Made To Love You

they say you won’t make it,
but what can you do,
when you look in his eyes
and the reflection is you?

you go for it, you fight for it,
you prove them all wrong;
you live it, you cherish it,
you keep standing strong

you shut out the critics,
you keep only the few,
who knew from the start,
he was made to love you!

*PS – to me, this is one of the most kick-ass bass lines EVER put down by the fabulous James Lee Jamerson

“You know my papa disapproved it
My mama boohooed it
But I told them time and time again
“Don’t you know I was made to love her
Built a world all around her”
Yah! Hey, hey, hey
She’s been my inspiration
Showed appreciation
For the love I gave her through the years
Like a sweet magnolia tree
My love blossomed tenderly
My life grew sweeter through the years
I know that my baby loves me
My baby needs me
That’s why we made it through the years
I was made to love her
Worship and adore her
Hey, hey, hey
All through thick and thin
Our love just won’t end
‘Cause I love my baby, love my baby. Ah!
My baby loves me
My baby needs me
And I know I ain’t going nowhere
I was knee-high to a chicken
When that love bug bit me
I had the fever with each passing year
Oh, even if the mountain tumbles
If this whole world crumbles
By her side I’ll still be standing there
‘Cause I was made to love her”
