Lyrics / Paroles


michael
You better

jackson 5
Get it together
Or leave it alone
If you donít want my loviní
Iíll be gone


michael
Get up, get up, get up
Get up off your high horse, girl
Think what youíre doing, doiní
Get up off your high horse, girl
Think what youíre doiní, doiní

jackson 5
Spinniní around


michael
Iím spinniní around on your merry-go-round
You got me dizzy, dizzy, dizzy, dizzy, dizzy


jackson 5
Get it together
Or leave it alone
If you donít want my loviní
Iíll be gone


michael
Now, now, babe


jackson 5
Get it together
Or leave it alone
You better, get it, get it
If you donít want my loviní
Iíll be gone

jermaine
Get up off your high horse, girl
Think what youíre doiní, doiní
Get up off your high horse, girl
Think what youíre doiní, doiní


michael
I canít stand all this confusion
All this shuckiní and jiviní
Youíre putting down, down, down


jackson 5
Get it together
Or leave it alone
If you donít want my loviní
Iíll be gone
Gone, gone, gone, gone

michael
Big girl what youíre doing
Throwiní this heart of mine all away
Oh, big girl you know I love you
To keep a love like mine is hard this day
All ya gotta do, girl

jackson 5
Get it together
Or leave it alone
If you donít want my loviní
Iíll be gone

Get it together
Or leave it alone
If you donít want my loviní
Iíll be gone
Gone, gone, gone, gone
