.

    Floy, Floy, Floy

  • Kristin from Bessemer, AlWith the release of this song, critics and audiences began to notice that the Supremes had once again had a "soulful sound", something they appearently lacked when Diana Ross was spearheading the group.
  • Markus from Fall River, MaDre, regardless of your opinion, what Kent wrote is actually TRUE. Also, he said those songs "fared" better in the UK (meaning they did better, not meaning they WERE better). In fact, not only was "Automatically Sunshine" a UK Top 10, many years later it was featured in a UK commercial (I think for detergent).

    I'm from the US, and I happen to both know AND like the song!
  • Andre from The Bronx, NyGee, Kent, we have never heard of one person much less an entire country that thought or thinks that, for example, "Automatically Sunshine" (barely anyone knows the song) is better than such #1 million-selling Diana Ross-led Supremes songs like "Love Child", "I'm Gonna Make You Love Me" and "Someday We'll Be Together". Your comment is not for real. - Dre
  • Kent from Toronto, CanadaStrangely enough, all Supremes singles following Diana Ross's departure fared significantly better than they had with her for years... in the UK. (Their last UK top ten hit had been "Reflections", #5 in 1967. With the new line-up, the first five consecutive singles made top ten: "Up The Ladder To The Roof": #6, "Stoned Love": #3, "Nathan Jones": #5, "Floy Joy": #9, "Automatically Sunshine": #10. Compare to the seven preceding Ross & Supremes positions, chronologically: #13, #28, #34, #15, #14, #37, #13.)
